WHERE TO NEXT AFTER SCHOOL OR TERTIARY STUDY
Students - get help finding your initial career direction with a friendly and supportive career professional.
A starting point is identifying what you enjoy doing and also your skills, values and abilities. As a CareerSmart licensed practitioner, I offer the CareerSmart online tool to help young people identify their strengths, motivators and interests. This self-reflection process can be helpful when choosing school subjects, possible career interest areas to explore as well as what your first steps beyond school into work, training or further education will be. I encourage proactively exploring widely to find out more about the occupational areas that could suit you. This involves developing the important life skills of researching, networking, making decisions and putting plans into place.
TALK ABOUT CAREER DIRECTION OR CHANGE
Talk about your career, assess your options and what steps you could take to pursue your preferred future role.
I can help you with assessing what types of roles, industries or occupational areas you wish to move into. Perhaps it is more about enriching your current role or developing an additional business idea?Increasingly, people will have many different occupations and roles across their lives. This means lifelong learning is vital - learning new skills, perhaps retraining, studying or starting your own business. With up to date knowledge on tertiary study, I can also help you explore study and training options.
