Career Events

The Career Events Section is calming down in October with only 10 pages of events, opportunities and deadlines this month.

Improving Job Prospects for Young Job Seekers

The Ivan Neville webinar on Improving Job Prospects for Young Job Seekers has a lot of information about what an attractive option TAFE is over uni when you look at the length of time it takes to get a job after graduation and your earning capacity. I summarise his presentation picking out what I found to be the key points.

Teaching Resources

There are pages of teaching resources including two sites that are homes to banks of careers videos and there is information about the new Australian Apprenticeship site with its page for careers teachers.

University News

The University News this month features a new course at Curtin for gifted science students starting in 2018 and a number of new courses that have been released by CQU.

I went to uni because my girlfriend was going to uni. I had no idea. I struggled through my degree. I struggled to avoid teaching. I struggled to find my way in the world beyond school. After washing cars and working in bars I went into marketing and then became an English teacher. It didn't stop there. I went into TAFE, then into HR, then into designing training programs for industry before going into system design and IT. At one stage I became a world expert on collaboration frameworks!! Now I am an expert in career paths from school in Western Australia. You can tap into my expertise by subscribing to my newsletter for West Australian high schools or by working with me online as we design your perfect next step.
