The big story from this year’s Career Expo is that everyone is looking for apprentices.

Tips for Girls 

If you want to go into a building trade the job prospects are great, the pay is a whole lot better than aged or child care and you have opportunities to go into design, running your own business or project management.

If you would like working in building trades start looking at the big companies first. They are the ones with systems in place that reduce sexism and they try to make workplaces fair.

The National Association of Women in Construction provides support to women employees and to employers who take on a woman.

Check out the companies on their site, that are working with them and create a shortlist of which companies would be best to work for.

If you Hate School

Students who hate school might want to try their luck at getting an apprenticeship while the employer subsidies are available and the building industry is booming.

You are allowed to leave school early if you go into a job or into training. An apprenticeship is a job WITH training.

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.
