Careers Assistance

Careers - How Can I Help Myself?

There are a number of places where you can get information about Careers.
Number one is always checking out ideas with the Careers Adviser.
You can of course look for information yourself. 

Here are some recommended websites which may help:

Career Services

Making the right decisions about jobs, training and careers can be difficult. Career Services can help you and your family make sense of the huge amount of information available to you. Career Services is the government agency that provides free and independent information and advice about jobs, courses, training and careers. The Career Services website has information on over 5000 study and training options, with information on funding and scholarships. There are 670 job profiles, interviews with people doing the job, salary ranges, skills and qualifications needed and workplace demand.


Many recent international studies have shown that parents and caregivers are the single biggest influence on a young person's career decisions.
