Students and Parents
With so many job options available today, deciding which career path to choose can be overwhelming. Many students enroll in courses on what they think they can do, without considering whether this is the job that matches their abilities, will use their skills and fits well with their values. In addition, students identified finding a satisfying career the most prevalent fear about the future.
Working with a Career Professional, we can assist in creating and developing a more comprehensive plan to formulate your future career goals. Most students who seek career services are looking for some direction, to better understand themselves and their options, and for a process to help them make career decisions. To ensure a clear direction of career success we recommend The Career Window Programme for year 10 - 13.
The Career Window Programme will help students:
- Determine the careers and areas of study most likely to enjoy by discovering skills, values, interests and personality
- Identify work experience opportunities
- Find new career directions that will be both sustainable and rewarding
- Gain clarity around career direction and goals
- Identify further education and training pathways that may be relevant to career advancement
The Career Window Programme Process
The Career Window Programme begins with a initial personal or skype 1 - 1 1/2 hour interview. You will be guided through and asked to complete a detailed questionnaire that gathers information on your academic qualifications, interests; skills, work values and personality. You will also complete two exercises to understand your personality and determine the best industries and careers to work in.
Following completion of this assessment you will receive a detailed report which outlines the results from the assessment and the most suited careers.
The Career Window Plus Programme - Career Strategy and Action Plan
