If you are any type of student on the

One of most common
mistakes is to spend years
studying something only to find that you either can't get a job in it
or you hate doing it.
This very expensive
mistake happens when people
rush into courses without first doing "Information Meetings" with
people working in the field.
When possible also
do a "Career Experiment"
before making any big decisions.
For instructions on
how to set up and do
Information Meetings and Career Experiments see the Discover
webpage or for a more
Complete Career Change Kit.
Australia recommends you get
college and course information and then do your information meetings
BEFORE enrolling in anything. We have heard from many clients how they
wasted years and tens of thousands of dollars studying something that
wasn't really suitable before
coming to see us. We frequently hear... "If only I'd seen you sooner!"
With good career
guidance it is often possible to
change careers in ways that can use your existing abilities and
experience without having to do extensive retraining. For some people,
a long course of study is just what they need to move forward in their
careers, for others it is an expensive detour.
To search for
individual courses and institutions
we recommend the free
government MyFuture database.
To gain further
information source is your State Tertiary Admission Centre. Their role
is to provide and operate a centralised tertiary application system for
Universities and many TAFE courses and to publish comprehensive
information for prospective applicants.
Northern Territory universities
received applications directly.
A great site for training, education and development
specifically on the Sunshine Coast is www.learn2live.com.au.
