Unsure about your career path? We can help
Deciding on a career path that is right for you can be overwhelming and difficult, especially when it involves committing to years of studying at university and racking up a stack of financial expenses.
One in five uni students dropping out
According to the Department of Education figures, up to one in five university students are dropping out Australia wide. In some NSW universities this figure is even more damning.
These figures are the highest drop out rates seen in Australian university in ten years!
Take the time before you commit
It is not uncommon for people in their 20s, 30s or even 40s to not really know what they want to do or what career path to follow. This can happen due to a range of reasons and shouldn’t be something to fret about. It is said that an average person will have multiple careers in a lifetime, so finding the right one for you can take time.
So, what to do when you’re not sure what you want to do? It can help to talk to people who have undertaken various courses, who live the lifestyle you are wanting to live or who people have worked in a range of jobs to help inform your decision and make deciding on a career path that bit easier.
Learn and earn in the meantime
