Planning your career

Career planning can feel overwhelming and it helps to break it down into small manageable steps.

The employability map can help.

At registration and enrolment all students complete two careers related questions. These questions relate to career readiness and career development experiences. This process is referred to as Careers Registration and can help you reflect on where you are and what you need.
