DISCOVER THE JOB MARKET
Your Working World provides high school students an opportunity to discover the job market and connect them to mentors with real pathways and experience in their areas of interests.
So often those who achieve the most success attribute it to having mentors to guide them. The unfortunately reality though is that high school students are required to make career defining choices during their schooling without adequate support. Often students lack meaningful awareness of the jobs and opportunities available to them, while at the same time having limited independent figures to provide relevant and ongoing career advice.
Without the limitations of physical career markets and the impersonal University presentations, Your Working World is designed to be an additional resource that can be utilised by students, their parents and teachers together, to help facilitate the transition between secondary schooling and the workforce. Students would be encouraged to search and return career pathways to discuss with their career planning teachers and in subject selection meetings as they progress through their senior years.
MENTORS HELP THE TRANSITION
Mentors assist students in the transition from high school to workforce by providing information on their pathway, their day to day role and other useful advice!
Mentors are encouraged to provide students with information on their pathway, including their study and work history, industry memberships, work environment and employment opportunities to empower students to make the right decision for their future.
In return, mentors receive the satisfaction of knowing the next generation of workers are well set up with the fundamental skills and understanding of the world they are about to enter. See more info on our mentors tab, or SIGN UP TODAY!
