QUT career educators are holding workshops in August and September to help with career decision making, and also have phone appointments available for regional students or others who can't attend the workshops.
The workshops are tailored to school age young people and their parents/carers, and adults who have left school, with topics including:
- support with decision-making and preparation for transitions
- where university can lead you
- skills required in the future world of work
- support for your success at university.
Students who can't make a workshop can book a free 15-minute phone career conversation.
Visit the website for details about workshops and phone appointments.
