Another coaching session today with a very bright and capable young uni student who has spent the first semester of uni absolutely hating her course and totally disengaged. This is a straight A student who left school with an ATAR of 99.7.
An example of what happens when you choose a course based on ‘not wasting your ATAR’ rather than researching careers that will suit your personality, utilise your strengths and actually be of interest to you.
Today, the Army is made up of more than 700,000 Soldiers, including active duty and Army Reserve personnel.
Army Soldiers fill many roles. They are doctors, lawyers, and engineers; they are electricians, computer programmers and helicopter pilots; they are police officers, logistics experts and civil affairs representatives. The Army’s constant need for a diverse range of individual Soldiers, each with his or her own expertise is what sets it apart from other military branches.

On April 29, Catherine Lloyd joined the Healthcare Travelling Roadshow from Prince George to Smithers to connect with high school students and share her passion for occupational therapy (OT).
“I was honoured to share my passion and commitment to OT and challenge students to think of creative uses for adaptive equipment, to consider the amazing rehabilitative neuroplastic powers of the brain, and to engage in discussion about inclusion,” she says.
The Healthcare Travelling Roadshow brings together a multidisciplinary group of health-care students from post-secondary institutions around B.C. to showcase career opportunities to rural high school students.
It’ll be two years next month since I took the plunge and drastically changed my career, and set up my business in a brand new field. In that time I have learnt SO much it’s crazy. I am always learning, reading, listening to podcasts etc. I now have a LOT of business books, and am really looking forward to this one. I mean firstly it’s yellow so it’s a winner 🤣 But seriously, it’s interesting how work is changing these days isn’t it? (Does saying “these days” make me sound my age?😬) I often talk with Steve about all the other things I would love to achieve like writing a book, doing interior design/styling, and it’s tricky to know what to do, and how much attention to pay to each thing. Should you concentrate on doing one thing really well or should you branch out? It seems to me that many entrepreneurs by definition have multiple strings to their bows? What do you think?
Aldridge Girls Academy Year 10 students have been focusing on career development, and exploring pathways for future study. They were recently invited to Galangoor Duwalami Primary Health Care Service which introduced the girls to a variety of careers in the health care Industry. The girls had the opportunity to speak to nurses, nursing assistants, doctors, office administrators, and midwives, and asked many questions surrounding these different roles. Many thanks to Regional Community Liaison Officer and Advisory Committee Member, Sharly Murdoch, for organising this valuable experience. #girlsacademy#careerpathways#careeroptions#postschoolpathways#postschooloptions#healthcare#studyoptions
A group of about 60 6th graders from Brooke Charter School's East Boston campus visited the Carpenters Boston Training Center today for a community outreach project where they each built their very own magazine rack. Led by NECTF instructors Brian Connearney and Dana Bean, the students learned about what union carpenters do, shop safety and were assisted by carpenter apprentices throughout the project. We hope you all enjoyed making something with your hands and learning about the carpenters union!
Special thanks to the apprentices assisting today: Emanuel Ruiz of Local 339, Local 327 members Kara Scialdone, Ismail Sulcaj, Gary Twombly and Local 328 members Richard Terminiello, Racquwayne Wint and Paul Zizzo.
