Be ready to move on up

TAFE NSW Counsellors look at ways to progress in your career

BE open
Stay open to new work experiences and learnings so when new opportunities show up or changes in technologies or industries occur, you feel more comfortable and prepared to respond to them and more equipped to set new goals.
Take the opportunity
Your teachers are all industry experts, many still work in the industry or are on boards. You'll have the opportunity to attend industry events organised by your course and by external bodies such as professional associations.
Don't be shy
Tell everyone you know! Employers look for people with energy and ambition, so don't hide it. Plus, many jobs are found through informal networks. Looking to move up in your career is not something you should keep quiet about.
BE focused
Make sure your course is linked to industry, and recognised by employers. There's no use studying an unfocused course that gives you no 'real' skills. You are the expert on your career, so focus on what you really need.
