I had a good session in the Job Search Strategies webinar with the Careers Outreach Officer and my fellow colleagues. I have had a previous session before and she is really good at presenting and elaborating information. Now I have learnt a lot of ways to write good resumes and cover letters and know how to apply for jobs.

Over the past month, our Year 10 students have been exploring future career paths and study options and discussing their own future goals. We were very fortunate to welcome the Careers Outreach Officer from Study Gold Coast to our College as she spent the afternoon educating our students about the World of Work and working with them to formulate a plan on building a pathway towards their dream future. The students received some vital information that will be greatly beneficial as they enter the process of selecting their Senior School classes.
