Gold Coast Careers explorerDiscover your career opportunities in 2 easy steps.

Lets begin
Fast Paced Careers I like excitement, multi-tasking and working to deadlines.
Slow Paced Careers I am patient, precise and like to have time to create, think or research.
To be in control of decision making and I'm not afraid to take risks
To be practical, hands-on and keeping it real in the here and now
Teaching and helping people
Being creative and spontaneous / value self expression
Researching and finding solutions to problems
Like a plan or rule book to follow
