Get to know yourself and your skills

Once you’re ready to think about getting a job, it’s a good idea to work out a few basics.


How much time do you have available?

You’ll need to work out how much time you’re able and willing to dedicate each week. It’s important to have a clear idea of this before you start working so that you don’t over-commit yourself. Be realistic and don’t forget to take into account other obligations and commuting time to and from work.


Figure out what drives you

Everyone’s motivation is different. Usually we’re motivated by combinations of things, not just one specific thing. But you might find that one motivating forces drives you way more than anything else. 

It’s important to work out what your drivers are, and it’s a great way to start narrowing down future career options. Here are a few examples of things that motivate some people:


Feedback finder 

If you enjoy being told when you’re doing a great job, or love receiving awards and prizes, it’s likely that you’re a Feedback Finder. Feedback and praise might well be the thing that motivates you the most. 

If that’s the case, a job where you have a mentor to guide you and answer any questions could make you feel more secure and be rewarding.


Giving back

If you’re one of life’s helpers, you probably enjoy contributing to your community in any way you can, and try to make the world a better place. Think about industries and careers where you’ll get to help out and make valuable contributions to people’s lives.


People person 

Does being around people help you to feel energised and happy? You might have a large social circle and feel comfortable in all kinds of situations, you’ll happily chat to people of any age and the setting doesn’t bother you. Social specialists gain fulfilment from interactions with other people and thrive in social situations.


Community minded 

You love being a part of a community, whether it’s for sports, culture, religion, or lifestyle. Upholding your community’s traditions and values are a source of pride and make you feel great about yourself and your contributions. You could look for jobs where you’ll play an important role in a community that you’re passionate about – it can be upfront or behind the scenes – which suit your community spirit and be rewarding on many levels.


Financially focused

Money is an important part of our lives and can impact on many aspects of our lives, not just which job we choose. However, if your priority is how much you’re going to get paid (which is totally OK), or you’re always looking for ways to increase your earnings; you’ll need to look for careers where there’s lots of earning potential including opportunities for promotion, or making commission, or perhaps building your own successful business.


Know your Career Cluster

The Career Clusters are a different way of thinking about what jobs are going to help you feel happy and satisfied out in the world of work. 

Learning about your strengths, skills, and values, could help work out a pathway that’s right for you.

There are six Career Clusters:

  • Maker
  • Linker
  • Innovator
  • Coordinator
  • Guardian
  • Informer

Within each Cluster you’ll find people who share a set of duties, core skills and abilities, work environments, and common outcomes. You’ll also find people from each Cluster in every industry, which means you can find a pathway that’s right for you in an area you are interested in.

Knowing where you fit could help make it easier to look beyond the most popular jobs in each industry, and understand the diversity of jobs on offer.


Identify your core skills

Your soft skills are what can help you succeed at work and in life. Employers value them as highly as any qualification.

Everyone has all core skills to some degree, but like motivators and career cluster, we’re all strong in different areas. Knowing your strengths and working on developing your skills in other areas could transform how you perform and how appealing you’ll be to potential employers.

Knowing your core skills and being able to provide evidence or examples of them will also be invaluable when you’re writing resumes, submitting job applications and going into interviews.


Ready to start your search

Remember, nobody knows you better than yourself. Figure out what will make you happy and then you’re ready to start your job search.

Good luck!


7 Sizzling Hot Summer Jobs to Consider

Summer is coming at last, hooray! Whether you’re a fan of getting outdoors and soaking up the rays (in a sun safe manner of course), or you’d love nothing more than a job where you’ll be able to avoid the heat and keep cool every day – there’s a perfect job out there for you.

Here’s our some of our top Summer jobs to explore.


  • Lifeguard

If you’re a strong swimmer, who’s fit and active, and can focus for long periods at a time then working as a Lifeguard could be ideal for you.

Working outdoors at the beach, poolside, near lakes and other bodies of water, or you could apply for jobs indoors at aquatic centres and other recreational facilities.

You’ll spend your days watching over the waterways to keep people safe, carrying out rescues and even performing CPR.

If you’re good with people, able to remain calm in emergency situations and have lots of stamina, you’ll need to complete a relevant VET qualification and get all the skills you’ll need before you can apply.


  • Tiki shack owner

Nothing screams summer like a Tiki shack. These themed entertainment venues usually serve elaborate cocktails, although there could be a niche market for mocktails too.

If you think this could be up your alley, you’ll need to find a venue, then set yourself up with all the necessary business bits and bobs, from a seriously tropical name to an ABN and all the licenses required to keep you operating (the ATO, your local council and registered RSA providers in your state are the best places to start).

From there your imagination is the limit. You’ll need a theme for the decoration and cocktails, find ways to promote your business and get customers through the door to cool off in style.

If you’re not sure you can pull that off while you’re still at high school, you could start small with a Tiki-themed drinks stand; or contact local event planners to see if they’d let you go along and sell your drinks.


  • Swimwear designer

Just as the name suggests, swimwear designers create the latest trends in beach and swim wear.

If you’re creative with a flair for fashion, then you could look into designing your own swimwear line. You’ll probably need to work with a pattern maker to bring your garments to life. And then you’ll need to find a manufacturer who can make up some samples for you to show and sell.

Thinking about fits for all sizes, comfort, and making sure it’ll last the distance are all things you’ll need to perfect. You’ll also need to consider the business side of things, from a logo to marketing and everything in between.


  • Marine biologist

Marine biology is a very broad area and scientists usually choose to specialise in one field. If you love water and the things living in it, you’re looking to discover new things, or you want to help protect the planet, this could be a great area to explore.

A career in this field will require some tertiary study, but that doesn’t mean that you can’t volunteer on projects, run your own clean-up operations, participate in some citizen science, or find other ways to get involved over your summer break.


  • Tour Operator

Tour operators earn a living by providing organised holidays or recreational activities.

They do the research and learn a lot about the destination, attraction or activity. They will design a trip including the itinerary and content, as well as organise and hire any services required such as accommodation, transport, guides or tour leaders. Then they market their package and help people to learn, have fun and create great memories.

You’ll need to be great at planning and some knowledge of small businesses would be helpful if you’re thinking of setting up on your own. You can always start small and aim to grow.

If you need inspiration, AAT Kings started off as a small family business doing guided tours to Katoomba and Jenolan caves in a seven-seater car. They’re now one of the largest tour operators in Australia and New Zealand.


  • Ice Cream Manufacturer

Ice cream manufacturers develop recipes, experiment with flavours, and satisfy their customers cravings.

You don’t necessarily need any qualifications to become an ice cream manufacturer, but gaining some culinary expertise and brushing up on your business and marketing skills could help you to get ahead faster.

The Global Ice Cream Market was valued at a whopping US$111.58 billion in 2020. Ben & Jerry are a great example of how to make it big – they started off in 1978 with a $5 correspondence course in ice cream-making from Penn State and a $12,000 investment ($4,000 of it borrowed). Jerry now has a net worth of $150 million.

You could start off making small batches of ice cream at home to perfect your technique and develop new and interesting recipes – test them on your family and friends. Or scale up and start selling your frozen treats (check that environmental health are OK with you selling your wares and speak with the ATO first maybe).


  • Yacht Captain

If you’ve ever drooled over mega-yachts docked in tropical ports all over the world but can’t quite afford your own just yet, how about living an endless summer aboard someone else’s luxury liner?

The job requires a high degree of responsibility and you’d have to not only sail the ship but also plot and navigate safe passages, manage a budget, maintain your vessel, manage and supervise a crew, plus keep everyone on board safe.

On the plus side you could make a great salary, be paid to travel all over the world, have all your accommodation and meals included, and often get some hefty tips.

You’ll need to be fit and healthy, obtain all the relevant qualifications and licenses, get your experience up working sea hours, and have a great reputation and references.


Meet the young founder behind Hive

Hive Social is a mobile-only social networking app that recently celebrated one million users, founded by student Raluca Pop.

Previously an influencer on Instagram, Raluca found herself becoming tired of the constant ads and trying to keep up with the algorithm. So she decided to take matters into her own hands and create a brand new platform.

With no knowledge of tech, Raluca taught herself to code, and along with another developer launched the first version of Hive in 2019. Today, her small team of three helps to run the growing social media platform.
