Your careers checklist for 2020

So here we are at the dawn of another decade. Resolutions have been made and possibly broken already!  Here’s what’s coming up in the year ahead.


  • If you don’t have exams it’s a good time to get started thinking about the year ahead. Have you considered getting work experience or what you might want to do after University?  Talk to us about how to get started.
  • If you applied for jobs in Semester 1 you may have interviews & assessment centres
  • If you have made applications but not been selected for interviews, keep positive, get some advice, and try again.


Lots of activities to help you re-energise, kick off your job search or just build up some skills.



  • Get ready for Easter vacation – consider work shadowing opportunities or volunteering.
  • Events continue… including The Environmental Careers Event

28 March – 19 April Easter vacation period.
