What's next for you? Talking to students about careers

Published: Wednesday 23rd September 2015


Like most academics, you probably find yourself discussing career pathways with your students, especially if you are a course coordinator, or teach into a generalist degree. And you might have wondered how you could best help students who were looking for, or perhaps should be looking for, career direction.

Tony Borg is here to help, with this presentation “What’s next for you?’ Talking to students about careers.” Tony will offer a framework for thinking about career development, supported by his own fascinating research into the career pathways of Australian school leavers, that will inspire you to approach career conversations with students in a whole new way. 

Tony Borg is putting the finishing touches on his ACU PhD in the area of career development. He works as the Careers Teacher at Muswellbrook High School.

All interested staff members are welcome. 

The presentation will occur on Thursday 29 October 2015 from 1pm to 2pm AEDT. We have booked each of the rooms for beyond 2pm, so if you would like to stay on the line to chat to Tony further, you are most welcome.
