As students approach their last years of school there can be a lot of pressure to choose a career. Between needing to select the right subjects and apply in advance for tertiary programmes, it can be overwhelming and easy to go down the wrong path – or even take a gap year due to indecision.
At Swivel Careers we believe choosing a career should be a positive and inspiring experience. Our programmes give students the space, tools and expert support to get clear on who they are and what they want in a career, as well as realistic insights about different careers paths.
I am so grateful for the opportunity of having received coaching sessions from Swivel Careers as they are supportive, empowering and have helped me confidently map out a clear career path whilst still pushing me in the right direction towards having a successful career.
The main difference between Swivel and previous careers sessions was that the Swivel session was based on real-world recruitment techniques, and dealt with how careers and recruitment will actually work in the future.
No matter what stage of life you are in, whether you are a working professional or a student their comprehensive and precise analysis of your personality and goals will help you just as it helped me. I personally was shocked at the amount of information Swivel managed to provide for me and how successful they were in aiding my search for a career path that suited me best.
I had a bit of an idea on what I wanted to do based on my interests, but after being told to ‘just do some more research’ by guidance counsellors I wasn’t 100% on what actions I needed to take to turn that interest into a positive direction.
We talked about how dynamic the work was from day to day, different types of civil engineering and I actually got to visit some of the sites they’re working on. It’s definitely made me more confident in choosing civil engineering as a career and encouraged me to look at gaining work experience early on in my degree
