Editorial - Fill in the Gaps to Kick Start a Career

Many people study and become qualified but then get stuck when they can’t get the job they expected.

It is critical to realise that study is only one piece of the puzzle and that many courses, even at the best universities, are not necessarily the complete answer to launching and sustaining a successful career.

We are often approached by people who have a fantastic education in their chosen discipline but lack a key element needed to convert that education into paid work. Sometimes all you need is a short course or some appropriate industry experience; or even a raised awareness of opportunities that exist.

We offer a FREE courses and career counselling service to help bridge this type of gap.

If you or someone you know is “stuck”, contact us at
