Australians will now benefit from a new one-stop-shop career information website with the launch of the ‘Your Career’ website.
The first release of the ‘Your Career’ website designed by the National Careers Institute will help people of all ages plan, navigate and manage their careers.
Minister for Employment, Skills, Small and Family Business, Senator the Hon Michaelia Cash, said this website will serve as Australia’s authoritative source of careers information.
“The Australian Government’s priority is getting people back into work,” Minister Cash said.
“As we deal with COVID-19 and the impact on the economy, everyone should have access to reliable and accurate labour market data, and information on the skilling or re-training options available to them.
“To do that, we need to ensure everyone has access to information about how to transfer their skills to jobs in demand, upskill, retrain or start to plan for their longer-term goals.
Assistant Minister for Vocational Education, Training and Apprenticeships, the Hon Steve Irons MP, said the ‘Your Career’ website delivers on that need because it is driven by world-leading labour market intelligence from the National Skills Commission.
“Australians can use this site to explore their future career options, or to look for options they can pursue now – either local employment opportunities, or short-term study options,” Assistant Minister Irons said.
“Given the changing nature of the labour market, ‘Your Career’ will continue to evolve to enable all Australians to take the next step in their career using tailored careers information.
“I’m confident it will become the go-to place to inform and plan your career.”
Key features of Your Career include:
- career quizzes to explore jobs that match a person’s skills, interests and goals
- information about study or training options to gain new skills, upskill, or reskill
- information to help with a successful job search including resumé writing
- links to support services to help find employment, manage wellbeing and understand rights at work, an A to Z of occupations, including detailed career descriptions, pay and available jobs.
The ‘Your Career’ website can be found at www.YourCareer.gov.au
