Is your lack of a degree holding you back from career advancement?

Then maybe what you need is a degree, diploma, certificate or accreditation..

Seriously, sometimes the right piece of paper can make all the difference. In the food industry, a food hygiene or food safety supervisor course can be a foot in the door. In the professional fields, Continuing Professional Development (CPD) Credits are a popular way for engineers, dentists, accountants and lawyers to keep up to date and advance their careers.

There is nothing worse than missing a critical element to practice the career you’ve always dreamed of, but even if you are in your chosen profession or industry, you can find yourself stuck or held back from the career fast track just because you don’t have the diploma or certificate that’s needed.

There was a time when an MBA was a ticket to business success – now with specialisations, there are a multitude of options that the serious career person needs to evaluate and assess.

Not everyone is going to get 5 university degrees like I did, across multiple disciplines including engineering, law, business, corporate governance and ecommerce. That’s not really the point.

The point is for you to find the missing piece of the puzzle that permits you to get to the ultimate job, position or role you aspire to. Maybe it’s the corner office with a fabulous view or it’s an international role that allows you to travel the world or it can be a domestic role that provides to your local community.

Australian Student Resource: StudyFinder

This blog is all about helping you get better grades with the least amount of effort. One of our sponsors is http://www.StudyFinder.com.au. I thought I would introduce you to them, just in case you’d like to access up-to-date information for Australian students, in one convenient location.

What is Studyfinder?

Some of the biggest key issues facing our community and institutes are concerning skills gaps, dropout rates, employment opportunities and even affordability of going to school and studying. For example:

  • Why are there large gaps between employment and education?
  • Why are our dropout rates at Institutes across the country so high?
  • Are our students getting the right education?
  • Are students given the right information to choose the right course, program or career?

With a national focus on closing the gap on education and skills, we want to be the web-based ‘[portal’ that revolutionises the education debate so we don’t forget the basics and continue to help students to pick the right course, program or career?

StudyFinder wants to answer basic questions such as:

  • Is it all too hard?
  • Where do I begin?
  • Where can I find more information?

It is quite hard to get started if you don’t know where to begin. The pressure about exams and looking for better grades prove to be too much for some. But it doesn’t have to be that way. Education has evolved and moved into ‘the NOW’.

Courses out there are not all text based, classroom environments, some and in fact most courses are now developing practical skills with little written activity involved. The focus to have “real world” teachers and experience with strong links to industry is becoming the trend.

Today, you can start your quest and get employed by only doing a short course or a certificate rather than having to complete a full-length degree. That means you can start to work, earn money and keep studying as you work.

StudyFinder.com.au wants to help you by providing you proper guidance with a new Australian website designed to remove the frustration and time wasted searching through multiple websites to get to the information you need as a student. It helps students of all levels to search, compare and find study options across a number of areas of study all across Australia.

The tools are available online at www.studyfinder.com.au the best thing is… it’s FREE to use when you register.
