Career Information Bulletin

What is it?

The fortnightly Queensland Career Information Bulletin provides current, timely and informative career information to Queensland schools, students and parents.

The bulletins combine career information and key dates, presented in an easy to use format. You can email the bulletins to your school community, cut and paste key dates and/or career information into your morning notices or school newsletter.

What does it look like?

We know that students are not keen on reading ‘stuff’ and that parents are time poor, so the bulletin format is suited to students and parents wanting 'short sharp' information. A sample of the Career Information Bulletin is available here.

The challenges for schools is ...

Having been in schools for many years we understand that it is challenging in the current school environment to find the time to research what’s happening in careers. There are so many quality opportunities that young people can engage in.

The problem is ...

Career counsellors, guidance officers and career support people struggle to find and circulate these opportunities to students and parents. It is all too easy to miss them and/or miss telling your students about them.

Solving the problem ...

So we have made it easy for you to keep on top of career information. The fortnightly bulletin is designed to provide you and your school community with a summary of current career information and opportunities. Every fortnight the bulletin covers information including:
