When it comes to job security, Australians under 30 have been hit hardest by COVID-19.

21% were stood down or made redundant, or lost their job or business. 30% experienced a drop in income.

That's why Teachers on Wheels is providing free career services to help young Australians get their careers back on track. As part of our Career'd program, we've been running weekly careers webinars with guest speakers from a range of industries, exploring topics such as the latest technologies that could transform the world of work, how to perform well in job interviews, and how to excel in particular industries. We also have an online resume review service and an upcoming mentoring program that we can't wait to launch!

But we need a little help from you to make sure our program can continue running. Your donation will help us cover expenses such as a Zoom video conferencing subscription to run our webinars and mentoring sessions, as well as the cost of expanding our resume review service to help more people.

Any amount you can give will help us equip young Australians facing unemployment, job insecurity and financial uncertainty with the skills, knowledge and support they need to thrive in the workforce.

    Why you need more than smarts to win at work

    Having a high IQ doesn't guarantee you’ll succeed at work.

    In fact, having a high IQ isn't even necessary to have a great career.

    This seems counterintuitive since we focus so much on getting good grades at school.

    But the truth is, excelling at work is about so much more than smarts.

    Our next guest speaker, entrepreneur and marketing wiz Lucio Ribeiro, will explain why emotional intelligence is the key to winning at work. He’ll cover:

    • The difference between emotions and feelings
    • How to take responsibility for your joy and peace
    • How to manage stress and anxiety

    Plus he'll answer all your questions!

    How to break into blockchain with NO technical skills

    You've probably heard about blockchain, a cutting edge technology that will transform the world!

    And you’ve probably heard there are MANY great career opportunities in blockchain.

    Sounds great, right?

    But there’s only one problem.

    You don't have a degree in computer science, or engineering, or anything remotely related to blockchain. Forget formal qualifications: you don't even know how to write a single line of code! And you've pretty much forgotten everything you ever learnt in secondary school maths.

    But don’t give up so fast!

    Turns out you can break into the blockchain industry with NO TECHNICAL SKILLS.

    Our next webinar guest speaker, Tharini Rouwette, is living proof that you don't need to be a coding wiz to excel in the tech industry. She'll explain exactly how you can make the most of the amazing career opportunities presented by blockchain, no technical skills necessary.

    Big Career Opportunities in Big Data

    There's A LOT of data out there. It's estimated that by 2025, 463 exabytes of data will be created in the digital universe every single day.

    (If you're wondering what an exabyte is, well, it's bigger than a megabyte, a gigabyte, or even a terabyte… by a lot).

    But how do we sort through these massive piles of data and make sense of them? That’s where big data analytics comes in.

    With a little help from technologies like artificial intelligence, it's now possible to find and predict trends in very large data sets, allowing businesses, researchers and leaders to make better decisions.

    With big data comes big opportunities for your career. Learn how you can make the most of the big data boom with Dr Mukesh Prasad and Idrees Alsolbi, experts in data analytics and AI from UTS.
