Industry Spotlight Series

To celebrate and raise awareness of the National Careers Week initiative (16-22 May), AATIS has produced several videos with key participants of their respective industries. The videos focus on all things relative to careers and career development and our guest speakers provide useful information on how to use skills and knowledge to plan and make decisions about education, training and work.

We will be releasing five in-depth interviews throughout National Careers Week, so stay tuned for updates across our social media channels!

1. Digital & Technology

We were lucky enough to have an in-depth conversation with TAFE NSW Teacher of Digital Media and Gaming, David Bortolo.

David gave us a great insight into the gaming industry, and the opportunities that are out there for job hunters. We also spoke about the future of the industry, and the emerging technologies that could take the gaming world by storm.

We'd like to thank David for joining us, and hope that you find this discussion as insightful as we did.

2. Transport & Logistics

In the second installment of the series, we have a fascinating discussion about transport and logistics with My Freight Career Founder and Director, Joe Meli.

Joe's experience in the transport and logistics industry has taken him all over the world, and his passion for quality training is infectious.

Join us as we chat about the importance of high quality career pathways and development, and the opportunities within the industry.

3. Building & Construction

In the third installment, we speak to Jody McGann about the building and construction industry.

Jody is the General Manager of Education and Apprenticeships at Master Builders Association of NSW, and we were fortunate enough to have a lengthy discussion about training, apprenticeships and career development.
