Finding My Career Interest

Career evaluation is constant and unending especially for people who are considering their next career step. Career choices can be difficult as there are so many options out there. It can be easier if you know which Work Types you prefer and what career options they lead to. These Work Types are identified through a Career Interest Explorer, co-created in consultation with Australian Centre for Career Education and focus on apprenticeship and traineeship career pathways. There are seven Work Types in total which can lead to different industries and occupations. While it may be easy to choose the best known occupation in a Work Type, it may not be the best option for you.

Realistically, an occupation can be linked to many Work Types, but focusing on your primary Work Type can help narrow down the industries or occupations that may interest you. Below are the seven Work Types that are linked to apprenticeship or traineeship occupations. There may be some occupations that you may not have even thought could be done as an apprenticeship or traineeship.

Please note that some apprenticeships and traineeships may not be available in your state and territory. Use the Work Type Explorer with your selected state or territory to view all approved Australian Apprenticeships.

Researching your career options can be mentally draining, especially if you don't know what you want to do. While it may be challenging to find the "right" career, it does not need to be difficult. By really understanding your Work Types you can start understanding your career interests and exploring the multitude of apprenticeship and traineeship career pathways that suits you.
