Looking to land a job as soon as possible? Or maybe you’re concerned about balancing your work, life and study? At RMIT, upskilling doesn’t have to take years. Some Melbourne TAFE courses can be completed in just six months of full-time study, and if you’re looking to learn a trade, you could even do a Certificate II in just three months.
Making the leap into a new field might feel like a risk at first, but Eastman said it starts with knowing what you bring to the table, and aligning your interests with the in-demand skills that your future employers are seeking.
“Ask people what you’re good at, what you should keep doing and maybe what you should stop doing – this can really help you work out what might be right for you next,” she said.
“And don’t be afraid to give things a go when opportunities arise. The future of work is full of possibilities, and education and training are just the first steps to finding your place in it.”
With part-time study and a selection of free course available, it’s easier than ever to find the option that aligns perfectly to your interests and circumstances.
