"Your work is going to fill a large part of your life, and the only way to be truly satisfied is to do what you believe is great work. And the only way to do great work is to love what you do. If you haven't found it yet, keep looking. Don't settle. As with all matters of the heart, you'll know when you find it."

Steve Jobs, former CEO of Apple


Let's start together

For a student or young adult, searching for a career, selecting a University course or finding a job can be stressful and often generates more questions than answers.  And the statistics around this suggest it is a big decision for young adults across New Zealand:

  • 61% of high school students want to go to University

  • 49% of University students won’t complete a standard degree in 3 years

  • 74% of tertiary students seek significant career advice

  • By 2020, Millennials (those born between 1980 and 2000) will be the largest career group

  • The average student debt is now $21000 and increasing each year

These statistics just reinforce the importance of students and young adults making smart choices about their future!

The way that today’s parents found careers when they left school is different from the tools and options that are available to today’s graduates. 


Most schools and parents focus on putting lots of job options in front of their children and hoping they will pick one, but my strategy at Career Matters is to help the young adult get to know who THEY are, using contemporary personality profiles.


Once they know who they are, it’s much easier to find a career that aligns with this!

The benefits for you
  • You get a comprehensive report about careers that align with your personality and interests.

  • Your career results reflect what YOU have said about yourself, not your parents or teachers.

  • The coaching process encourages a more positive partnership between student and parents.

  • The careers results help the student get excited about their future and encourage them to see where THEY can make a difference in the world of work.
