Career Prospects - a free tool to plan your career

Looking for a job when you have been working for years and have proven skills and knowledge can be daunting enough - but it's more confusing or challenging if you are studying or entering the workforce for the first time....Here's a free tool.

MBIE (Ministry of Business, Innovation and Employment) have just released an updated Occupation Outlook, including free Apple and Android apps to help you plan a career path.

It has 108 jobs included as indicative careers, to help job seekers and students make good study and career decisions.

The Occupation Outlook shows easy little speedos with information to guide decisions like forecast demand for those jobs, forecast income levels and levels of training required. And this year it has been expanded from 60 occupations to 100+.

And for those who like apps and gizmos - there are free Android and Apple apps ...and a tool to help match your skills to occupations.

Check it out here 


And if anyone from MBIE reads this - thanks for a great tool!

    Technology assists but will never replace a robust recruitment strategy

    Technology has advanced in leaps and bounds, but it will never replace the value in real connections, conversations and relationships. For recruitment it is our relationships, built and developed on understanding and trust, which are key to recruitment success. 

    These relationships start with our Clients and their businesses, and our understanding of their organisational goals and needs.  From our discussions and visits with our Clients, we fully understand their recruitment need, whether it be for a permanent employee in their team or temporary staff cover.
