Influence on Career Decisions

Parents and families have an incredible influence on the development of young people, regardless of whether this influence is conscious or not. This includes an influence on career decision making.

“Parents have a disproportionate influence on our careers either through well-meaning but partial careers advice or as role models. It is questionable whether all parents are sufficiently well-informed about current work trends to offer sound advice…” Dr Jim Bright, Bright & Associates http://www.brightandassociates.com.au.

The NSW Department of Education and Training has collated some interesting and useful tips and careers information to support parents and families. Go to https://www.det.nsw.edu.au/vetinschools/schooltowork/parentscommunity.

Understanding Teenagers

Teenagers have four things in their lives they have to do:

  1. They have to find out who they are – get an identity.
  2. Get themselves some good friends.
  3. Have some kind of emancipation from their mums and dads – some kind of separation.
  4. They have to connect with an educational institution, so they have some kind of vocational direction in life.

November 2017 Auburn Tyre & Mechanical Services

Auburn Tyre & Mechanical Services has been established for over 30 years. Current owners Eddy Taras and Tarkan Yuksel took over the business some four years ago. Their areas of expertise are mechanical work, supply and fitting of tyres and registration inspections.

They offer year 11 and 12 students, who are studying Automotive as part of the Higher School Certificate, weekly work placements in their workshop.

Students assist tradespeople, clean, check tyre pressure and fill in drop cards in the week they are there.

Co-owner, Eddy Taras, says “Overall the students are well mannered and switched on. We like to observe them in the week they are with us. We look for students who are honest, listen and ask questions. Attitude counts – it is everything! The MWLP Linking Youth Program is a good way for us to find future apprentices. We have offered students casual work with us as well.” (more…)

What do people say?

“You can make a difference in someone’s life just by mentoring them for one week.  It will help you and the student, grow and mature as an individual.  We have had some excellent students resulting in us hiring four waitresses, one kitchen hand and multiple apprentices – all from the MWLP program.”
Campbelltown Golf Club – Darren Neate, Head Chef

“It’s a good opportunity to see the calibre of Macarthur’s youth.  We get to screen those with potential that will ultimately benefit the company.  The students are encouraged to ask lots of questions to assess whether this industry is right for them.  It’s a win-win situation.”
Breseight Australia – Mel McNair
