Career Development 'Ask the Practitioner': Friday June 18 (Posted: 18/06/2021)

Because of the amount of questions we still have to respond to, we will send out a final A.T.P. post for Term 2 next Thursday June 24

  • From KBC Yr9: I'm almost at the age that I can get a part-time job, how do I get a job? (sic)
    • Response from Ms. Yucel: Along with the taking on advice the other Career Development Practitioners have given, you should also prepare a resume. There are plenty of videos and guides online about high school student resumes. If you have a resume already prepared, it means you're ready to apply as soon as you have found a job.
    • Response from Mr. Mithat: You can work once you are 11 years old - Lots of jobs are found via people we know so let people know you are looking. A lot of them are online; seek.com is a good site. Also check out: https://www.youthcentral.vic.gov.au/jobs-and-careers/your-rights-at-work/employment-rights-for-under-15s
    • Response from Ms. Whitworth: Start by telling everyone you know you are looking for work. Many jobs are found by word of mouth. Maybe a friend already has a job and can ask at their workplace about upcoming vacancies. Maybe a family member needs a hand with something on a regular basis. Part time jobs for students aged 14 years and 8 months usually require you get a Tax File Number and you can get this at: https://www.ato.gov.au/individuals/tax-file-number/apply-for-a-tfn/
  • From MFC Yr12: How do i get into a course which requires methods. Possible pathways? Specifically Monash (sic)​​​​​​
    • Response from Ms. Yucel: If Methods is a prerequisite, you have to undertake it. If you're asking about how to get into a course that requires Methods but without taking Methods, Monash has a pathway option at Monash College. It costs around $1000 though, so keep that in mind.
    • Response from Mr. Mithat: You can do research via https://delta.vtac.edu.au/CourseSearch/searchguide.htm and search for some courses. They will show you the subjects that you require & you can filter by single subject or your whole list of subjects and choose Monash Uni, and it will list all the courses available to you.
    • Response from Ms. Whitworth: It sounds like Maths is something that really interests you. There are courses at Monash that require Maths Methods and these are often courses like Accounting, Applied Data Science, Business, Commerce, Actuarial Science, Engineering, Biomedical Science. Pick up one of our Monash Guides or go to their website to find out what study scores you need for these courses and the ATAR requirement. If you haven't got Methods and you want to do a course that requires it there are a couple of Universities that offer bridging courses - one of these is Swinburne and another is the University of Melbourne. Monash don't have a bridging course.
    • Response from Mr. Scott: I'm assuming you've not picked Methods, and now you realise you need Methods for some of your 2022 thoughts. A common oversight made (unfortunately). Firstly, see if there are any ways to get to where you want next year without Methods, or not via Monash - these are more logical than doing extra studies. If extra studies are needed, Swinburne has a 'crash course' for Methods: https://www.swinburne.edu.au/study/course/MathsLink-Methods-NN-MLMTH/local, and Monash may recognise it; you'll need to confirm with the Monash future student representatives. Another option that could work is via UniLearn: https://unilearn.net.au/course/senior-mathematics/; same deal with checking about recognisability of course for Monash.
  • From EMC Yr9: What if I don’t know what to become at all and have no clue?
    • Response from Ms. Yucel: Majority of students do not know what they want to become when they're in Year 9. Some figure out eventually, whereas others may not ever find a "passion", but they narrow down on what they're capable of becoming or what they're willing to do. Some people find out while they're studying or while they're working. Everyone's path will be different. There are many things you can do to help yourself learn what may work for you. Reading what comes out on the Newsfeed or the information on the Sirius College Careers website is one thing you can do.
    • Response from Ms. Whitworth: You are asking this question at just the right time. In Term 4 we give all Year 9 students the Morrisby Career Tool which gives you a very indepth report on your strengths. It's a type of career quiz that asks you lots of questions to determine what type of career would suit those strengths. You can find out more about it at: https://www.morrisby.com/ This tool is paid for in your school fees so be patient; we will be doing it in Term 4.
    • Response from Mr. Scott: Be open to opportunity. Start to reflect on what you enjoy & what's important to you. Seek Work Experience (when we can do it again) to 'road test' some of these thoughts. Importantly, don't stress - as Ms. Whitworth spoke about, we've got a massive resource coming your way later this year, which is one of the world's best career planning tools to help you get started (and you can also re-use it for the rest of your life as well). Right now, change the question from "What do I want to become?" to "What problems do I see that I want to help solve?" That'll start you thinking.
  • From MFC Yr7: What age can I find a part-time job?
    • Response from Mr. Mithat: See answer to first question above.
    • Response from Ms. Whitworth: It's never too soon to start looking for a part-time job if that's what you want. Start by letting everyone you know that you are looking for work - many jobs are found through word of mouth. You can do simple delivery jobs like delivering junk mail from 11 years old. To work somewhere like McDonalds, you have to be 14 years and 8 months and you will need a tax file number. You can apply for this now while you look for work. https://www.ato.gov.au/individuals/tax-file-number/apply-for-a-tfn/
    • Response from Mr. Scott: Three ways to find part-time work: 'Networking' (asking who you know if they know of any opportunities), 'Cold Calling' (dropping your resume off to as many potential employers as possible), and 'Research' (looking in the front window of stories at your local shopping entre, using employment websites of large companies, checking our job ad pages like Seek & Indeed). Cold Calling is not as useful as the other 2 ways. As Mr. Mithat said, you can start from 11yrs old, but most companies will start looking when you're 15.
  • From MFC Yr11: How do I become a GP? 
    • Response from Ms. Yucel: Along with following all the other steps required, you have to become a disciplined learner. Most students who get into medicine wake up early, structure their days and sacrifice short term pleasure for long term goals. Discipline is a muscle that gets stronger as you work at it.
    • Response from Mr. Mithat: There are several pathways to become a doctor & in Vic. most direct way is the Monash Uni Medicine - CSP Bonded School Leaver Entry - Bachelor of Medical Science and Doctor of Medicine: 5 years minimum duration - Monash University Clayton campus course code - 2800311251. The prerequisites are listed for Australian Year 12 students as Units 3 and 4: a study score of at least 35 in English (EAL) or at least 30 in English other than EAL; Units 3 and 4: a study score of at least 30 in Chemistry (t.ly/uTYR). More info at https://thefootnotes.com.au/how-to-become-a-doctor/ 
    • Response from Ms. Whitworth: Training to become a GP is a long and competitive journey. If you are good at sciences then that's a start. However just being good at science is not enough. To get into medicine straight from school you will need a very high ATAR, a good score on the UCAT examination, and be successful in a round of interviews. These are very competitive steps and out of thousands of applicants only 235 get a place to study undergraduate Medicine at Monash University each year. There are alternative pathways to Medicine and you should explore these too, for instance, studying Science or Biomedical Science and then doing postgraduate medicine. Obviously this takes longer but it is one of the ways to become a doctor. Once your medical training has finished, you then go on to train to be a GP - more study and placements in surgeries. This will require more learning and more study - as I said, it is a long journey.
    • Response from Mr. Scott: You'll need to study Medicine at uni. In Victoria, Monash, Uni of Melb & Deakin are the 3 universities that offer it. Go to https://www.myhealthcareer.com.au/become-a-general-practitioner/ to have a closer read over the steps - be aware that it takes more than a pretty ATAR at the end of Yr12 (doesn't even need that to be honest...) and a Medical Doctorate to become a GP...
Note: "(sic)" means that even though the spelling/grammar isn't correct, the question is quoted exactly as it was submitted.

  • Yrs 9-12: Pharmacy or Pharmaceutical Science - what's the difference? Many students who are interested in a career relating to Pharmacy have asked this exact question, as they're not sure which option would be best for them. Whilst there are some similarities, there are also some major differences & as such, it is best to do your research into both what the differences are, and which providers offer one/both options. Earlier today, one of the current providers of Pharmacy-related courses provided the Career Dev. Dept. with a very easy-to-understand image to get you started on the differences between Pharma. & Pharma. Sciences; use this to get the ball rolling on which direction you'd like to take:

  • Yrs 9-12: What is 'Allied Health?' You might have come across the term ‘allied health’, or ‘allied health professional’. But who are these people and what do they do? Simply put, allied health practitioners are trained health professionals who are not doctors, dentists or nurses. The allied health sector is extremely diverse; in fact, there's 21 different categories of allied health professional. Some you would know (eg. Physiotherapist, Chiropractor), and some you might not know of (Perfusionist, Music or Art Therapist etc.) What do you need to study to become a podiatrist? Which website has good information about optometrists? What do perfusionists do? You can learn all these and more information about Allied Health careers by clicking here.

Career Development 'Ask the Practitioner': Friday Jun 11 (Posted: 11/06/2021)

  • From EMC Yr9: What subjects would I need to complete in VCE, for me to get into a job regarding in the medical field, for a neurosurgeon?
    • Response from Ms. Yucel: There are many jobs in the medical field: nursing, physiotherapy, audiology, podiatry and more. It helps to undertake science subjects, especially Biology and Chemistry, as well as Psychology, because you're going to need to understand how people think and act. Maths Methods is a requirement for several health fields, like medicine, which you need to undertake in order to become a neurosurgeon.
    • Response from Mr. Mithat: Methods, Chem & Bio & do well in English to boost your ATAR & check out thefootnotes.com.au/how-to-become-a-doctor/
    • Response from Ms. Whitworth: A neurosurgeon is a field of medicine so you would need to gain a medical degree at university to begin this career. Getting into medicine is very competitive and you need to be an excellent student in English, Chemistry and preferably Math Methods. However there are several pathways to medicine, but all require high performance in your studies.
    • Response from Mr. Scott: Work backwards. What qualifications do you need to enter a neurosurgery study? Now, what qualifications do you need to enter that? Now, what qualifications do you need to enter that? etc. You'll eventually get down to what you need to enter your first university course (a Bachelor of ...), and for that, you'll need to know your VCE prerequisites. For entry in 2025 (ie. Yr9 now), you'll know them in July(ish) next year, but you can use the 2023 prereq. list as a guide; 2024's list (another guide only for you) will be out in July(ish) this year. They're under 'Senior School' on siriuscollegecareers.com ('VTAC - Info for Year 10').
  • From EMC Yr9: Im currently interested in law and i would love to study it at uni but im not sure what subjects require it (sic)​​​​​​
    • Response from Ms. Yucel: Only English. It would be good to take Legal Studies as well, but it's not required.
    • Response from Ms. Whitworth: Being good at English is the main requirement. To study Law, English at a high standard is required because you have to do a lot of reading and you need to be able to present an argument in a well structured way. Of course an interest in Legal Studies would probably help too.
    • Response from Mr. Scott: Generally speaking, Law only requires English. Go to vtac.edu.au, and use the 'CourseSearch' tool to look for Law degrees. Look for the 'prerequisite' subjects to see exactly what school subjects you need - each course has their own rules, so don't assume 1 course's subjects = all course's subjects.
  • From EMC Yr8: When and how should I/can I find a job, (like at McDonalds, etc.) as a part-time thing?
    • Response from Mr. Mithat: You can work once you are 11 years old - Lot of jobs are found via people we know so let people know you are looking and a lot of them are online like seek.com is a good site - also check out https://www.youthcentral.vic.gov.au/jobs-and-careers/your-rights-at-work/employment-rights-for-under-15s
    • Response from Ms. Whitworth: It's never too soon to start looking for a part-time job if that's what you want. Start by letting everyone you know that you are looking for work - many jobs are found through word of mouth. You can do simple delivery jobs like delivering junk mail from 11 years old. To work somewhere like McDonalds, you have to be 14 years and 8 months and you will need a tax file number. You can apply for this now while you look for work. https://www.ato.gov.au/individuals/tax-file-number/apply-for-a-tfn/
    • Response from Mr. Scott: Three ways to find part-time work: 'Networking' (asking who you know if they know of any opportunities), 'Cold Calling' (dropping your resume off to as many potential employers as possible), and 'Research' (looking in the front window of stories at your local shopping centre, using employment websites of large companies, checking out job ad pages like Seek & Indeed). Cold Calling is not as useful as the other 2 ways. As Mr. Mithat said, you can start from 11yrs old, but most companies will start looking when you're 15.
  • From EMC Yr7: As a year 7, when you go to university or collage, do your grades matter, or affect you? (sic)
    • Response from Ms. Yucel: Your learning matters for your future. Grades are a partial reflection of that. If you do your best to learn well from Year 7 onwards, it's easier to learn in Years 8-12 than if you didn't care about your learning in Year 7 and tried to catch up later on. Your grades matter if you're aiming for a university course that requires an ATAR. Some courses require higher ATARs than others.
    • Response from Ms. Whitworth: If you are asking if your Year 7 grades matter when you go to university or college, no, not really. But at some point you are going to have to build on that foundational knowledge from earlier in your education so that you have a level of understanding ready to tackle your studies at university or college. These institutions are places of study, the same as school - you still have to work hard but by then you have chosen an area of study that you are interested in and want to learn more about. While at university you still have to pass subjects to get your qualification. There is no shortcut to gaining qualifications - it requires hard work and dedication.
    • Response from Mr. Scott: Without the building blocks of Year 7, then Year 8, then Year 9 etc. (and we're talking about developing a love of learning, an ability to think for yourself etc.), anything university-related after school is out of the question. They won't look at those grades when you apply in Year 12, but if you're thinking you'll only worry about taking school seriously in the 'pointy end' years, you need to strongly reconsider your priorities.
  • From EMC Yr7: Do I need to prepare for anything to become a lawyer from now?
    • Response from Ms. Yucel: Read. Read. Keep reading. Lawyers do a lot of reading. They need to be able to understand a lot of information in a short amount of time, so develop your love of reading and your desire to understand what you read. Read things you like, as well as things you don't enjoy. Read widely: novels, manuals, articles, textbooks, advertisements, maths problems, blog posts, lists and more. If you know another language, read things in that other language as well.
    • Response from Ms. Whitworth: As a Year 7 student you should start to learn more about yourself, as well as how best you learn and study. Get into good study habits because studying Law will require a lot of reading and researching. Another good idea would be to join the debating team at school, find your voice and demonstrate that you can make a strong argument.
    • Response from Mr. Scott: Learn to think for yourself. Working in a law-based job (lawyer or otherwise) demand that you have the ability to have an opinion & back it up with evidence/proof. This is simply not possible if you can't think for yourself. Subjects like English, Humanities etc. are the ones that are most connected with this idea, but every subject needs you to not just do what the teacher suggests, but what you think is right. And as has also been said, read, read, read.
Note: "(sic)" means that even though the spelling/grammar isn't correct, the question is quoted exactly as it was submitted.

  • Yrs 7-12: Alumni stories - An 2012 Eastmeadows graduate who finished a degree in mechanical engineering is now working as an acoustic engineer. Here's what she shared:

    Any engineer can head into it. I was doing mechanical engineering and I found an internship in acoustic engineering in Germany. That was the first time I was introduced to the field.

    Acoustic engineering is mainly based in Germany. Germany is great because they have many opportunities especially in the engineering field. I do believe that doing an internship in another country helps develop your career and personal skills. I also believe it adds that extra impact you need on your resume to make you stand out. Either way it’s the experience you get that counts in the end and having good referee at each instance. Even though it’s not compulsory anymore to do internship during university, it’s definitely needed to land you a job.

    They have no specific university course for acoustic engineering in Melbourne. They have online courses and clubs you can join once you've had some experience. They have different fields. One is built environment (for buildings) and the other for vehicles. There doesn’t seem to be many opportunities in vehicle sector here in Australia. You do have a few in built environment. I work in the built environment sector with a consulting firm. My usual work is setting up equipment, measure noise during the day, evening and night, and write reports to clients about results.
  • Yrs 10-12: Business & Economics at Australia National University - ANU College of Business and Economics (CBE) offer a wide range of business, economics and commerce degrees and majors.

  • Yrs 9-12: How to become an Urban Planner - Design functional and enjoyable areas to live, work, and play. Urban Planners develop the plans and programs to make the best use of land. Their planning skills are needed to develop infrastructure and services to create communities, accommodate growth, or revitalise physical facilities in towns, cities, counties, and metropolitan areas. Regional planners work outside these areas. If you are logical, innovative and great at solving problems, becoming an Urban Planner could be a rewarding profession to consider. To learn more about this career option (which is growing...), click here.
  • Yrs 10-12: Federation University’s Bachelor of Education Studies - The Bachelor of Education Studies is a 3yr generalist degree that prepares students for work in Learning and Education and discover more about the education system. This degree will qualify students to work in many roles including as an Education Officer developing programs for a wide range of industries or as an Education Support Officer (Integration Aide) working to support students within a school setting.

Career Development 'Ask the Practitioner': Friday Jun 4 (Posted: 04/06/2021)

  • From EMC Yr8: What Electives Do I Choose If I Am Aiming To Become A Doctor? (sic)
    • Response from Ms. Yucel: Generally science ones, but bear in mind you learn a lot from all electives. Doctors are people who use a wide range of skills that can be gained from things beyond sciences. They can learn endurance from sports, problem solving in IT, creativity in the arts, all skills which they will use in the profession.
    • Response from Mr. Mithat: Science related ones would be your best bet. For the Monash University - Bachelor of Medical Science and Doctor of Medicine prerequisites are listed as Units 3 and 4: a study score of at least 35 in English (EAL) or at least 30 in English other than EAL; Units 3 and 4: a study score of at least 30 in Chemistry. More info at t.ly/8KeN
    • Response from Ms. Whitworth: Electives are subjects of choice in high school. These are not requirements or prerequisites to study medicine. Choose things you enjoy or that you are good at. The subjects you need to study at VCE are more important for university entrance, as previously said.
    • Response from Mr. Scott: A Doctor of what? It's just a qualification, not a job title...
  • From EMC Yr10: The best way (defined as respectable and fast) to get into Medicine?​​​​​​
    • Response from Ms. Yucel: Becoming a medical practitioner is a long process. On top of what the other Career Practitioners have written, I want to add this: you never stop studying as a doctor. You have to keep up with all the changes and developments in the field of medicine. While you have to do that in most fields you work in, it's most regulated and required in the field of medicine. So while you may undertake the "fast" ways to get into medicine, it takes consistent effort and time to be able to stay in medicine.
    • Response from Mr. Mithat: There is no "respectable" way to get into medicine as the field is so highly regulated that it is almost impossible to "fake" or "shortCUT" your way into it. So all ways are ok. The reason that there are so many ways is not because people fail in one way, and they try another - it is because people don't realise that they want to be a doctor until the different stages of their life just like they realise that they DON'T WANT TO BE A DOCTOR AS WELL SOMETIMES; see this well written article for more info: https://thefootnotes.com.au/how-to-become-a-doctor/
    • Response from Ms. Whitworth: All pathways to medicine are respectable - and it is always a long journey as well as requiring a lot of hard work. The initial degree is five years if you go straight from school but this is very competitive and there are many more years of training after that as you start to specialise, be that General Practice or a specific area of medicine. And to keep your knowledge up to date you have to continually keep learning and studying. Ask yourself if you enjoy studying and are prepared to keep studying throughout your working life in order to succeed in this field.
    • Response from Mr. Scott: Depends on what you see as "respectable" & - that's not for us to judge. "Fast" right now is Monash straight from the end of Year 12 - 5 years to complete formal training (but a lot of years after that of on-the-job training, Monash or not). Be aware for that course, 5000ish apply for approx. 230 places each year.
  • From KBC Yr11: What are the different levels of Uni?
    • Response from Ms. Yucel: Not sure what you mean by different levels of uni, but there are different levels of education you can complete. Check out the Australian Qualification Framework Levels for more information: https://www.siriuscollegecareers.com/aqf-levels.
    • Response from Ms. Whitworth: You usually enter university by starting an undergraduate degree or a Bachelor degree. However, many universities offer qualifications that are below this level as pathways. These range from certificates to diplomas, as well as Associate Degrees. After an undergraduate degree you can go on to postgraduate study right up to a PhD.
    • Response from Mr. Scott: Furthering what Ms. Yucel & Ms. Whitworth have said, you can group university courses into 2 groups: "Undergraduate" & "Postgraduate" (sometimes just called "Graduate"). Anything at or below Level 7 on the AQF is "undergraduate" (see the link Ms. Yucel suggests). Some unis only offer Level 7, some will go down to Level 5, some will go down even further. You must have a Level 7 qualification to be allowed to enter anything from Levels 8-10, which is "postgraduate".
  • From EMC Yr7: Which subjects should I study to become a doctor (GP)?
    • Response from Ms. Yucel: In terms of VCE subjects, Methods and Chemistry. In terms of subject before VCE, you could focus on electives that give you a wide range of skills. Doctors aren't just good at science, after all. They have to understand how to work with other people, how to work on projects, how to take care of their mental health, among many others. You can learn these in various subjects.
    • Response from Mr. Mithat: Methods, Chem & Bio & do well in English to boost your ATAR & check out https://thefootnotes.com.au/how-to-become-a-doctor/
    • Response from Ms. Whitworth: The subjects already mentioned are requirements to becoming a doctor, but studying them alone will not necessarily get you a place at university to study medicine. It is very competitive and there are other entry requirements, for example and interview process and an external exam (the UCAT or the GAMSAT). There are different pathways to becoming a medical doctor and it is worth exploring the different ways. You have time to do this but for now work hard and be the best you can be in the subjects you enjoy.
    • Response from Mr. Scott: You have 6yrs at school to figure out if that's the direction you want to take yourself, then at least 3 years at university before even worrying about entering a doctorate-level course. Slow down & enjoy school, and figure out over time what works best for you. Don't fall into the trap of being attracted to a career option because of what it is - work out first what works for you, and go from there. The subjects you choose will then answer themselves.
  • From KBC Yr8: How can you decide what career to choose in the future? Should this decision be based on skills or interest?
    • Response from Ms. Yucel: Both and more. Some people decide on what they want to do based on what they think the world needs. Sometimes, you can combine skills and interest and mission. Your first job might utilise your skills more, whereas your second may utillise your interests more.
    • Response from Mr. Mithat: You are not the first to be stuck for answers and the science of 'Career Development' has some answers in the shape of fun Quizzes and questionnaires. Go onto our website www.siriuscollegecareers.com & do the fun careers quizzes in the student section as these and similar quizzes will begin your process of identifying the particular special bend of your mind that makes you special at some things compared to others. This is a good start to any career journey...
    • Response from Ms. Whitworth: Some people seem to know exactly what they want to do in life, others are overwhelmed by the variety of careers available. Some fall into a career and others actively seek one out. At Year 8 you should be noticing what is out there, asking questions about jobs you think sound interesting, and starting to understand yourself a bit better. What are you interested in, what are you good at (both in school and out of school)? Explore these interests and dig a bit deeper to see whether or not they could lead to a career. Talk to people who work in the areas that interest you. Career choices will become a little clearer as you start to research and we are here to guide you in that research.
    • Response from Mr. Scott: Both. You need to enjoy what you are doing day-to-day, and you're not going to be able to do that if you don't have the skills for it! Know yourself first & foremost - your strengths, your skills, your values etc. We'll do more about the 'world of work' part in Year 9 onwards.
Note: "(sic)" means that even though the spelling/grammar isn't correct, the writing is quoted exactly as it was submitted.

  • Yrs 10-12: Speech Therapy & Occupational Therapy Course Guide - Over the next few weeks, we'll be distributing a series of course guides for specific groupings of courses. These guides will assist domestic students and their families in researching course options across a number of states, including Victoria.

  • Yrs 7-12: Does a course with a high ATAR guarantee better job prospects? In short, not always. Remember, the ATAR is just supply & demand to get in, nothing else, and certainly nothing to do with exiting the course. The cold hard truth is, when looking at graduate outcomes, such as employment rate or a high starting salary, the courses with high ATAR requirements don’t necessarily deliver the best outcomes. Numbers and cut-off scores aren’t the be-all and end-all when it comes to what happens after you graduate - it's what you do with the qualification & your passion for your area of study that counts faaaaar more.

  • Yrs 9-12: 4 tips to help get smart about money - By the time you leave high school and often before, it’s important to learn how to manage your money and make decisions that make financial sense for your situation. If you can budget, manage your money, make wise decisions about your spending and saving habits, then you’re well on your way to being financially literate. Having these skills are a huge advantage all through life and could help to prevent you falling into masses of debt.

Career Development 'Ask the Practitioner': Friday May 28 (Posted: 28/05/2021)

Please stay home & stay safe through our hopefully short 'circuit-breaker' lockdown.

  • From EMC Yr12: Is it wrong to stick with a career you know you don't like, only because you don't know what you do like?
    • Response from Ms. Yucel: You may not last long in a career you do not like and potentially end up wasting time and money as well. It's best to look for something that you either may like or are capable of doing. You don't have to love your career, but you should not dread it either. There are things you can do now to start looking for careers that you may end up liking.
    • Response from Mr. Mithat: It is ok to be confused - most people are. So, Career Development science has some tools to help people figure out their special talents & intellectually strong points to help you craft a career suitable to your special powers & these are called career quizzes. The more you do, the better idea you will have - log into your student account at www.siriuscollegecareers.com and do some there as a start; come see us as well about the best one called 'Morrisby' which you will never be the same after doing it.
    • Response from Ms. Whitworth: I don't think you should stick with a career you don't like - that makes no sense. However, you might have to stay in a particular job (to earn money) while you sort out what you really want to do. Determining that is not that hard when you start to think about what you love doing, your strengths, and what your values are. If this sounds a bit daunting you can always start by eliminating the types of work that you would definitely not want to do and then see what is left. There are many tools (career quizzes) that will show you your strengths and preferences - start with the one on JobOutlook https://joboutlook.gov.au/career-tools/career-quiz. There is another one on Explore Careers https://explorecareers.com.au/career-quiz/, and of course the Morrisby Online tool is the one we promote at school - click here for Morrisby Online.
    • Response from Mr. Scott: It's all good to not know what you want to do 'in the future', but it's not good to not doing anything about trying to figure it out. How about changing the question from "what job should I be doing?" to "what problem/s can I help solve?" That's going to spark your interests & values, and from there see what 'job' options help to solve those problems. Short-term, you'll need to take everything in your life into account when deciding to stick with a career trajectory you're not a fan of (Living out of home? Having a 'life'? Paying for a car? etc.). If you can move on quickly all factors considered, go for it. Otherwise, work on your ideal situation in the background.
  • From Yr9 (no campus): do (sic) ALL doctors get paid well (GP)?
    • Response from Ms. Yucel: It depends on your definition of "well". Some doctors are paid more, especially if they're worked longer and specialised in particular areas.
    • Response from Ms. Whitworth: A GP is not the most well paid doctor. Those who have trained to become a doctor of medicine can go on to earn very high salaries depending on their specialisation. Wealth is not necessarily the privilege of those who have a high paying salary. You can be wealthy on an average salary if you use your money wisely and save for the future.
    • Response from Mr. Scott: Given you've said "GP", that helps to know what 'doctor' you're talking about, so thank you. The most accurate information on average pay for a GP in Australia can be found at https://joboutlook.gov.au/occupations/general-practitioners-and-resident-medical-officers?occupationCode=2531; whether that's being "paid well" is up to you.
  • From Yr9 (no campus): what (sic) exactly happens at uni?
    • Response from Ms. Yucel: Just like high school, you take classes and do assignments or projects. That's the bare minimum you have to do in order to get a university degree. However, most uni students also do a lot after class, such as taking responsibility in student clubs, working part-time, getting internships at companies, so they can build up their skills.
    • Response from Mr. Mithat: 1 of the best ways to know things is how different they are to what you already know; So how it is different to high school is that there are about 4 to 5 classes a week called 'Lectures" where a professor lectures students on a subject you chose to enrol in. You don't have to go (but you should!) so only those who want to go & want to learn attend and learn. The others just fall behind & drop out of uni. You do your study & work on your own timetable, so time management is a must if you want to graduate. Whenever you get stuck, the uni also runs subject tutorials where smaller groups of students who want to study, gather & study together with a tutor on that subject, so they can learn from each other & overcome those points they were stuck on. So university is a place for people who really want to learn something & they need to show that they have learned it via tests & projects etc. to graduate. Now you can't do this unless you are passionate about something so that's why the Career Dev. Dept. is always talking about your passion and your drive, so you don't have to fake it when you get to university; you are passionate about something or issue, and you want to learn it more than others, so you go to uni and study it & graduate & become 1 of the best in that field hopefully...
    • Response from Mr. Scott: Have a read of the following 2 articles to help you with this. First, "What my first year of uni was really like" from Year 13 - hear it from someone who has just been through it. https://year13.com.au/articles/first-year-uni-really-like. Second, "An insider's guide to life at uni" from the Good Universities Guide: https://www.gooduniversitiesguide.com.au/education-blogs/student-life/an-insider-s-guide-to-life-at-uni. Keep in mind that everyone at uni (well, hopefully everyone) is there because they want to be, so there's no real space for stupidity or nonsense - you'll stand out like a sore thumb.
  • From EMC Yr8: What Do I Need To Know To Become A Doctor? (At a Medical Centre)
    • Response from Ms. Yucel: The Career Dev. offices on all campuses have a book called "What it takes to be a doctor". You could go to the Career Dev. office during recess and lunch to read that book. To become a doctor, you'll need top level academic capability and scores, a love of reading and studying, and great motivation to undertake the journey to becoming and being a doctor. There's more to this topic, so feel free to chat with a Career Development Practitioner on your campus to learn more.
    • Response from Mr. Mithat: There are several pathways to become a doctor & in Vic. one of the most direct ways is the Monash Uni Medicine - CSP Bonded School Leaver Entry - Bachelor of Medical Science and Doctor of Medicine: 5 years minimum duration - Monash University Clayton campus course code - 2800311251 - & the prerequisites are listed for Australian Year 12 students as Units 3 and 4: a study score of at least 35 in English (EAL) or at least 30 in English other than EAL; Units 3 and 4: a study score of at least 30 in Chemistry (t.ly/uTYR). More info at https://thefootnotes.com.au/how-to-become-a-doctor/.
    • Response from Ms. Whitworth: In addition to the answers already given, try to talk to a doctor about their career journey. Maybe you could chat with your local GP. There are many online resources where you can find out about this profession, starting with our own Career Development website under the 'For Students' tab. Click on 'Career Targets' and go look under the Health target. Here you will find many types of medical doctor that you can research. https://www.siriuscollegecareers.com/career-targets/16
  • From EMC Yr11: How does the GAT work? Does it contribute to our study score? Or the 3 and 4 subjects were doing in year 11? Also how hard do you recommend us to study for it?
    • Response from Mr. Scott: I'll take this one, as I have years of experience as a VCE Coordinator in a previous school. The short answer is, it might contribute, or it might not contribute. It all depends on what happens later in the year (ie. Your Units 3/4 exams). It only applies to the Units 3/4 exams you're going to sit in the year you sit the GAT (ie. This year's GAT for this year's subjects; next year's GAT for next year's subjects).
      The best way that I recommend you think about it, is that it's your 'insurance policy': should something happen later this year that legitimately prevents you from attending your Units 3/4 exams (or doing as well in them as you should be able to), the GAT will be used (amongst other numbers & grades) to create a Study Score for you. Unis could also call on it (one or both) as a way to determine who gets a spot in a course, if all other measures (ATAR, Study Scores etc.) are the same.
      Based on that (and the fact that you just don't know what could happen to you in Oct/Nov) - and I can't emphasise this enough - you'd be seriously shortsighted/foolish/immature to not take it as seriously as any other assessment. Revise over previous GATs to 'study' (it's not a 'normal' exam to study for, in that you have subjects to revise content from); click here to access them.

  • Yrs 10-12: Nursing & Midwifery Course Guide - Over the next few weeks, we'll be distributing a series of course guides for specific groupings of courses. These guides will assist domestic students and their families in researching course options across a number of states, including Victoria.

  • Yrs 9-12: Alumni stories - Ms. Yucel recently chatted with a 2014 MFC alum who finished construction management at RMIT and is working in the field. Here's what he said:
    - Commercial construction is still booming but there’s a lot of people who are applying for the same position.
    - The industry itself is very competitive and extremely difficult to find employment and that’s naturally because most employers request experience for graduates.
    - If I were to give any advice it would be to start an internship early during studies which would put those ahead of the pack. Internships are much easier to find and that should kickstart their careers moving forward.
    - Majority of the tier 1 companies (who do the biggest projects) and  tier 2 companies now are growing within and want to train their staff from very early.
    - Starting 2-3 days a week during studies then moving onto full time is what usually happens. 
    If anyone wants to chat further with this graduate of Sirius College about Construction Management, he's happy to do so - you just need to let your Career Development Practitioner/s know!
  • Yrs 10-12: Superannuation program ‘Super Aware’ - Superannuation (aka super) is something that often feels like a ‘future-you’ problem. Like, about-to-retire-to-a-small-coastal-town future-you.

Oh, and there's $1,000 on offer to a student who completes the 4 modules listed below:
    The modules are:
    1. What’s the 411 on super
    2. Caring about your super
    3. Taking control of your super
    4. Finding the right super for you
    The earlier you start, the more money you'll have to live off when you've finished working. So, get started on learning about what you'll need to retire comfortably by clicking here.
