  4. 4. Students transitioning from school to work A practical idea A disruptive idea My favourite idea School Careers Adviser to develop and run program for senior high school students on finding the right job & what’s required - tailored to the current student needs. This program would include information on: •  students identifying their strengths and what they enjoy and the different professions this may relate to •  different professions - degree and non-degree •  resume writing •  putting together an application letter •  job interviews & what to expect & what would be expected from candidate (running mock interviews) •  work experience opportunities •  contact names and numbers for external support •  parental support and information. Develop an app that could be downloaded to any electronic device that students, parents and teachers could use to find information on professions and applying for a job. It would include pertinent information on a large variety of professions including work duties and expectations, locations, education requirements, pay ranges, etc, Also would include support information on applying for jobs – job applications, writing a resume, what to expect at an interview and what would be required from the candidate.. The information would be aimed at school leavers and would be useful and practical. Large organisations required to provide and fund meaningful work experience programs for ‘x’ number of students per year. The program would enable students to learn about different professions and experience a particular role and also build their knowledge of workplaces and what it would be like to work in a particular profession. It would also help the student to understand what is expected of an employee and provide insight for the student on the job role.
