Careers News


SKC Careers has a NEW website full of amazing information to help students and parents navigate the minefield of resources, terminology and programs available for students of all ages.  Please go to SKC Careers and familiarise yourself with the tabs and navigation of the website.  In particular there is a For Parents tab with useful links including our complete Contact Details and a For Students tab in which students will be able to make a secure account for use in their own pathway research.

 

This week we have spent time with our new 2017 Year 12 students.  It has been pleasing to see that most students are taking a serious approach to their VCE studies and committed to getting that head start with their individual subjects.  We have introduced all Year 11s to the new Careers Website and they have been given personal accounts in which to keep a record of their individual research over the next 12 months.  The research process should be well under way and we have encouraged students to take ownership of the important decisions ahead. 

 

Students have been asked to make an appointment with a Careers Practitioner early in Term 1 to discuss their initial ideas about what they would like to do in 2018.  Experience shows that students who methodically research pathways early in Year 12 are able to take up the myriad of information opportunities relevant to their particular interests and, invariably, find the decision making time in Term 3, and then December, a lot easier.  Please encourage your sons to research courses, attend information sessions, career expos and lunch time speaker sessions provided at school throughout the Year.

 

We wish all the current Year 12s the best of luck for December 12 and remind students that the bookings for Change of Preference Appointments during the week December 12 to 15 will be open from December 5.  A representative from Monash University will be here on Tuesday December 13 from 10pm to 12pm for additional advice pertaining directly to Monash.  Appointments will be necessary and can also be booked through the online booking portal.

 

Any current Year 10 or 11 students who would like a further discussion about subject selections are welcome to email us with queries or to make an appointment in the first week of December.

 

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year from the Careers Department to all St Kevin’s families.

Last week I had the privilege to attend a full day of Professional Development run by the Hotel School, Melbourne.  Listening to the amazing careers of the current men and women in the positions of General Manager, Crown Promenade, General Manager, Melbourne Marriott, General Manager, Inter Continental Melbourne and the Director of Human Resources at the Grand Hyatt gave me tremendous insight into the limitless opportunities to build careers with flexibility, growth and opportunities for promotion.  The tourism and hospitality industry in Australia is one of the main employment growth industries of the future.  Students and parents are encouraged to think about exploring this industry in which each hotel forms a microcosm of society reflecting opportunities in a myriad of careers including lawyers, finance managers, accountants, builders, chefs, concierge, marketers, advertisers, designers and so much more.

 

This week a group of Year 12 students took advantage of the Interview Skills Role Play Workshop run by Mr James Lynch at the College.  We provide this opportunity for any students who have interviews for courses in creative fields, Medicine, Physiotherapy, general part time or full time employment opportunities in order to ensure they are fully prepared.  Students enjoyed the session and all highly praised the value of the experience.  This opportunity will be available for Year 12 students in both June and November, 2017.

 

A final reminder that no new Work Experience applications will be processed from next week on as the deadline for completing the safe@work testing is tomorrow, Friday 18th November.

Useful Tips for Successful Interviews

 

Many candidates lose the job in the first minute of the interview by not thinking carefully about their initial impact.  John Lees shares his expert interview tips.

1      Don’t waste the opening moments

Many candidates lose the job in the first minute of the interview by not thinking carefully about their initial impact.  Interviewers make a quick initial decision about your personality from the moment you arrive, based on how you look and sound.  Dress as if you already work there and you’ve just been promoted.  Make those initial seconds relaxed and upbeat as you can, even if you’re just talking about your journey.  

 

2     Don’t over-deliver

Most candidates say too much.  Interviewers are not that interested, and will usually accept a short, positive answer and move on.  Practise compressing your evidence into good short stories no more than 3 minutes long setting out what problem you were handling, what you did, how you did it, and what the result was.

 

3     Don’t act like a stranger

Leave your coat, umbrella and bag in reception.  Just take in a slim folder into the interview room containing the documents you need, and you will look like an employee rather than a visitor.

 

4      Don’t try to wing difficult questions

Don’t duck predictable questions about your know-how and skill level – think carefully about good examples.  Equally predictable questions cover things like strengths (talk about qualities that match the job) and weaknesses (talk about skills you are improving, and make it clear that you’re a fast learner).

 

John Lees has written a wide range of careers books.  His 2013 titles are Just The Job! , his first systematic guide to job searching, and Knockout CV, a comprehensive guide to writing a winning CV.


Year 10 students are currently having short interviews to discuss VCE subject selection in light of their second semester studies.  At these interviews students have the opportunity to change selection if they feel it is necessary and advice will be provided by the Leadership Team, Heads of House or Careers Practitioners as to the suitability of selected programs.  Parents of Year 10 students are advised to have a brief discussion with their sons about their selections prior to the meeting and, again, afterwards.

 

To all Year 12 Parents, one final reminder about Tax File Numbers – students will be unable able to enrol for a tertiary course in 2016 if they do not have a Tax File Number.  Application forms are NO LONGER available from the Careers Office but should be completed online after which students are required to make an appointment with the Post Office somewhat like a passport interview.  Please ensure your Year 12 student has done this prior to leaving for Schoolies Week or the receipt of his Tax File Number prior to Christmas may be jeopardised.

 

Year 11 students who have completed a 3/4 subject this year will need to access their VCE results via SMS.  Instructions about how to arrange for this to occur have been emailed to all Year 11 students and are also available from the SKC Careers website by clicking here.  Students will need their VCAA Number which is available from Mrs White if they do not know it.  Registration opens on Monday 7th December and closes at midnight on Sunday 11thDecember.

It has been a pleasure touching base with many of the Year 10 students to finalise their VCE subject selections.  There is still a small opportunity to change subjects following examination results if necessary.  There will be some appointments available following the examinations should students and families require a further conversation about final subject choices.  Please book online.  Year 10 and 11 students are also advised that Friday November 25 is the last day for submission of Work Experience Arrangement Forms for the December/January period.  Students are advised Work Experience Placements can only be done during the weeks when the College office is open (until Wednesday 16th December & from Monday January 9th).  All safe@work testing must be completed by Friday November 18 at the latest to ensure the processing of forms in time.

 

During Headstart Week each Year 11 study group will have one period with us in Careers during which we will outline the expectations placed on the boys as Year 12 students, the Careers Program for the year ahead and the importance of commencing the year well prepared and ready to put in their very best efforts.  All Year 12 students will be asked to make an appointment to see a Careers Practitioner in Term 1, 2017.  It is important to start researching pathways for 2018 as early as possible to make the decision making in Terms 3 and 4, which comes all too quickly, considerably easier.  To start them thinking, we are introducing students to a new online Careers Website, associated tools and exercises which we hope they will take advantage of.  We are looking forward to spending time with the “new” Year 12s.


Accessing VCE Results via SMS

Students must pre-register if they wish to receive their results by text message.  To pre-register students will need to send a message to 19 787 888 with their VCE student number (just the eight-digit number, not including the letter on the end) then a space and then their PIN (4 digits). 

 

Year 12 students:     The PIN is the first four digits of their date of birth e.g. 21
                   November = 2111

(unless students changed their PIN online as was recommended)

 

This SMS will cost $1.10 max (incl. GST).  Students must send this message from the mobile number they want the results delivered to. 

 

Registrations opened at 9am on Monday 7 November, and will close at 12 midnight on Sunday 11 December and the results and ATAR will then be sent to the registered mobile number at approximately 7am Monday 12 December 2016. 

 

Students who will be overseas as this time should NOT register to have their results sent by SMS, but rather access them on the internet.

 

Students encountering problems should please contact the helpline on 1800 501 083. Instructions on registering for SMS are also available on the VTAC website at VTAC SMS  

Year 12 students who have paid their VTAC fees will receive a copy of their ATAR statement through the post commencing Tuesday 13 December 2016.

Year 11 and 12 students considering a career in medicine, nursing, dentistry or midwifery might like to take up an opportunity to participate in a short-term healthcare work experience placement overseas.  Gap Medics is based in the UK, but its programs are open to students from all around the world. 

So, what does a placement involve?  During weekdays, students shadow highly skilled doctors in their day-to-day work on a fully-supervised hospital placement.  Students also benefit from clinical teaching on their placement.  Gap Medics has an agreement with each of the hospitals which the students then sign to ensure punctuality, appropriate dress, respectful behaviour at all times and confidentiality.  The hospitals and the doctors/mentors are paid with approximately 10% of the student cost going directly to the hospital to be used for overall improvement and benefit of their facilities and programs.

Gap Medics owns houses in all the destinations; the houses have 24-hour security with walled gardens and a full time staff team in every destination too.  There is a night time manager on duty every evening.  Students stay in the Gap Medics homes and food, pick up and transfers are all inclusive. 

Approximately 90 % of current participating students are Year 11 and 12 students, with the remaining 10% being university students.

Careers News


It is pleasing to see a number of Year 11 students booking Careers Appointments to discuss subject selection.  Those who are strong academically are reminded of the opportunity to enrol in a University Extension subject.  In the past, students have taken University Maths (offered at St Kevin’s), Accounting (either at the University of Melbourne or Monash), and Biology to name a few.  Deakin, Swinburne, La Trobe and RMIT all offer Extension Subjects also.  Please go to the SKC Careers VCE Extension Studies Section, or the University websites for relevant information then come up to the Careers Department to discuss.  Applications must be submitted to Mr Jones, Director of Studies.

 

We have also been busy with some past students who have chosen to return to the College to seek advice about changing courses/pathways.  It is wonderful to have this ongoing contact with these young men who we can advise about their options and the process of application.  More than this, though, we can learn from them about what they have and have not enjoyed, first-hand experience of Universities and TAFEs, campuses, support and the general tertiary landscape.  This proves beneficial for discussions with current students, strengthening our knowledge and helping us to counsel wisely. 

 

Year 12 students are advised that the Change of Preference area in their VTAC user accounts will close on 8 November at 4pm.  This will remain closed until November 21 when the VCE examinations have concluded.  Students are advised not to think about their preferences during the examination period.

 

Year 12 students are also reminded that there is an Interview Skills Workshop being held on Wednesday November 16 from 10am till 11:30am.  Any students who may have an interview as selection criteria for courses on their preference list, or who are intending on applying for part time jobs are encouraged to attend.  Registration is essential, either in person at the Careers Department or via email to Mrs White.

As we farewell the Year 12 students knowing that they are well prepared to succeed in the forthcoming VCE examinations, we can reflect on their journey and how they have matured since their early secondary years.  Many I have spoken with this week cannot believe how quickly the time has passed as they prepare to enter the adult world and a world outside St Kevin’s College.  The transitions to tertiary study, full time or part time employment, travel, apprenticeships, College or professional sporting teams will each bring much change to the lives of our young men. 

 

From the Careers Department we wish them well and hope they know that we are available for them at any time should they require help making pathway decisions be they once VCE results are received in December, the receipt of their offer in January, twelve months, two or even ten years down the track.  It is always a pleasure to welcome past students back to the College, reflect on their journeys and endeavour to help them make new and exciting (but sometimes scary) decisions to move forward.

 

Parents and students have received information about the availability of the Careers Practitioners during December and January.  The SKC Careers and Change of Preference Websites will continually be updated with additional information during this period.  The SKC Careers Facebook page and the SKC Portal will also have notifications of importance.  Change of Preference appointments may be booked from December 5th.

Please do not hesitate to come and see us if you would like to ensure you have made choices which will keep options open and suit your strengths, interests and personality.

What If I Do Not Get A High Enough ATAR To Get Into My Desired Course?

Many pathways and programs exist to assist in getting to where you want to go.  Some suggestions:

·         Complete a Diploma of Tertiary Studies at Monash University in either business, education or nursing (ATAR 50+) OR a Diploma of Higher Education (ATAR 65+); Indigenous pathways - See: www.study.monash/how-to-apply/indigenous-student-applications

·         Complete a course at Monash College in Art & design, Arts (Human Behaviour or Psychology streams), Business or Commerce, Engineering or Science; search Courses on VTAC website

·         Complete a course at Deakin College in Commerce, Computing, Engineering, Health Sciences, Management, Media and Communication or Science

·         Complete a Diploma at La Trobe Melbourne in Biosciences, Business, Engineering, Health Sciences, IT or Mass Media Communications

·         Complete a Tertiary Preparation Course at RMIT in engineering or science

·         Consider studying a related university course with a lower ATAR; if you do well you MAY be able to transfer to your desired course later

·         Start with a VET (TAFE) course in a related field; two years of VET often equals one at university

·         Complete a Tertiary Studies Diploma at Melbourne Polytechnic (Preston)

·         Complete a Certificate IV in Liberal Arts – a pathway into a range of degrees. Swinburne and Victoria Universities have this Certificate

·         Consider a country/rural campus. ATARs are often lower, usually due to lower demand; most have accommodation (apply ASAP)

·         For nursing consider first completing Division 2 at TAFE or a private provider- eg. Box Hill, Chisholm, Federation, Goulburn Ovens, Holmesglen, RMIT or Swinburne

·         ACU has certificate/diploma courses that can lead to degrees (through ACUcom) See:

       http://www.acu.edu.au/courses/2014/other_courses/vocational_education_training_vet/

·         Complete a Victoria University Foundations@VU alternative entry to higher education and diploma studies course - a 13 week course designed to build academic skills needed for tertiary study. See: www.vu.edu.au/courses/foundations-at-vu-jyac

ACUcom courses are suited to students who –

 

ü  Want a TAFE level qualification

ü  Do not get the required ATAR to go straight into their chosen bachelor degree

ü  Want to use the TAFE to university pathway to a bachelor degree

ü  Want to try an area of study but are not sure they want to commit to a 3-year course

 

Some of the pathway courses ACUcom offers domestic school leavers include:

 

Diploma of Early Childhood & Education Care – (Pathway to Bachelor of Education of Early Childhood)

Certificate IV in Educational Support – (Pathway to Bachelor of Education)

Certificate in Exercise Science – (Pathway to Bachelor of Exercise & Sports Science or Bachelor of Exercise and Health Science.

It is very pleasing that there are many Year 10 students who have taken the opportunity of the forthcoming holidays to spend one week at a Work Experience placement.  We hope that the placements are rewarding experiences and provide valuable insights into the worlds of work into which the students are venturing.  The benefit of this first-hand experience when discussing careers pathways cannot be overestimated.  Ms O’Sullivan will contact all students once during their time at the place of work to discuss how the placement is progressing.

 

Year 12 students who have not submitted their VTAC preferences have until Thursday 29th September at 5pm to do so without financial penalty.  All such students have been contacted and reminded of this during the last week of term.  Students applying for Special Consideration (SEAS) are reminded that the deadline for submission of ALL documentation is Tuesday 4th October at 5pm.  With the release of the UMAT results imminent, it is important to remind students aspiring to Medicine NOT to remove any Medicine courses from their VTAC preference list as these CANNOT be reinstated at a later date, no matter what your UMAT result.  Mrs White will be available Monday 19th September to help students with their VTAC applications if required.

 

Year 10 and 11 students are reminded that there are many programs to attend at the Universities during the holidays to familiarise yourself with their environments and programs.  Year 12 students are reminded about the Monash and RMIT Folio Preparation courses which may still have some places available.

September 8

posted 7 Sep 2016, 22:27 by Sue White

Year 12 students who have not yet had or booked a Careers Appointment with us to enter their VTAC tertiary preferences have been asked to do so as soon as possible.  The deadline for timely applications is Thursday 29th September at 5pm.  This date falls in the school holidays and we are asking all Year 12 students to have their first draft of preferences submitted prior to the end of term.  Doing so will ensure payment is $32 rather than an escalated amount for a late application next term.  Year 12 students are also reminded that a Tax File Number is required to enrol in any tertiary course.  Tax File Number applications are ONLY available via the Tax Department following which students must arrange an interview at the Post Office to produce relevant identification documentation.  This should not be left until December as there is a delay in receiving the Tax File Number once appropriate application procedure has been completed.

 

NO further Work Experience may be organised for the forthcoming holidays.  Students wishing to undertake Work Experience at the end of the year may arrange to do so until the closure of the College Reception Office.
