Monday the 21st Jan 2013 is the first day of the new semester for apprentice training at tafeSA and I am starting at Noarlunga Campus this year on alternate weeks with Gilles Plains so it should be an interesting year leading up to the move to Tonsley SIEC in Oct/Nov
As part of the years topics we do careers and how to get where you want to go.
Saw these two articles in the Saturday Advertiser 19th January 2013 and they give apprentices some great advice.
Things are changing at tafeSA and as the labour market gets tougher people looking for apprenticeships will be required to work harder to get them. Presentation and attitude are key to success in almost every career and those who stand out are noticed and move on through their careers.
Waiting to be noticed is not enough you have to show people what you can do and let them see that you are an asset to the company, business or trade team. Talking to others and learning anything you can from anyone you meet gives you more knowledge to find solutions to challenges that arise. In the trades the best tradesperson is the one who can work out the solutions and get the job done as a competent professional.
Good luck to all the apprentices out there starting a new career this year, live in the moment and focus on your job and your career, it is up to you to succeed. welcome to 2013…
