Summary Today unemployment hovers over 6% in Australia, and youth unemployment is 14%, yet companies struggle to find and keep employees with the right skills...The good news is that this skills gap equals unprecedented opportunities for anyone seeking a rewarding and well-paying career. These opportunities can't be found inside a traditional classroom, but rather in the educational options that provide the technical, vocational and soft skills that companies actually need. These include: professional certifications, associate degrees, apprenticeships, and occupational learning...In Job U you'll learn how to navigate these non-traditional pathways into your 'dream job' in any field. Along the way you'll meet people of all ages who have done just that: from an emergency air paramedic, to a lead racing car mechanic, to a celebrity chef...Whether you are considering tertiary education, or further along in your career journey, Job U is your ticket to a more secure and prosperous future...Winner in the 2015 International Book Awards in the Business: Careers category
