About myfuture

myfuture is Australia’s National Career Information Service, managed by Education Services Australia (ESA). This government-funded resource is designed for use by students, teachers, career practitioners, parents and carers.

myfuture offers unbiased career information that assists with career planning, career pathways and work transitions by providing information for students’ career development and additional resources for those who support or influence career choices. Featuring information and resources developed by career experts and professionals, myfuture’s theoretical underpinning is inspired by the DOTS model of career education (Law and Watts, 1977). This framework includes four components that are fundamental to career education: Self-awareness, Opportunity awareness, Decision learning and Transition learning.

  • 358 occupational group profiles from the Australian and New Zealand Standard Classification of Occupations (ANZSCO)
  • 19 industry profiles from the Australian and New Zealand Standard Industrial Classification (ANZSIC)
  • over 15,000 Australian higher education and vocational education and training (VET) courses to provide a complete picture of opportunities.
