Assist others

The content on this page is a compilation of articles and resources designed for people who are helping others to plan their career pathway and discover the world of work.

Whether you’re an educator, professional, parent, relative, friend or mentor, you’ll find these resources useful for encouraging others to further explore the options that are available.

My career profile

My career profile is the core of the myfuture National Career Information Service. Completing the Australian developed psychometric Interests test will generate a list of suggested occupations to explore based on responses to the test.

The Skills, Knowledge and Work conditions activities will complement the Interest test outcomes and provide more context for consideration.


Occupation videos

Many of the occupation profiles on myfuture feature related videos, which provide insights into the occupations and their education and training requirements.

We have recently added several new videos on STEM-related occupations. These have been added to the playlist below, which you can expand to full screen and click through or allow to play continuously.

For parents and carers

Digital Career Bullseye resources

If students are having difficulty trying to relate their learning areas to occupations, the digital Career Bullseyes will help them by providing a visually engaging tool to explore curriculum areas. Each Bullseye poster contains a QR code linked to the occupations via the digital version.

Understanding Youth Transitions

The Longitudinal Surveys of Australian Youth (LSAY) track young people as they move from school into further study, work, and other destinations. LSAY provides a rich source of information about young people and their pathways, helping researchers and policymakers make educated decisions about youth policies. Find out more about LSAY and the range of information that they collect by visiting their website today.

The Adventures of You

The Adventures of You is a series of three, short animations that explore the mental skills required for career and life decision making.

The animations have support guides and worksheets that highlight the best ways to encourage executive function (decision making) development in young people aged 5-15 years and beyond.

The animations will help you to identify executive functions, relate them to your daily lives and take consistent, long-term action to improve your skills.

Working with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander students

Our articles on valuing diversity, career conversations and role models aim to increase the effectiveness of career practitioners providing career development services to Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander students.

For careers practitioners

myfuture's theoretical underpinning is inspired by the DOTS model career development learning framework (Tony Watts 2015). Each resource on myfuture aims to improve decision making abilities, self and option awareness, and career transition learning.

The myfuture team regularly engages with the career development community to provide professional learning opportunities. If you would like to register your interest for a professional learning session or contribute an article for publication, please contact us and we’ll provide further details.
