Are you unsure of what is happening in your industry? Unsure of what to do to get into that job you want? Or what’s the next step??
Define and do your research, explore and ask! Take some time to list what information you are looking for and what you hope to gain from that information.
Step 1. I have experience in manufacturing, so what else can I do in the manufacturing industry?
Step 2. What do the job prospects look like for a particular role?
Step 3. That looks promising, so what skills do I need for this role?
Step 4. I do have those skills, so what qualifications or training do I need for this role?
Step 5. Okay, so where can I find an RTO that can provide this training?
Step 6. Make a positive plan that will make this possible!
