It can be done.
Back in high school, you might have thought your whole future rested on the subject choices you made, the marks you got and the course you chose for your further education.
However, speak to most working adults and they will tell you their career pathway has changed multiple times.
So how do you turn things around if your career is not where you’d like it to be yet?
We spoke to two women who have given their careers a boost at a later stage in life. Wendi-Lee and Samantha are both Evocca College students who took advantage of the flexibility, tailored study plan and tutor support that the college offers to totally transform their careers and lives.
After being on maternity leave for ten months, Wendi-Lee felt she needed to update her skills in business administration.
“I wanted to change the way I felt when applying for jobs. I wanted to feel confident about the skills I had when sitting in an interview. I needed that to change in order to help provide for my family,” she says.
“I chose Evocca because I was able to start as soon as I wanted, and could work at my own pace. Knowing that I had my own tutor to guide me through my studies helped me feel at ease about studying again.
“They provide a safe, professional and fun environment to study in. The tutors are always willing to help, and they hold classes that teach you how to study correctly. It was the perfect learning environment for me.”
Mother of two Samantha explains she’s had a “winding road of life” so far in her career.
“I never went to university, and straight out of high school I started working for my local council. I was there for nearly eight years before I decided to move back to my hometown, where I worked for a while in logistics before starting a career in banking,” she says.
