Feeling a little lost lately? Confused? Not sure if you should lean into the wind and become the person you’ve always wanted to be or linger and order that extra slice of avo toast? We’ve got you friend. A change of direction can do a world of good no matter what stage of life you’re in and upping the ante, education wise, is easier than you think.

Here’s a handy-dandy infographic to get you on the road to greatness:

The Nurturer.

The antithesis to squeamish, you’ll offer a hug, band aid or chocolate brownie to anyone in need. In fact, your hugs are legendary with talk of their prowess traversing the globe. You’ve always felt an affinity with children (despite their constant stickiness) and your patience is seemingly endless. Chocolate brownies are your go-to and you are always on speed dial for when your friends find themselves in a crisis.

A Bachelor of Nursing or Education studied online with Charles Sturt University (CSU) will be perfect if you’re looking to make this nurturing propensity legit. CSU trains close to 20 per cent of teachers in NSW, so you know you’re in good hands.

The Analyst.

If there’s one thing you know to be true, it’s that you’ve got your head screwed on straight. If there’s a problem, you’ll offer up logic and reasoning, if there’s a tangle of headphones, you’ll get to work with a magnifying glass, not a hammer. “Is there empirical data?” is tattooed on your left bicep, and you refuse to associate with anyone who has neither seen, nor connected with, Good Will Hunting.

If you’re looking to expand on these unique skills without quitting your day job (yet), try CSU’s online Master of Project Management or Master of Dispute Resolution, either way we know you’ll have enough yellow highlighters handy. Prepare yourself for a ready, set, go! career.


Social Warrior.

Led by your heart and with a social conscience that won’t quit, you’re always scouring the papers for the socio-political low-down and wandering through the halls of art galleries. Pantone swatches are never far from reach and despite repeated tweets, you’ve never made it onto Q&A but rest assured, you’ll get there. Friends are iffy on travelling with you after seeing the lengths you’ll go to for a holiday snap – you lay down on the Champs-Élysées once and you’re labeled for life – but the joke’s on them, your Instagram scored 100 new followers that day.

Ready to make your dreams a reality? We recommend signing up for a Bachelor of Creative Arts and Design. You can do it online with CSU and still doodle the next ‘Guernica’ on a napkin at the local café.

The Explorer.

Maps? We don’t need no stinkin’ maps. Adventure is in your blood and there ain’t no slowing you down. Not one to settle, you’re never in one place for long: there are too many jungles and forests in need of navigating. You fall short of ‘smart casual’ due to a slew of mountain boots and cargo pants in your wardrobe and while you’re not sure what a ‘Kardashian’ is, you do know how to pick a solid hiking stick.

A Masters in Environmental Management studied online through CSU or similar qualification will help further your love of earth, allow you to keep travelling and guarantee you a job as the next Christopher Columbus.
