Claire Pech – Careers Advisor

Anyone who studies Career Development Theory knows about the Chaos Theory of Careers (Bright and Prior 2012). I like the concept of it because it embeds happenstance, luck, timing and all of those otherworldly concepts.

We also have to marry these experiences with other self-driven concepts such as education, planning, goal setting and taking control.

There’s no better time to embrace this theory of careers than when the world throws us a hand grenade, like COVID, and many of us have to accept these changes.

It is crucial for all of us, students, teachers, parents, anyone in the world of work or entering in to it, to know that we need to operate in both sides of this diagram. For the moment, as uncertain as this time is, especially for Year 12’s, we can control some of these by looking at the short term ahead, planning some goals, being strategic in our investigations and also seeking help when needed. My diary is always open for parents and students to book a time slot to discuss any options here.
