The CQU VC says Y12 students should set their own career course
“My advice to year 12 students who are considering the career signals being sent to you by the government this week, is to ignore the career signals being sent to you by the government this week.”
“Block out the background noise and decide where your passions lie. Focus exclusively on how you want to make an impact in this world. The only person who gets to decide what your career and study paths looks like, is you. Don’t let a room full of politicians and bureaucrats convince you against doing an arts, humanities, business or law degree if that is where your passions lie.”
“There is not a politician … on the planet who could predict employment trends over this time. So, set your own career course.”
Professor Klomp’s message is in on the CQU website because, “I still haven’t figured out Tik Tok.”
