Career Academy Course Program Workbook Cover Page ImageOur CAREER ACADEMY PROGRAM contains information, resources and exercises to help you discover your passions, values and transferable skills and match them will job opportunities in the financial, administration and accounting industry.

Best of all, work through the program with support of a mentor/career coach.

Stay on track with a dedicated Career Coach or Mentor who is there to help you if you need it as you work through the stages of the program.

Our mentors are people who have decided that they want to find work for themselves, on their own terms, and have gone on to create successful businesses, or to work successfully as well-paid contractors. They know it can be difficult to know where to start, and that you don’t know what you don’t know — they’ve done the hard yards already and are there to give you a helping hand. One that isn’t just theoretical, either, but practical and genuinely helpful.
