Career Journeys

Promoting Career Journeys to young people.

We're passionate about promoting sound career advice to young people across the UK. Here we're sharing some videos that volunteers have kindly recorded in which they share their own career journeys. Some prove that finding the right career path may not always follow the direction first envisaged.


Let us share these experiences with young people, raise their aspirations and provide sound advice in order to encourage young people that there is a career out there for everyone.
