Times of transition can feel overwhelming and confusing. It is important to acknowledge this and take care of yourself. Pressures such as financial concerns or the stresses of our Covid-19 environment may make it difficult for you to focus on your career planning and decision making.
These resources are designed to provide support for you during this time.

Career and Employability Team
Career Development Consultant
Grad Dip Career Development, BA, CELTA.
On completing my BA, like many people I was unsure of what next. Unbeknown to myself at the time, I would spend a number of years practicing all the employability skills that I now impart to students and members of the public. As I enjoy languages I decided to become an ESOL teacher working both in NZ and overseas. Then having spent a considerable time working on my own career development journey I decided to become a Career Consultant. I completed the Graduate Diploma in Career Development and spent 4 years assisting people back into work after injury. A highly challenging and rewarding role. I enjoy working with people to help them unpack and find solutions to their career questions and it is really exciting when they have those light bulb moments. I am fascinated by the Future of Work and the role technology is playing in all our lives.
Career Development Consultant
GradCert in Career Development, BCApSci
I am currently employed as a Career Development Consultant at Unitec and have been working in the Career industry for over 10 years. Previous to this, I have worked in a variety of industries including Food Science, Advertising & Marketing and in the Non for Profit sector.
I have a Consumer Food Science Degree, plus a Graduate Certificate in Career Development and have completed MBTI training. I enjoy MBTI, as it helps people to understand themselves a little better and can assist them to figure out what work environments they may be attracted too. I particularly enjoy watching clients having ‘A-Ha’ moments as to why they do certain things and why some things come easier to them than others. I am passionate about helping people to uncover their potential, and encourage them to understand that many things are possible with just a little hard work and determination.
