Job Searching – Using your values to guide you

Job searching and applying for jobs can be overwhelming – it can be hard to know where to start! Understanding your values and what is important to you is a great first step to narrow down employers that may be a good match.

You might be early in your journey to understanding your values or you may already have them really clearly in your mind. No matter what stage you are at, there are some great tools available, such as the Headstart job matching tool.

Headstart is an online platform that matches you to jobs that align with your values, interests, and skills. Register to create your free student profile and be matched with hundreds of companies, spanning from small to medium enterprises, to large corporate organisations.

Register with the Headstart job matching platform.
