Some of the best jobs don't require a university degree...Companies often struggle to find employees with the right skills...Even though unemployment is high and you may be struggling to get an interview, the good news is that there are still opportunities for a rewarding and well- paid career. These opportunities can't be found inside a traditional classroom, but rather in the educational options that provide the technical, vocational and soft skills that companies actually need. These include professional certifications, associate degrees, apprenticeships, and occupational learning...In Job U Australian workforce skills expert Nicholas Wyman shows how to find these non-traditional pathways and get your dream job. Along the way you'll meet people of all ages who have done just that: from an emergency air paramedic, to a lead racing car mechanic, to a celebrity chef...If you are considering tertiary education, or if you are looking for a new career, Job U is your ticket to a secure and prosperous future...'A thoughtful guide to what is needed to succeed in workplaces that are rapidly transforming themselves.' - Professor Peter Shergold..'Job U gives readers permission to imagine the possibilities toward a successful and rewarding career - outside an office cubicle.' - William Galvin OAM, Chief Executive Officer, Tourism Training Australia..'Job U should be required reading for those wanting to know where and how to acquire the in-depth knowledge and real-world skills needed not just to land a well-paying job but to progress up the ladder toward a well-paying career.' - Stanley S. Litow, Vice President of Corporate Citizenship & Corporate Affairs, IBM..Winner 2015 International Book Awards and winner 2015 USA Best Book Awards in the Business: Careers category
