As a student you’re going to have a lot of questions, but are you finding the right answers from those you’re speaking with? Education is at a critical time in it’s evolution as our world advances, innovates and evolves at break neck speed and the traditional system is struggling to keep up. We want to give you a different perspective and introduce you to other options and alternatives that might help you navigate a new journey that fit’s your individual needs.

Should I go to college?
This is a question we’re getting asked more each year, is college the right decision for me? 10 years ago it might have been the only choice, but today you have a wealth of other options, and with the financial commitment and debt that college can bring we’d argue you need to at least look at other alternatives. From coding bootcamps to online degrees or getting real work experience through apprenticeships or starting your own business there is more than one option to explore.
My parents want me to go to go to college but I’m not sure it’s the right path for me.

From a young age, school and subjects is all we know and our grades define our success. But when you leave school, you also leave grading and subjects behind you. There’s this idea that the further through school you go, the more successful you will be. This is not the case and you are lucky to live in a time where people are starting to see through this myth. There are so many different pathways you can take but if the people around you don’t know about or respect them, then you are never going to believe that they are worth exploring.

How do I land my dream job?
What does your dream job even look like? Perhaps this is the first question you need to ask before the ‘how’! More than ever before, people are searching for high levels of job satisfaction; where they feel like they are making a difference in the world, where they wake up in the morning excited about the day of work ahead and where their job fits around the rest of their life rather than vice versa.

All of this is possible but it won’t happen overnight. Join Corkscrew Backstage, our online home, where you can access resources, events and mentorship to help you work out what your dream job is and how you can start working towards achieving it.

I’m worried that I don’t have the right skills to compete in the jobs market.

You are no longer competing with people from your hometown or country for jobs. Globalisation, Technology and Travel means that you are now competing in a global market.
We believe that the key to staying relevant and employable lies in becoming a lifelong learner. Investing in yourself to make sure that you continue to learn; expanding your mind and skill set throughout your career.

Where can I find a relevant internship?

Most colleges are pushing students to take internships, but are these still relevant in the changing working world? The real value to an internship is about the development of technical and human centric skills, but too often host organisations don’t provide valuable learning experiences. We have worked for the last decade in developing a unique alternative to traditional internships that focus on vocational learning in real world environments. The Student Studio is a great place to learn how to develop your own Experienceship or how to join one of our partner programs.

I'm just about to graduate and I need to figure out my life.

Once you understand that most people never figure this out things will start to feel better! Long gone are the days that you’re destined for that one career. some even argue that with the upcoming changes in how we work that the majority of traditional professions (lawyers, accountants, finance, translators, software developers and many more) are going to disappear. This is a time for short term goals and learning about industries and roles that you have an interest in. Our team of Corkscrew Coaches are there to help you map out those next steps and build the confidence to start your journey of exploration.
