On the Job

Aimed at Secondary School level we look at a variety of jobs, the skills required, and the process of entering the job market.
The Function Coordinator - The Smooth Operator
One of Australia's biggest growing industries. We follow a functions coordinator at a major interaction conference. We see how his job relies on successful interaction with a big team of other people to ensure the conference runs smoothly.
The Graphic Designer - Creative Computing
A successful graphic designer takes us through the creative and technical aspects of the job. From the energetic creative brain-storming sessions to final design being approved by the client. The program also explores other job options for those with a creative bent.
The Childcare Worker - Patient Playmates
A day in the life of a childcare worker. What does it takes? What career paths does it offer? Are formal qualifications necessary? How is the industry looking in the future and what other jobs are there that involve working with children?
