Thomas Carr College Alumni - Share your Career Journey

Thomas Carr College Careers Department is keen to hear from our Alumni (past students and families) who might be interested in becoming involved in the ongoing career development of our current students.

We would be delighted to hear from you if you are able to be involved in any of the following programs. To discuss further please contact Naomi Nolan 8734 2444 or

Work Experience Program – our compulsory work experience program runs during Year 10 where students start to explore their career interests. Is your business or employer willing to host a Year 10 student for 1 week as part of our general program, or 1 day per week over 2 terms as part of the structured workplace program?

Mock Interview Program - this program is also part of the Year 10 Curriculum, where our students participate in a formal interview and job application process for a “mock” job. Our students are interviewed by a small panel of industry professionals and we are looking for people from all types of industries to be a part of this innovative program.

Guest Speakers we warmly welcome back and value your time for attendance at year level career days and information sessions to share your personal story and career journey.

Career Decision Making

Career Decision Making:

Is not Magic

It is about knowing yourself; your skills, interests, abilities & personality

You must be actively involved in the process - no one can make the decision for you

There is not one "ideal" occupation for you. You will have several occupations that will give you satisfaction

The choices you make now are not locking you in for life - expect to have several occupations during your working life

Remember: Your Career is a Journey - not a destination - think "Where am I going to start?"  and enjoy your personal journey!
