Your career pathway is the unique route you choose, from the many routes available, to reach your career goals.

As you gain more experience in the world of work and undertake a variety of life experiences, you are building your unique career path.

Base your career and educational choices on who you are today. You can always change the course of your pathway in the future, as you yourself, and your desires, change. A career adviser can help you, if you’re having trouble seeing how your education, community and personal pathways interrelate, and what your choices are. Read More...

Construct My Career is an initiative of the Construction & Property Services Industry Skills Council (CPSISC).

The Challenge

  • People are generally unaware of the breadth of the construction and property services industries and the careers that are on offer.  This includes career advisers, young people and their parents/families, and people who are looking for a career change.
  • People’s perceptions of the construction and property services industries are outdated, narrow and erroneous.
  • There is an under-representation of women in building and construction, particularly at trades’ level, which exacerbates skill shortages.

Our Mission

  • To promote the construction and property services industries, and the careers that are on offer, to career advisers, young people and their parents/families, and people who are looking for a career change;
  • To encourage/advocate the employment of women in building and construction;
  • To be a point of contact in the construction and property services industries for anyone seeking career advice; and
  • To have or to be able to find the answer to any reasonable career question.
