CAREER TOOLS

Career development is the ongoing process of managing your life, learning and work. It involves developing the skills and knowledge that enable you to plan and make informed decisions about your education, training and career choices. The University of Auckland Business School Alumni team explores how you can get the most out of your career through hands-on workshops and online tools and techniques. Fostering an attitude of appreciation for lifelong learning is the key to workplace success and we want to help you with your journey.
