    What a fantastic innovation. Tom, well done. I am a careers educator in mid north SA, and your material, enthusiasm and approach is very impressive. I look forward to more videos and would like to suggest a panel on living and working in a rural setting. More than happy to have you guys come out and film at my school! I thought all the panellists were excellent, but in particular thought Melody, Rachel and Jessica were fabulous.

  2. Tom Hastwell Says:

    Welcome all careers advisors to a brand new forum for you to explore, review and contribute to career education discussion. Regularly, we’ll bring you a new video podcast. we ask that you register with aLife (its FREE) and spread the word about this and itself.

    If you have any questions, topics you would like discussed, dob someone in for a role as panellist, or put up a question – please feel free to contact me.

    Let me know what you think!



  3. Great Video! this a perfect way to interact the school leavers at this (as well as mobile phones) are their form of Media! keep it up!

  4. I think there could be a little improvement in the voice modulation with some of the panelists. If shown in a class room, it may be difficult to hear all panelists. Having said this, the concept is excellent, the content is very positive and invaluable. I agree with Trevor from SA, living and working in a rural setting would be great, go one step further and aim that at young city siders, who have little to no idea about careers in rural or non metro regions of Australia. Once again, always very happy to help with contacts and assistance through my networks. Fantastic to see a colleague Melody, who is also a RICA on your panel.
    Thanks again alife, very well done, lover the website too.
