Choosing a Career
Today I have been researching about information and careers for my dream job, Mining. I have chosen this to be my dream job because you can work hard, work in a team, enjoy being somewhere different, learning new things and earning good money!
To make my dream job come true I am setting goals that I know I can achieve.
These goals include:
- Passing my driver’s licence so I can drive all different sorts of vehicles
- Move forward in this career
- Passing my general education certificate to get a higher qualification in the job.
- Do a pre-app with a company to increase my chances of getting a job on the mines.
I am planning and setting my goals as soon as possible. I am currently going for my driving lessons to work towards getting my HR licence. I am also applying for pre-apprenticeships to work towards an apprenticeship in the mining workforce.
Finding My Skills
Finding my skills was not as easy as I thought. I have made an account on a website called Myfuture to help me find the right job for me and to help me find my skills and other bits and pieces to improve for work. I have a few skills that I didn’t know I had such as skills with people. This doesn’t have to be talking aloud to big groups of people or anything I’m terrified of, its just as easy as guiding, treating, caring, educating, or persuading people in small groups or individually.
My dream job for in the near future is to do mining. This is because it is hard work and your always doing something and not sitting around. My Dad works in the mining industry as a supervisor and tells me lots of different things he does when he is at work such as learning how to use new machinery, telling the crew where to go and what to do etc. When I get to the mines I want to start off by driving trucks and working my way up to supervisor or even higher.

Since I have chosen this job to be on the mines my personal aspirations are to buy a nice car, a house and to achieve all my goals. My aspirations for work is to work hard, earn good money, and hopefully work my way into management.
