As we enter the new academic year, we know that pursuing a career takes passion and a lot of hard work. But what if you are still undecided as to which field you would like to follow?
There are organisations that deal specifically with exposing students to different career paths as well as giving them guidance. These organisations have expos around the country aimed at helping out tertiary and high school students to determine who and what they want to be in the future.
