- 2 August 2012 - In May 2012, the Canadian Education and Research Institute for Counselling (CERIC) requested an article about the "Get the life you love Campaign and National Career Development Week from an Australia perspective ... for the Canadian career practitioner community as it is felt that they have a lot to learn from the Australian experience". See article on p15 in the Summer edition of ContactPoint Bulletin. There are also a number of other interesting articles including the "importance of careers advisers using their own advice particularly on networking - see "Network your jobs" and CERIC’s 2011 Survey of Career Service Professionals revealed that a majority of career practitioners identified labour market information (LMI) as an area in which they needed professional development.

- WOW - over 12,000 students attended the National Careers and Employment Expo in Brisbane on Friday 4 May and the Get the life you love Team talked to many of them. The big challenge for most of them is that they have no idea what they are going to do after school. They might say that they will go to uni or TAFE but don't know what to study, what job they want or how to make the decision. For those lucky students who do know what they want to do they often don't know how to make it happen. We distributed over 9,000 Career Factsheets to the students we talked to. Take a look at the range of topics in the Get the life you love Campaign Career Factsheets
