    Hi Gloria,
    Would love to see a contemporary version of ‘What’s your job like?’ for VCE or year 10 students. My son went to Melbourne to a program called World of Work (WOW) offered by the local secondary college. He found the presenters amazingly inspirational and learned more about other peoples work situations by actually going to their premises with the WOW presenters. He saw people doing jobs a country boy would never even have thought about in high finance and accounting as well as graphic arts etc. It was run over a week and he came back very positive with lots to think about.
    xx Rhonda
