So what is Swivel Careers?

Swivel Careers (previously known as Whr24U) is a personalised, in-depth career-coaching service that helps students set a pathway to a job they’re passionate about. We consider not only the student’s personality, skill-set and interests but also their passions and ambitions. As a result, we’ve seen hundreds of students — both secondary and tertiary — complete our programme and come out with the confidence, clarity and motivation to take on the workforce.

The Process

Since Swivel’s inception in 2007, we’ve carefully researched, developed and refined a process that works for students. We’ve identified the need for a quality, tailor-made service that allows young people to choose their own direction in life.

One-on-one Coaching

We sit down with each student and define his/her strengths, weaknesses, motivations and values from their own perspective.

Action Planning

We analyse the results of our work with each student and then we have an action-planning and goal-setting session, where we construct a plan to move forward.

Psychometric Testing

Next, we dig deep. Psychometric testing and profiling gives us a clear picture of the student’s personality, interests, strengths and possible career options.

Work Experience

Once a student has a good grasp of their chosen career pathway, we can find them work experience to see, first-hand, what their future could look like.

The Team

Our team is small, yet perfectly formed. It is important that our career coaches make a meaningful connection with each and every student, and that our process is well-informed by expert behavioural psychologists. To meet the team, click here.
