Doing Further Study

“There are so many career options out there and sometimes it’s really difficult to figure out what courses I need to do and skills I need to get. I’ve seen some ads for careers in intelligence but not sure how that would apply to me. Would there be a need for someone like me who’s undertaking further study? I’m just not sure where to find the information.” 

If you are still studying – at university, or at TAFE – then there is a career in intelligence for you.
