Your best days are ahead of you
Why do I say that? Read on.
Most of us aren’t actually in the place of our lives where we ultimately want to be. Right? Well, I for one know I am not yet.
According to 2,000 Australians (research conducted by Open Universities Australia), 58.1% of Aussies are considering another job!
Whether it’s bad pay, long hours, a bad team/employer, sometimes, all we want is a change.
For me? I don’t want a career change. I just want three careers. Greedy, aren’t I?
I’ve never mentioned it, but IRL, I actually do Financial Planning. I hear a loud ‘WOAH’ behind your screen. Haha. I get it all the time! How different from beauty blogging is that?
I mean, I love Financial Planning. It helps me as a ‘growing adult’ to manage my finances and it really helps me guide family and friends too. For me, it’s always been a self-satisfactory career. I love learning about how each strategy can benefit me and my clients, as well as my friends and family. Win win.
But outside of Financial Planning, I’ve always been interested in videography/video-editing. How I wish I was able to create amazing visual content for YouTube, or create a wedding video as beautiful as the ones I’ve seen. My imagination runs wild when I think about what I could POSSIBLY do if I knew how to do it. I love visual art.
So whether you want to make a complete change or you don’t want to give up your current career but want to learn about something you’re passionate about, then take a look at Open Universities Australia! Basically, Open Universities Australia gives you the flexibility to fit online study into your busy life – no matter what course you want to study and how old you are!
I found this unit called Digital Video Projects 201 which I want to study! You can study all the units ONLINE and the duration depends on the unit itself!
Digital Video Projects 201 is only 13 weeks and the only assessments are ASSIGNMENTS! This means, after the 13 weeks of online studying, I can become a movie-editing expert!
So if you like, you can study individual subjects/units just to learn more about a topic, but if you want an Undergrad or Postgrad, you will need to study sufficient units to complete your degree.
Similar to most colleges/universities, Open Universities Australia gives you the option to access HECS and FEE-HELP so even if you can’t afford to pay for your course today, you can pay it back later. It also offers student counselling, 24/7 tutorial support and access to a student success hub to help you reach your goals.
