It's Monday morning, and you're dreading the moment your alarm will go off. You've outgrown your nine-to-five desk job, and you're ready for that exciting new challenge that will get you bounding out of bed in the morning. Maybe you'll swap your Excel sheets for an old typewriter to begin the next great Australian novel, or perhaps stop taking orders from someone else and become your own boss.
When your parents said you could be anything you wanted to be when you grew up, they never specified it had to be just one thing. On average, Australians change up their careers five to seven times in their lives, and we've teamed up with Open Universities Australia to help you figure out what your next move may be. If you find yourself entranced by the work lives of the characters on your favourite TV show or spend more time in the digital world than in your physical one, chances are you might be ready for a change. Even if you aren't looking for a complete career overhaul, but just want to add to your existing skills and take on more responsibility (you grown-up, you), Open Universities is certain to have a study option from one of Australia's leading universities to help you get ready for that lifechanging leap.
