Last updated 3/6/2016

The purpose of this page:  A series of links which you can use for your own exploration into the various options you have when you leave King's High School.

Ms Schaumann is the Careers Advisor.  She is available for consultations about:
  • Subject choice (helpful decision making tool here)
  • courses you might be interested in when you leave school
  • information about entry criteria for various courses and jobs
  • helping you organise some work experience - Yr 12 & 13 only
  • ideas of where you might go looking for work
  • information about scholarships available
  • helping you make a CV
  • talking your career options and future pathways though

You can email her here:

Careers information resources are available for all New Zealanders here.  You can search by job, and find lots of help with your decision making.  Most careers in New Zealand are on their databases, you can find out how to get into the job, what kind of people do these jobs, salary, and the demand for people in this job.

Otago University is our local university
Otago Polytechnic is our local polytechnic

HELP I don't know what to do when I leave school!  This site is probably the most useful.  Look here, you might find something helpful.  You should also come and have a chat with Ms Schaumann.

HELP! I'm a parent who wants to help my child with their career choices.  Have a look here. Ms Schaumann is happy to talk to you too.  And read this article. And use this site. Get hold of this book if your child is in Yr 13 - Ms Schaumann can lend you a copy!

I want a scholarship to help pay for my study:  You can access Giveme which has all the scholarships available in NZ listed from the Library page, from there you have direct access. Breakout is a registry of all scholarships available - including cultural scholarships.  See Ms Schaumann if you need help.  Go to the webpage of the place you want to study and search for undergraduate scholarships.

University Bound?
Use The Subject Checker from Otago University to help you narrow down your choices of papers.  Also try out No Major Drama - lots of helpful info to help you decide on a major at a university NZ wide.

Wondering where the jobs are?  Look here - a print copy is available from the Careers office for loan.

Studylink - For students, to help fund your study .  Studylink info for parents.

Soon there will be a Google Classroom for careers.  The link will go on here when it is up and running.
