Can We Guess Your Ideal Job Cluster Based On Your Life Choices?

The Foundation for Young Australians’ (FYA)

“The future is going to look very different. At FYA we believe young people are not a problem to be helped or solved. Young people are ambitious, creative and capable of rethinking the world and solving tomorrow’s problems today. And can do it all with a social conscience that will let them build a better world in the process. FYA is all about backing the next generation of young people who are going to rethink the world and create a better future.

The future world of work will need us to look beyond one ‘dream job’ and instead imagine a ‘dream cluster’ - matching a variety of skills and interests to a cluster so you can carry them across many jobs, not just one. Want to know which cluster you might fit in to?”
