Ace Day Jobs

This is the time of year when students focus on their future. Some are considering their university preferences after receiving their final results and others are finishing their course. Some students are still deciding which subjects to chose. No matter what the circumstances, the question is the same..."What do I want to be when I grow up?"

The ABC has established the Ace Day Jobs website www.abc.net.au/acedayjobs/ to give students an insight into some really cool science and engineering jobs in Australia. It's about people who really love their work and how they got into it. Often there's a few twists and turns on the way.
