About Us

Career-Wise Australia was founded to help people faced with the need to consider alternative career options due to changes in the economy, changes in their lives or just being ready for the next stage in their life adventure.

The site contains free career change information, professional advice and tips. It also recommends for purchase a carefully selected range of career change resources.

The types of career change we can help you with include:

  • A change to a completely different full time occupation
  • Adding a part time role
  • Undertaking further college study
  • Starting a business or working from home
  • Or even just moving to a better position within your industry

Our approach is based on the beliefs that:

  • Money is good thing... but career sucess is more than money alone
  • Career change support needs to be practical while also taking into account your need for passion and purpose in your life
  • The world is entering a period of major change and we need to be prepared for this in our careers

The founder of Career-Wise Australia is...

MITCH LAWRIE

  • Master of Education in Career Guidance, QUT
  • Professional Member of the Career Development Association of Australia (CDAA)
  • Certified MBTI® Personality Indicator Practitioner

In addition to his founding roles with Career-Wise Australia and Career Pro, Mitch is Director of Career Services for the EastCoast Human Resource Group. He also trains and accredit numerous career counsellors in the use of the  “Career Voyage” career guidance software for JIIG-CAL Australia

For over 10 years now Mitch has been working as a professional career consultant with clients of all ages. He has successfully provided career support services to numerous individuals and organisations, such as TAFE, Brisbane City Council, Energex and Queensland Rail. He also runs career direction and job search workshops at the University of Queensland through their public ICTE courses.

Mitch has the advantage of having worked in many fields himself. Roles have included concrete worker, lifeguard, draftsman, town planner, door-to-door salesman, English teacher in Korea,  youth development worker, and community development consultant. His career in his 20's and early 30's took him all over the world and through many different working experiences including photojournalism in Hawaii, lecturing on leadership in Russia, and facilitating international services projects in Turkey, Thailand, Malaysia, the Philippines, and Guatemala. He has experience in the corporate, government and community sectors in Australia. 

Mitch now lives near the beach on the Sunshine Coast with Cynthia and 5 year old daughter, Zoe.  He still goes surfing or kitesurfing 3 or 4 times a week when not assisting people with their careers. Mitch took the photo of Maroochy River above just after dawn one morning on the way to the beach.
