Careers rarely develop the way we plan them. Our career path often takes many twists and turns, with particular events, choices and people influencing our direction.

The best bit of advice I could give anyone thinking about going into dairy farming is to go out and get experience first hand on a farm. This way you will know if you enjoy it and have a passion to do it first hand. If you do then studying agriculture in school and then onto an ag college is a great foundation to get the required knowledge you will need in the future.

Social?
Social 
The Social person's interests focus on some aspect of those people in their environment. In all cases the social person enjoys the personal contact of other people in preference to the impersonal dealings with things, data and ideas found in other groups.

Many will seek out positions where there is direct contact with the public in some advisory role, whether a receptionist or a counsellor. Social people are motivated by an interest in different types of people, and like diversity in their work environments. Many are drawn towards careers in the caring professions and social welfare area, whilst others prefer teaching and other 'informing' roles.

This course will teach students how machines and other mechanical systems work and how they are designed and controlled - how the gear box, clutch and engine in a car operate, how medical devices are fabricated and designed. What the key properties of the materials used in the manufacture of these components are. What methods are used to fabricate and control these products.

The workload is balanced between approximately 50% formal lectures and 50% laboratories and workshop practice. A typical week has anything from twenty-seven to thirty hours of instruction. Tuition is given on the latest CAD packages and leading edge CNC turning and milling machines.
