Careers4u.tv has hundreds of young people talking about their work, career paths and why they enjoy what they do.
"...what you get is a comprehensive library of video interviews with young workers and entrepreneurs across a massive range of job categories. Many are in their mid twenties so you can really see what all the training is worth. Where this site really scores is not just in the quality and interest value of the videos, but also on the searches. You can search by qualifications, favourite subject and lifestyle as well as by business type and industry sector. Parents and teachers also get their own sections. One not to miss! "
Careers Guidance Today (ICG) May 2011
"The enthusiasm of each individual comes across, alongside the ways in which they have been able to respond to the opportunities that their job has given them. Careers practitioners will be able to work with or underline the most generic messages, eg the need for inter-personal skills, enterprise, business skills and the need to customise product or services. The case studies can be used for independent exploration or as a classroom resource."
