TURN YOUR PASSION FOR WINE INTO A CAREER
New course: International Business (Wine, Spirits and Tourism)
It’s amazing how often we don’t follow our passions. We start with good intentions, but real life can throw a spanner into the works, particularly when it comes to our dream careers. We intend to study, and to build our skills, but then we get a job and just… stay there. Kids come along, or promotions, or any one of a thousand things that distract us from our dreams.
But it doesn’t have to be that way. You can follow your passions, and head for success. And let’s face it, if your passion is wine, you already have a head start.
Australia is one of the world’s major wine producers, according to Wine Australia there are 2,468 wineries employing 163,790 full and part-time employees across 65 winegrowing regions in Australia alone. If you’re already in the industry, or interested in a career change, it’s a great time to develop or improve on the practical business skills that drive wine, spirits and wine tourism.
