Our Story

My Careers began in 2018 in response to the needs of students, educators, employers and communities, embracing broader and deeper conceptions of learning success, careers education and equity of educational and career opportunities.

My Careers is an innovative evidence-based platform that recognises individuals’ unique interests, talents and skillsets, then enables the user to invest in learning to attain their purposes. This reduces the resources required to provide robust and agile career advice at every stage of the career journey. 

We have been fortunate enough to be working with inventive, innovative and creative educators who have been welcoming blended learning, competency-based assessment, online learning, learning analytics and micro-credentialing for the past few years now, out of desire. Pre-empting the transition to blended learning, we built an agile platform that starts at the outcome students seek, a rewarding future.

Reducing the friction between students and their career pathways is just the beginning. The most powerful attribute to follow is the ability for our platform to support the education industry entirely by delivering a more agile learning experience, inherently solving the demographical and equity challenges faced within the education system.

In recognition of utilising business as a force for good, transforming industries and challenging the status quo Fergus has gained recognition including Business News Australia’s ‘Top 100 Young Entrepreneurs’, Business News Australia’s Melbourne Entrepreneur of the Year, B&T’s ‘30 under 30’, ARN’s ’30 under 30′ and Ed Tech Digest’s CEO Global Leadership Award.

At the heart of his work, Fergus’s commitment is to the equality of education and better enabling individuals to chart their own learning toward rewarding and adaptable futures.
