The Shelford Careers office is located within the Resource Centre. The Careers Counsellor is available to discuss the range of options that are available, and to provide material that will assist students with their choices.

Careers counselling is available on a one-on-one basis, which is important when students are considering subject choices and tertiary preferences. All Shelford students have the opportunity to undergo a mock interview, participate in a week of work experience, visit a range of Melbourne based universities and meet people working in a broad range of vocations. Career testing is available to assist students to make informed decisions.

For the 17th year in a row, 100% of Shelford students have received a first round offer for a tertiary institution.
