Members of CDANZ work in a range of settings including secondary schools, tertiary education, corporates, rehabilitation, not-for-profit, government agencies, as well as private practice. Services include helping people plan and manage their careers, make informed decisions about their occupation and study, and successfully navigate transitions.
