Grow, upskill and achieve your true potential

86% of Australians are disengaged at work


If you’re one of the millions of Australians who feel disconnected from what you do for work, then you need to know that you have other options.

Find out where your skills lie, match them with roles and industries, then explore your options and start planning for a future that’ll make you want to jump out of bed every Monday morning.

At Ponder, we know that your career doesn’t define you, but it does have an impact on what your life looks like. 

By taking a strengths-based approach, you can focus on what you ARE good at, rather than what you’re not, and increase your health, wellbeing, and sense of satisfaction. 

We’ve just launched the beta version of the Ponder Skills Test, and would love to invite you to be one of the first to test your core skills today. 

Adults will be asked about their relevant work and community experience, but school and university students (including recent school-leavers) will find the student test more accurate. 

Which skills do you have?

The Skills Report

The Ponder Skills Test is entirely new and looks at what you do and who you are to determine where your strengths lie. 

Find out which skills you have, then match those skills with roles across industries. 

Unlike any other test you’ve taken, it’ll uncover the underlying drivers of your personality, values and career – the key things you need to look at in order to move forward.

In less than 15 minutes, you’ll learn more about your skill set and save yourself years spent pursuing a career that doesn’t suit your strengths. 

Life is too short


Ask any 90-year-old what they regret, and they’ll probably say they wish they’d taken more chances, and quit the things that didn’t bring them joy. 

Don’t waste time wondering if you should have taken that chance to do something better. Now is as good a time as any to change direction and find a new way to look at your future. 

The Skills Report is designed to cut through the confusion and give you a clear path forward. 

Ponder is brought to you by the team from Study Work Grow.

Since 2006, we’ve been helping young people explore their options and uncover opportunities, and in that time we’ve helped over one million students make smarter career decisions.

But we know that the world of work is changing – the concept of a ‘job for life’ is fading, and adults of all ages need to understand their options, which is why we created Ponder.  


There are thousands of jobs you could choose from, so start exploring your options and learn about possible careers.
