School Sessions.

by The Cool Career

A unique, professional and groundbreaking career development workshop developed specifically for female students in Years 10, 11 and 12.

Our School Sessions are designed to strategically blend mindful meditation, real life career stories, solo introspection and networking to give your students a fresh, fearless perspective on career pathways and career advice.

We want to work with you to ensure that your students are perfectly equipped in every way, to make their cool career dreams a reality.

The future is powered by women, women that push boundaries and take risks. Through this program your students will learn clarity, confidence and the importance of collaboration when it comes to their future course selection and career endeavours.

Our Mission

We aim to give girls the tools and confidence to live their dream career

We Are

The Cool Career is the ultimate career guide that inspires girls to follow their dreams, make radical decisions, and leave a positive, but disruptive impact on the world around them. We do this by interviewing empowering women, who live purposeful, fearless lives. With a no BS approach, we extract their career story, advice and knowledge, and package it up into compelling content (Live Events, Online Products, Digital Content, + collaborations) – to inspire the next generation of strong women.

Founder and Director

Kura Antonello, brand manager, word weaver, story teller and leader of the head in the clouds brigade, presents The Cool Career. Drawing experience from her 13 year career in marketing and public relations, Kura is passionate about teaching girls how to identify, apply, and succeed in whatever career they want (without judgement, gender bias or prejudice) and to realise their worth.

We Do

We have built and continue to grow an engaged online community of fearless females. Girls who aren’t afraid to buck the status quo. Girls who focus on their studies and try their hardest, always. Girls who are prepared to take risks and understand that they have the power to control their own career destiny.

Online Community

Our online community is predominantly made up of female students from Year 10 through to first year University (15 – 20). Our Core demographic are those girls studying Year 10, Year 11 and 12. Our content is empowering, inspiring and above all, career focused. Once you have attended an event, you are part of our private online support community for life.


Careers are a true collaboration between babe and brand, and as such, we have mapped out a program of cool collaborations for the remainder of 2017 and beyond. We are open to brand collaborations with relevant, engaged parties, that are heart centred and care more about people then their bottom dollar. In the past 5 months we have worked with the cool kids at frankie Magazine, and thankyou, Lululemon to name a few.

Live Events

Our events are the first ‘girl focused’ career networking type in Australia. They were created to compliment the online program and already are a big hit, created to take our career focused discussions off line and into the real world. Our mission is to take the dated Career Expo concept and turn it into a totally new, inspiring format that kids actually want to attend, and parents want to take their kids to.

Imagine a world were girls are able to network and talk (1:1) to their #careercrush or the CEO of a company and find out what they are looking for from a potential employee? These events are a chance for students to network, ask questions and learn from women live. These events are also sponsored by relevant brands. creating a truly immerse environment for the student.
