Almost half of Aussies have regrets about the career choices they made, shows a new global survey.

The study, which was conducted by global recruitment firm Kelly Services, found that many Australians wish they'd studied something different after leaving school or had chosen another career.

The survey also found that many Australian workers have deep-seated concerns about the quality of their education - both at school and post-school.

To reach the conclusions, the survey sought the views of 115,000 people in 33 countries including almost 19,000 in Australia.

Kelly Services managing director James Bowmer said the findings show a fairly high level of concern about career choice and direction.

"Many people in the workforce do not believe that their education properly prepared them for working life and quite a few have regrets about the direction that their job has taken them," theage.com.au quoted Bowmer, as saying. (ANI)
