Choosing a Career

Choosing a career can be difficult and most people can expect to change careers several times during their working lives. Here are some steps that can help ensure your choices are good ones.

Start with your values.

Decide what's really important to you. What gets you excited?

Determine your skills and talents.

You are more likely to enjoy doing something you are naturally good at.

Determine your preferences.

People like to work in certain ways and in certain types of environments. Knowing your preferences helps determine what kind of work you will find interesting and challenging. Taking the Myers-Briggs Type self assessment indicator can help you figure this out clearly.

Get experience in the career field.

A career often looks different to those doing it than to those who are not. Get the inside scoop by talking to people who are actually doing the job. Consider taking a test drive by doing some volunteer, temp, or part-time work in the field.

Invest time and energy into furthering your career.

Devote an hour a week to something that is developmental. Dedicate yourself to getting ahead and taking control of your future.
