Discover Career Goals

With all of the career possibilities out there, deciding on the career path you want to pursue can be a bit scary--and exciting. But, it's alright if you don't know exactly what kind of job you want after you graduate. 

Take some time. Head in a general direction that fits your interests. You can adjust your route later on. In fact, studies show the average job-seeker will change careers (not just jobs) at least five times over his/her lifetime, and some may change careers as many as 10 times. 

Here are some steps to get you started on thinking about your career goals: 

  • List your skills and interests. 
  • Research occupations that fit your personality and abilities and list three.
  • Look up qualifications needed for the three occupations listed above. 
  • List the steps you need to take to accomplish your goals (work experience needed, educational requirements, etc).
