With so many possible career options, the process of picking one can be challenging. What are your interests and goals? What are you good at? What would you like to learn? Where can you find out more about what people in different professions do all day? What does it take to do what you want to do for a living? Below are some tips and links to Web sites that can help you answer some of these questions.
- Who better to tell you what to expect from a profession than the people in it? Ask people already doing the job that interests you what it takes to excel and where you can find more information.
- Visit your school’s guidance counsellor for help determining your best career options. Guidance counsellors have an array of resources and are fully equipped with tools to help you make these choices.
- Research your chosen profession to see if there are professional associations that can give you guidance. Many offer not only information but opportunities for work experience.
