You’ll have a better chance of choosing job or career you’ll enjoy (and remember, most people change careers several times, and that’s OK), if you get to know yourself.
- Create a mind map – on a piece of paper, put your name in the middle. Around your name, jot down answers to these questions.
- What do you love doing?
- What subjects or topics could you talk about for ages and not notice the time passing?
- What kind of person are you? Are you super organised, or a bit disorganised but very creative? Are you (usually) super social, or do you prefer your own company?
- Are you thinking about going on to Uni? Or is formal education just not your thing and an apprenticeship or on the job training sounds better to you?
