Choosing a career can sometimes feel like one of the biggest decisions that you will make in your lifetime. Your journey to select a career path will most likely not be a straight line leading in one specific spot. Rather individuals should treat their career a journey with twists and turns leading to several different types of careers over a lifetime.

When looking at your career options it is important to remember that each person has different skill sets, abilities, interests, work values and experiences, so there is no one career that that is best for everyone.  Starting the conversation on choosing a career can be difficult, the questions below are a good place to get started.

What are your natural abilities?

Where do you like to work?

What do you value at work?

What are your interests?

What types of experience (both work and volunteer) do you already have?
