Having a clear picture of your unique talents, interests, values and skills will be the base of your career planning journey.
Once you have a clear idea of your interests, current skills and the things you value, you can start exploring options, by gathering information about occupations, education and training opportunities.
Once you have explored your options, the next step is narrowing down the work and/or training field on which you would like to focus. Take time to analyze the options you have explored and make decisions about what path you want to travel. These tools will help you manage career expectations and set reasonable goals.
