The number of professions, career fields, and emerging industries across the globe is truly staggering. The choices are virtually limitless and can be both exciting and daunting.
The best way to focus your sights is to know yourself. As with choosing a major, step one is to understand your own skills and interests, values and motivations, likes and dislikes, temperament and personality, and goals. You may be tuned into some of this already, but we can help you explore these questions further.
All of these questions—and more—can help you map out the best path.
While inventories don’t have all the answers, they can be useful in helping you sort out a direction; identify your skills, interests, and values; and even understand why you sometimes think and feel the way you do.
Since life will keep you constantly growing, changing, and learning about yourself, regularly take time to reassess your goals and how you’re pursuing them.
