Choosing a Career
The nature of work is changing. You will probably change jobs numerous times over your lifetime. The idea of a job for life doesnt exist anymore. Your career may involve a range of different jobs. New technology also means that there are new occupations today that didnt exist ten years ago. Many of these occupations involve working with computer-based systems, procedures, machinery and the Internet. Many of the occupations of the future will mean being self-employed, or working in small business. The changing nature of work will provide many opportunities for those who are prepared for them. This will mean being able to identify opportunities, take initiative, persevere, be flexible and work in teams. It will mean developing the right enterprise skills for the future. However, choosing a career is not always easy. For most people there is not one right occupation, but several occupations they could do and enjoy. Different occupations will satisfy you in different ways. Different occupations will suit you at different times. Your career is your whole working life, which can be made up of a wide range of occupations and involve many changes in direction. It is important that you make informed choices. It is wise to base your career decisions on a good understanding of yourself, as well as a complete knowledge of the occupations and courses open to you. It takes time to think about yourself, to decide what sort of lifestyle you want, to talk to people and to explore occupations. If you want to find work that is satisfying, however, there are no shortcuts and without this knowledge, you may be tempted to react to whatever luck brings your way. It is important that you take charge of your career. Only you can make career choices that work for you. You are the best person to choose work that suits your own skills, knowledge, personality and interests. So be positive and act now by taking three small steps. Get to know yourself. Find out which career is right for you. Match yourself to a number of jobs in that career area and choose those that may suit you. ______________________________
