Career Planning

So, you've decided it's time to start thinking about what you want to do with the rest of your life. . .

In many ways, making career plans is similar to planning a vacation. Your first step will be to choose a destination. Where do you want to go on your trip? Skiing in the Rockies? Disneyland? A tour of Europe? A safari in Africa? Even if you know that a ski trip would be your perfect vacation, how do you decide on the best ski resort? Unless you do some "homework," your vacation may end up being less than you had hoped for.

Unlike a vacation, however, if you don't do your homework when planning your career, the result may be a little more devastating than just a couple of wasted weeks and a slightly lighter wallet. You might end up spending thousands of dollars and four years in university, only to find you don't like the career you chose on a whim. That's an expensive whim!

To guide you, we have provided a number of resources to help you explore your options.

We suggest you begin with a self evaluation and move on from there. The right-hand menu will allow you to quickly move through the 'Steps to Career Success'.
