First, remember you’ve made important decisions before, like choosing your GCSE options. Are any of those motivations and reasons still important? Being clearer about your strengths, abilities, interests and motivations will help you decide the next stage. If you’re struggling to think what ‘job’ would suit you, think about contexts, situations or types of organisation you may want to work in.
You may have a ‘dream job’ and worry that it’s too ambitious or unachievable. Find information about people who do that job and see how they got there, you can look at these videos on www.icould.com to inspire your career choices. It may give you ideas for what to do next, and be reassured that people’s careers evolve in various ways. Skills assessment questionnaires can also help you generate ideas, see connections between job types, and decide what to investigate further.
If you’d like to talk through your options and get advice on how to explore these, book an appointment with a careers advisor.
It’s not uncommon for students to have doubts about their choice of course. If you’re in this situation we can help support you make a decision.
