Finding a career is a process. As you explore careers, you will -
  • Gain awareness and knowledge of your interests, abilities, and skills.
  • Perform career research, identify potential careers, and begin narrowing career options.

Career guidance systems are designed to help you identify -
  • Career interests, abilities, skills, and values
  • Desired salary path and working conditions
  • Required educational training
After selecting your career, it is important that you find the right educational program.
