It doesn’t matter if you’re a recent graduate or an established professional considering a career change. Getting your career direction right is harder than it looks and fraught with pitfalls.
What do you know about yourself including your skills, aptitudes, strengths and weaknesses? How about your most preferred area of work and the job opportunities available in that particular career direction?
It’s a big decision because the right (or wrong) career direction will determine your income, community status, friends and colleagues and overall lifestyle.
Your career direction often becomes nothing less than your identity and sense of self-worth.
So start with a thorough self-assessment. Be honest about what you’re good at and what you’re not. Don’t overlook key skills or aptitudes because you’re trying to ‘force’ yourself into a career direction your friends or family have pressured you to take.
Now research what best fits you and make a long list of possibilities. Which appeal the most? Which seems the most surprising? Can you see yourself doing that particular work day after day and year after year?
It’s not as easy as it looks, is it?
