How to Choose the Right Career
For individuals who have just graduated from college or just fancy a change of direction in their lives, choosing the right career can be a very daunting prospect. Thankfully there are now a vast number of resources available that can help to make that choice much more straightforward and which give people at the start of their career access to far more information than would ever have been available in the past.
Finding Career Information Online
The first place to look for advice on the right career is the internet. A quick search will bring up hundreds of articles, blogs, forum comments, and Tweets from people already in a particular occupation. Be sure to read plenty of these, as relying on one source can make it easy for one person’s individual experience to dominate a narrative.
Asking Friends and Family
Those who know somebody who is already in the career that they are considering will find themselves at a distinct advantage as they will have someone on hand to answer any questions that they have. It’s generally best for someone in this situation to arrange a meeting with the person in question. Taking them for a coffee or to a bar can be an excellent idea. It’s also a good idea to give them a picture of the types of questions they will be asked. This will allow them to prepare in advance and be as informative as possible.
