A career plan helps you determine your skills and interests, what career best suits your talents, and what skills and training you need for your chosen career.
By developing a career plan, you can focus on what you want to do and how to get there. And when you are ready to develop your resume, you will have a better understanding of your skills and experiences to discuss with potential employers.
Get started now:
- Decide your career goal, which can help you focus more clearly on possibilities available to you.
- A career goal can be a specific job you want to do -- such as doctor or teacher -- or be a particular field you want to work in, such as medicine or education.
- Rather than limiting your future, a career goal may help you discover career possibilities you wouldn't have thought of otherwise. There are several job possibilities with any chosen career. For instance, if you choose a medical career, you may want to be a scientist, a nurse, or a doctor.
- A career goal can also guide you into doing what you want with your life.
