 Now What?


Where are you in the Career Development Process?

Self-Assessment

I know what is important to me (values, priorities).  I understand my own strengths, weaknesses, skills, interests, values, and personality characteristics. I know what I am most interested in, what I can get most excited about.  
        

Career Exploration
I have learned what jobs and careers are “out there” that would be a good match for me.  I have researched employment outlooks, training needed, occupational trends, work environments, etc.    

        

Decision Making
I can make decisions based on information about me and the world of work  


Career Implementation
I can set goals and develop a plan of action.  This includes the “nuts and bolts” of a job search including creating a resume, writing cover letters, preparing for interviews, and actively pursuing specific employment opportunities.
