Choosing a career path can be one of the most difficult decisions a person can make. Doing research for career exploration is the best way to make an educated decision about your future occupation. Make sure to find out the specifics of your future career path such as training, qualifications and potential salary. If you are unsure where to start in your career exploration, you should perform an interest and skills assessment to give you some ideas about a career path that might work for you. The Kuder Career Planning System can help you to select one or more career paths to explore by matching your interests, skills, and work values. There are other assessment and career exploration tools available through the Career Services department at most colleges and universities. Once you have begun your career exploration and are ready to land your dream job, your school's Career Services department can also assist you with resumes and resume cover letters, career fairs, and the job interviewing process. Start planning your future today - a little research and career preparation go a long way in putting you on the path to success.
