  • Your personality

    Have a think about these questions and spend some time thinking about your answers.

    Knowing what you like and your strengths and weaknesses is a really important step in deciding what job you want!

    What do I like doing?

    When you are answering this think about what you like doing in your free time as well as at school or in previous roles.

    What would my dream job be?

    Thinking about what job you'd love to do will give you an idea of where your true career passions lie. This dream job may be unrealistic, but think about what core skills are involved in it and what more realistic jobs involve those skills too.

  • Consider a careers adviser

    Think about whether getting some extra help from a career adviser would help you figure out what you want to do.
