Some Truths about Career decision-making
1. Career decision making is not magic
2. Career decision making is about knowing yourself (values, abilities, personality, interests)
3. No one else can make the decision for you
4. You must be actively involved in the process
5. There is not one “ideal” occupation for you. There will be several occupations that will give you the satisfaction you want from work.
6. The career decision you make now is not a life-time decision. You will have several occupations during your working life.
7. Think “Where am I going to start?” not “Where am I going to finish my Career?” your Career is a journey… not a destination!
