Very relevant question. You need to list out your interests and passion. Requires a lot of thought and forecasting along with sufficient time for intensive research . There should always be a scale pf preference-- option 1, option 2 , option 3 . Suggest you finalise between these options unless you seem to have a 'dream career' for which you are willing to work very hard to achieve it. Choosing a career should be better done individually , at least in the initial stages ,without any assistance from anyone. The more a person reads and researches about the career, the more knowledge the individual will gain about the career and the more confidence he or she will be in being able to take a decision. What is needed is time for self introspection.

Vijayalakshmi recommends the following next steps:

Choose from courses of interest
Research about their career prospects
Choose the schools that are best suited for you.
Tuition fee, accommodation and other resources need to well considered.
Keep a plan B always handy !!

Hi Layal,

Elishah has some great resources for you. You may also want to consider:

1. What are my strengths? Strengths Finder is a great resource for this.
2. What am I good at that I enjoy doing? Make a list and see if there are any commonalities.
3. What is my personality? Do I enjoy working with people or by myself? Am I a big picture person or dig into the details?

Some more great resources once you've answered these questions for yourself:
The Career Aptitude Test: 123test.com/career-test
The O*NET Interest Profiler: mynextmove.org/explore/ip

Good luck! Don't forget that it's quite normal to try several career paths over your lifetime!

Great question, Layal,

The internet is teeming with quizzes and self-discovery guides for exploring career options, but your school may also have great options too. Even if your school doesn't have a guidance counselor on staff, it may still offer career-exploring help that can give you a place to start.

Here are a few links to get you started:
