Rebecca’s Answer

Thank you for your question. It is a very common question that many students have.
Below are my suggestions:
1. Think about your hobbies, your interest, etc. and identify the related careers. Eg If you are interest in Maths, would you like to be an Accountant, Banker, Financial Analyst, Engineer, Maths Teacher, etc. If you are interested in cooking, would you like to be Chef, run your own restaurant, run a bakery, be a domestic science teacher, etc.
2. Find out more on these careers and identify the careers you have interest
3. Speak to someone who are working on these careers. Seek advice from your mentor, school career counsellor, your parents, etc
4. Shortlist a few career your would like to pursue
5. Find out the entry criteria of relevant subjects in the college
Hope this helps! Good Luck!

Sungo’s Answer

Hi this is a commonly asked question by most young adults as you take a big step into the world of responsibilities.
I would always look at what passions you have (however obscure/unconventional they may seem to you). Modern technology means that there are probably communities of people/industries with similar passions. Getting paid to do what you love is the perfect combination. That being said be open minded around trying new things too. Not all careers are planned on day one. Sometimes circumstance, geography and financial situations will drive motivation initially leading to passion following after... this too is ok! Good luck!

Gillian’s Answer

Hi.
Such a great question. Create some time to explore, look at this as your learning adventure. Here are a few recommendations:
1. Questions for you: What are your strengths, superpowers, things you like, and you are good at (working with people or numbers). Also, What are you passionate about and gets you excited to do.
2. Do some research - Check out roles online and speak with people in different roles and career spaces and see if there is a match with your strengths, passions, interests or curiosities
3. Start with what you think it is best - you will always learn something in some capacity
4. Know that if it is not a fit right away, you always have a choice to continue or try something new
Your career is a journey so have fun with it too.

Greg’s Answer

Hi! Great question! When you graduate you are choosing a starting point for your career based on your interests, passions, and background. I would think about the following to get started : What are the subjects or courses you have enjoyed in school? What are your other interests? What do you enjoy doing? You can then seek our additional information on potential careers that align to your interests and talents. There are some internet sites that can help with lists of common career types by field, for example : https://www.careerprofiles.info/careers.html. Also remember that where you end up for career may be very different from where you started, and you are making the best decision based on the information you have to get started on your journey. Enjoy the process!

Jake’s Answer

Hi Daniela,
The first piece of advice I have on this is don't worry too much about having to pick a career now and sticking to it. People change jobs and careers frequently, and it is ok to do! Heck, I'm in my third industry and I've only been out of college 6.5 years. Perhaps a good place to start would be thinking about what you've studied to this point- what are the types of entry-level jobs people with your knowledge and skillset go for?
If you are totally opposed to those types of jobs, don't go for them! But, if you're looking for a job and a place to start, pursuing one of those jobs might be easier to get, and it will be valuable experience in learning what you like/dislike in the working world.
Any way you slice it, your first job will not be the end-all, be-all: think of it as a learning experience where you will build skills, learn how to navigate the world, and hopefully rule in or rule out a certain type of job or industry. Cheers!

Hilda’s Answer

Hi!
Think of what you are passionte about. If you like technology, consider working as a technician or engineer. If you like jurisprudence, you might wan't to work as a lawyer, prosecutor or judge or any other job in that sector. This goes for all kinds of interests. Don't let anyone else tell you what you should become.

Bye

Marika’s Answer

Think about your core strengths and how you can add value to an organization. Personality assessment tests are also helpful in understanding your core strengths.
