Career orientation

Step 2: Do your research

The next step is to do some research about the careers and jobs that fit your personal profile. Ways to start your research might include orientating yourself online, networking or interviewing people in this career field, seeking an internship within the field or making an appointment with a career counsellor.

Step 4: Making your own plan of action

Your plan of action is an essential part of career planning as it provides you with the means of recording and assessing your own career development. Regularly setting and reviewing short, medium and long-term goals enables you to be in a stronger position to develop your career on your terms – nobody else’s.
