Links & Information For Your Planning
Achieving some clarity of direction regarding career options that make sense for you will take some time and effort. While there's no specific deadline by which time you must make some decisions, it always makes sense to be working toward that end sooner, rather than later, particularly as your career planning relates to your academic planning.
There are numerous factors to consider when thinking about career and/or academic options.
The first factors involve yourself: What are your values, strengths, interests, skills and purposes? How do those factors indicate fields of endeavor, academic or work-related, that will likely be more satisfying for you? What do I want in a fulfilling career?
Additional factors to weigh: What's out there? What kinds of jobs exist, or are emerging, that fit with your personality and characteristics, and with your academic program of choice?
It is not uncommon to find people in their twenties, thirties, forties--even beyond--who are asking themselves that familiar question, "What do I want to be when I 'grow up?" Making sound career choices is rarely a singular event, rather, a process that will follow an individual throughout his or her professional working life.
