Identify Potential Careers
The job exploration process can be a lot of fun and in the end we should have at least a list of careers that we might want to pursue and maybe even a career that we’ve not really given enough thought to but is a great fit.
The first thing you will want to do is examine your personality, abilities, and interests. The Department of Labor has put together a great tool called O*NET OnLine.
Go to this site and take the short survey. At the end you will be presented with your personal profile and a list of potential careers that you can explore. Create a list of the careers that most interest you. Try to gather at least 10.
In a moment you’ll want to choose one of the three buttons. Whichever one you choose will open the O*NET site that fits you in a new window (this page will remain open). When you are done there come back here to continue.
