Tosh Lubek Productions has invited Magda Tomaszewska from CV World in Stirling to help answer your question with careers advice on How To Choose A Career. Magda is a Certified Professional CV Writer and Career Coach who specialises in guiding people to build careers they really want and deserve. Here are her 5 Top Tips on choosing the right career.
Define your natural skills and talents. Find out what you are naturally good at and feel passionate about. It is very important to keep developing yourself in that area and to choose the career that utilises your biggest strengths.
Know your career values. All of us appreciate different aspects of work. These could be for example a stable income, flexibility, executive level job title, commuting time and many others. If your job is incongruent with your values, you may quickly experience a burn out.
Understand your career purpose. What is your personal mission? What is it that drives you to succeed? Understanding your purpose helps you focus, concentrate, eliminate unnecessary activities and stay on the right track.
Do your research. Look for types of jobs that match your career values and utilise your main skills. Consider various options, think outside of the box, read about opportunities available to you and speak to people who have been in the positions that you are considering.
Define your success. Dream and think about what you really want. Create your own definition of success and start working towards it. Remember that clarity of your goals and purpose will help you make the right career choices.
