Take action

What's next? Now you should decide which career path is best for you and create an action plan.

Choose a career path

Consider what you learned in your self-assessments. Review the career options you have researched and make decisions by matching what you know about yourself to what the options have to offer.

  1. List those occupational options of the greatest interest and best match to you.
  2. Narrow down the list down to 3 to 5 most desirable career options.
  3. Gather detailed information about each choice. Identify factors important to you, such as employment outlook, education, salary, working conditions, etc.
  4. Weigh the pros/cons and risks for each choice.
  5. Decide which career option is best for you.

Create an action plan

Now that you have a career option selected, you can begin creating an action plan to act as a roadmap for your journey.
