National Careers Service

Whether you’re looking for your first job or wanting to change career, there are a number of things you can do that can help you make the best decision. Firstly, get to know yourself – your strengths, values, interests and ambitions. Next, do your research on your chosen job – make sure you know as much as you can about what the job’s really like and if it’s the right job for you.

Finally, get some advice from a professional – there might be other options or funding schemes open to you that you didn’t know about. And it always helps to have someone impartial as a sounding board to check if you’re doing the right thing.
