Life is full of choices and these choices and decisions uplift or mar life. This is not as intimidating as it sounds, believe me. Just a little bit of planning and correct understanding, is all that it takes to achieve your goals and get that dream job. So the question arises “how to make a new career choice?” We try to answer this question as follows:-
First and foremost, make a safe assessment. Take out a ‘me time’ from your daily schedule. As someone said –“Take some time to think, it is a source of power”. Think and assess, those are the key words. Evaluate your goals, your dreams, your expectations from life and what steps you need to take to fulfill these expectations. These days self assessment tools are available on the internet and these tools can help you sort out your problem.
After this contemplation and self assessment, make a catalog of occupations you think you are interested in and want to explore. After making this list, tick out the more important and cross out the not so important goals. This will narrow down your search. A point to remember is if you are taking the help of some self assessment tool, then different tools can come out with different results. To ease out this confusion, you can sort out these results and write them under one master list.
Once your search is narrowed, all you need to do is finding relevant information about these preset goals like, what kind of training and education, you need to achieve them and what and where are the institutions which offer these training. After all, you need to make yourself a capable person, before you are on your final mission.
Last, but not the least after all these steps, hopefully you can make your career choice and have your pick. Don’t pressurize yourself. If you make a choice and decide to change in the future, you are free to do so. Many people change their career more than twice in their lifetime and that’s common.
