What Career is Right For Me?

How do I know what career is right for me?

Choosing the right career can be a difficult decision to make since it determines what work you will be doing for your entire career. The best way to decide for yourself is to look at what you are good at and what do you enjoy doing. For most, they settle for either of these choices.



For some, they are lucky to have both and enjoy long careers doing what they love and are the best at it. 



Core questions to ask yourself:

  • What am I good at?
  • What do I enjoy doing? 
  • What comes naturally to me?
  • What motivates me to work?

Once you have answered these, you can also apply them to the courses you wish to study.
