What is Career Planning?

Career planning is a lifelong process, which includes choosing an school, college, stream, occupation, getting a job, growing in our job, possibly changing careers, and eventually retiring. The Career Planning Site offers coverage of all these areas. This article will focus on career choice and the process one goes through in selecting an occupation. This may happen once in our lifetimes, but it is more likely to happen several times as we first define and then redefine ourselves and our goal.

Suggestions for Career Planning

Don't select a career based solely on money.
Do pick a career for which jobs are available with income levels adequate to meet your family's financial needs.
Don't expect a quick, easy answer. The career planning process requires time and effort. Invest the time to identify/evaluate careers that "fit" your needs, interests and abilities.
Do use a variety of tools and talk to several people in each career of interest.
Don't get discouraged or discredit the process when some clearly unacceptable careers appear on the list generated by an interest assessment tool (they will). Career planning is not a precise science. Some reason and judgment must be applied.
Do think about the process as a way to significantly improve your odds (with no guarantee) of selecting a great career.
