Shaping the Direction of your Career

Your career is one of the most important aspects of your life. We spend so much of our lives at work and it just isn’t practical to have a job that you don’t enjoy. Make sure you take positive steps as soon as you can to shape the direction of your career.

You should begin thinking about your career path as early as when you are in school. You will be aware at this stage of the things you enjoy and the areas where you excel. Start thinking about how you can put these to good use, and possibly earn some money from them.

Once you begin work, think about what you enjoy and what you might want from the future. Do you want your boss’s job? Do you want to work in a different industry? Do you want a different role entirely? Work hard, look for opportunities and think outside the box to help you achieve your goals.
