Career Planning

Whatever stage you are in your career, it is always a good idea to have a career plan.  If you are working, consider asking the following questions:

These are just a few questions to get you thinking about planning for your career. If you are just starting out in your career, you also want to be thinking about these questions, as the answers will help you when making your decision about what kind of companies to target.  Of course, this will occur after you have completed your research on industries and companies that interest you.

If you need help creating a career plan, check out resources like the University of Waterloo’s Career Manual or consider hiring a Career Coach or go to your local libraries’ Career Resources Section and ask a librarian for help.  Take advantage of resources on the internet such as The Transitions Program’s Career Articles and Blog.  Go to the Career Development page for information about assessments and tools.
