Don’t know what you want to do?

If you don’t know what you want to “do”, you are not alone. Many students have no idea what to answer when asked this question. So whether you are in Year 7, Year 9 or even in Year 12, don’t despair.

Here are some suggestions of things to do to help you decide what career path you want to follow:

1) JobJump – Register now for a ” one stop shop”  for career + course information (including quizzes) for students & parents. Enter your non-school email address and use the password: brumbies .  Include your subjects and careers which interest you to receive information from JobJump tailored to your interests and needs.

2) Think about where you see yourself in 5 years time or 10 years time? Where are you and what are you doing? Do you want to work indoors, outside, be your own boss, not have to make decisions, have a lot of responsibility, work with computers, work with your hands, work with people, work on your own? Are you creative?

3) Ask yourself what you’re good at. Usually you will enjoy what you have the most talent in and where your strengths lie.

4) Would doing work experience help you make up your mind, especially if you are tossing up between two different careers?
