Jobs & Careers


Skills are often used to perform tasks in everyday life, you’ve probably got lots of skills you’re not even aware of. Finding out what your particular skills are can help you think about what you’d like to study at school, college or University, or what jobs you’d be best suited to do. They’re a good place to start.

Careers Wales have a really nifty tool here to help you figure out what you’re best at.

Most people have ideas about what they want to be in the future but do you know how to get into your dream job, is it realistic and would it really suit you?

It’s perfectly normal to be unsure about what career you would really like, quite often the job you start with is not the career you end up with. It can take time to find your vocation and you might change careers a number of times throughout your life.

College can sometimes set you on the right path for a career – Cardiff & Vale College have some great courses. If you want to find out a bit more about how education can help you get a job, head over to our very helpful section.

Getting a Job

A good place to start is the Universal Jobmatch — where you can look for jobs in your area, and you can search Google for jobs, too.

Careers Wales also has lots of handy stuff about getting a job and being employed, and you can call them to get in touch with a careers advisor.
