Jobs & Careers

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.

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.
