What to do before a careers guidance session

You are welcome to come along and simply talk without doing anything beforehand, and that's fine. But if it helps, you might want to spend some time thinking about these things before you come to a careers guidance session:

  • What have you enjoyed and disliked so far in your degree? Not just the subject areas, but also the ways of working and types of projects you've done.
  • What have you enjoyed and disliked so far in any part-time or voluntary work you've done?
  • How do your friends describe you?
  • If you could have any career in the world, what would it be?
  • What are the aspects of that career that you would enjoy?
  • What would be the worst job you could imagine doing?
  • What are the aspects of that job that you would dislike so much?
  • What are your values and motivations? Try these questionnaires (PDF , 49kb)
