How do I find careers that match what I like and what I’m good at?

If you still don’t know how what you enjoy and have a talent and passion for translates into a job, an online search engine will quickly point you to all sorts of test, quizzes and websites that help you explore career types.

Professional careers counsellors are an obvious source of advice and information, but friends, teachers, lecturers and family friends already know you well, and might have useful ideas and contacts too.

Even if you think you know what job you want, there are careers out there that you haven’t even heard of, so it’s well worth exploring what’s on offer widely and thoroughly.
