What you will learn on this page:
- Find out all you can about the job or career that interests you. In Careerpilot you will find information about a range of job sectors to help you.
- Explore different job profiles on the National Careers Service site
- Think about the job or career itself – what it offers, the
qualifications and skills that you need and how the job market in that
sector is doing – especially in times of recession.
- Ask your school if they provide career software programmes you can
use to help you research. You can also find more information in Where to look for further information on jobs and careers.
- Do the Careerpilot Profile Builder so
you can look at your skills against what a job requires. Do you see any
gaps? How can you fill them? What qualifications or training do you
- It’s always worth discussing your plans with someone. This could be a
parent/carer, teacher, tutor or a careers adviser. You can access an adviser through the National Careers Service for Young People.
- Remember it is always worth having a look at more than one job and
more than one job sector, just in case your first idea doesn’t work out.
