Now that you have developed a list of your interests, skills, and work values It’s time to bring them together and think about how you could apply these in different careers.
Start by summarizing the main themes that came out of your self-assessment. In addition to the themes from your self-assessment exercises don’t forget to add things like:
Themes from Interests, Skills, and Work Values
Personal qualities | Do you enjoy…
Employment qualities | A dose of reality...
Workday qualities | Fit with lifestyle..
Once you have a list of at least 8 Satisfying Occupational Characteristics start thinking of careers that incorporate these themes. Share the list with a friend or family member to get additional ideas about careers. At this point, it’s just brainstorming—so write down everything that comes to mind.
