Your career starts with getting to know yourself: your skills, abilities, values, interests, goals and preferences will influence the decisions about your future. This is a process that can take many turns and with today’s demanding and changing work environment, planning and preparation are essential. There are four principal stages of career preparation:
- Self-assessment: who am I?
