Students often reflect on the above questions during their studies. You can see the future as an opportunity, but it also involves various choices and decisions that are not always easy to make.
For future career planning, it is important to be aware of your own interests, strengths and development needs. It is also necessary to identify changes and opportunities taking place in the labour markets. In this Taking Steps in my Career Path course you will develop your career planning skills. Career planning means
- skills to search for information
- improving self-assessment
- readiness to monitor the situation in society and in the labour markets
