Your values, strengths and interests shape who you are. When you base your life and work—your career—on these elements, you can create a career path that feels right for you. Career planning is a way of looking at your life and work that guides you to make decisions and move in the direction you want.
Talking with a career counsellor is a good way to begin the career planning process. Career counsellors can connect you with many education, training and employment opportunities.
For First Nations People
Ask about career counselling through your band or through the Aboriginal Skills and Employment Training Strategy (ASETS) provider in your area.
