AS CONFUCIUS said, “Choose a job you love, and you will never have to work a day in your life”.
But finding the right career can be fraught.
Young workers are tipped to have nine jobs in a lifetime and work longer as the age of retirement is raised.
Also, technology has made redundant hundreds of lower-paid, lower-skilled jobs, while creating new roles across the nation.
It’s a revolutionary landscape to find work, much less a job that is satisfying, well paid and fulfilling.
Making the best career choices involves knowing yourself; what you like (your interests), what you are good at (your skills and abilities) and what is important to you (values).
Success is often about figuring out what you like and are good at and doing more of it. The good news is, help is at hand.
