Deciding your direction
It’s difficult sometimes to decide what course to do or which career path to take when you’ve had a period of time out of work, we know how hard this can be which is why our Development and Skills Officers (DSOs) have developed a session around exploring this with you.
We can chat about what your experiences have been like in work, what you enjoy doing/ have a passion for and what you would like to do for a career. We can help you to form ideas and the plans you might need to achieve your goals.
Sometimes it takes a little time to decide what you would like to do for a job, sometimes you don’t know what best suits you and you don’t know where to start. We can show you some tools to help you make decisions including thought provoking questions to get you thinking about what you really want to achieve and walk you through some great online resources. Between the DSO and the participant they’ll find the best starting point and that’s when the practical skills start, like getting your CV up to scratch, talking you through some practical job searching tips, getting you prepared for interviews and looking at volunteering options.
All these steps can help you on your journey to achieve your goal, whether it be to go back in to work, access a training course/get back in to learning or to be able to have the skills to job search independently.
