Career planning is the continuous process of:
- thinking about your interests, values, skills and preferences;
- exploring the life, work and learning options available to you;
- ensuring that your work fits with your personal circumstances; and
- continuously fine-tuning your work and learning plans to help you manage the changes in your life and the world of work.
The career planning process has four steps:
Step 1: knowing yourself – skills, likes/dislikes, values
Step 2: finding out – exploring what is out there
Step 3: making decisions – comparing options
Step 4: taking action – working towards your goals
