Why is Career Planning Important?
Most people spend more time planning their vacations than their careers and lives. How much time and energy have you invested in figuring out what type of work best uses your skills and interests, or those of your children? The world of work has changed dramatically in the last decade. Career planning used to be a matter of getting an education, finding a job in a good company, showing up for work each day, and eventually retiring to a nice pension. For most people, those days are gone forever. Interest has become the most important trait used in occupational selection. Although personality is related to occupational choice, the strength of the relationship is not as strong as the relationship between career success and measured interest. Furthermore, due to the interplay between values, interest and ability it is only necessary to measure two of these since the third is always a function of the other two. Change your future and find the right path today!
