Effective career planning requires you to gather information about yourself and about job and career
possibilities. Once you have identified your interests, values, abilities and skills, you will be ready
to match this information with educational and occupational choices. The career development skills you
acquire will be helpful in building and attaining future career success. You can revisit any and all
of these steps at anytime to assist with any career transition you may be facing. It is important to
remember that every experience you have provides you with opportunities to acquire new skills, improve
on present skills and to learn more about yourself and the world around you. Whether the learning occurs
in a classroom or in the real world, it is valid and important learning that takes place. It can be
helpful to periodically update your lists of skills, values, interests and abilities as well as to maintain
an up-to-date resume.
