Synopsis of Unit V--Career Planning

I choose this unit because it has helped me to recognize what my future should be and I how I should continue life after high school. Also I had helped me to recognize my potential s in different way. For example by taking the test about skills had helped me to create my own resume and job opportunities.

To further strength my knowledge I did many researches based on this unit and I summarised the steps of career panning as follow.

The career planning process is comprised of four steps: Self-Assessment, Career Exploration, Match and Action. You can attempt to go through them on your own or you can seek the services of a career development professional who will help facilitate your journey. The way you decide to undertake this process—with or without assistance—is less important than the amount of thought and energy you put into it. Self-Assessment

During this first step you will use a variety of tools to gather information about yourself. You will learn about your Interests, Realities, Personality Type, Work-related Values and others related topics. Career Exploration

Explore the occupations that appear to be a good fit based on the results of your self-assessment. Explore other occupations that interest you.
Research the industries in which you would like to work
Match: - During this phase of the career planning process you will decide which occupation is the best fit for you based on what you now know about yourself and the occupations you've researched. Identify the occupation in which you are most interested and one or two alternatives on which to fall back if, for any reason, you can't pursue your first choice. Action: - Now it's time to put together a plan to reach your goals and start moving forward. First write a career action plan. This will serve as a guide that will help you reach your goals. Identify your long-term and short-term goals.
