Planning your next career steps

Zoom in

Once you have a specific job in mind then you should learn as much as possible about it.

Speak to someone already doing the job, read through job descriptions and look online to see what people are saying.

Hit the mark

Once you’ve made your mind up and done your research, you should start working towards your goal.

There are many things you can do to prepare, like job shadowing, taking on projects at work, volunteering or doing training courses.
