9 Round-up

We’ve covered topics related to your current and future work in this section. Understanding your skills and interests and what you want from work is a good starting point and will help you in making decisions about your next steps.

Some options have been discussed such as developing your current job, changing your job or your job pattern, and becoming self-employed, but there may be others that particularly suit you. Use the suggested links in the Additional Resources section to better understand your wants and needs and consider your job goals – have these changed and if so, what are your priorities now?

Whether you make any changes or not, going through this section will ensure you’ve considered points that will help with planning for the next 5–10 years and the decision-making exercise will help you to weigh up options you may have identified.
