Succeed in the workplace

8 Summary

This week you’ve had the chance to look further into the work that interests you and to consider different ways of working, which may enable you to progress with your goals. You may well find that instead of having fewer questions now, you have more. This is to be expected when you start digging into a new area of work, so see this as a positive step in your career planning process.

Next week you’ll be looking at the value of different types of work experience.

You should now feel that you can:

  • evaluate the opportunities available to you in developing your career
  • identify sources of information on finding work
  • consider alternative options to full-time employment
  • think of ways to keep motivated.
