Self-Assessment - Learning About Yourself

 

Self-assessment is the first step of the career planning process. It is the process of gathering information about yourself in order to make an informed career decision. Begin by asking yourself:

Who am I? What are your personal characteristics, your personality, activities you like, skills you may have and what do you value?

 

Using a Discovery Wheel, you can begin thinking about who you are and what you want. Ask yourself what each of the words located on the wheel means to you.

Learning more about your personality, your individual talents, and your "likes & dislikes" is important. After all, you don't want to start a career that will ultimately make you unhappy because it doesn't fit your personality.
