The aim of the program is to help you get good at using a method to clarify your thoughts, feelings, behaviors, and beliefs about what is important to you regarding your career. Since everyone's situation is different, the content of this example will probably not match your concerns. As you go along in the steps of the program, you'll have to fill in your own content.
The three major components of making career decisions are:
- Knowing our interests and abilities;
- Knowing the world of work, that is, being knowledgeable about specific requirements for the various positions in a given field, developing interviewing skills, resume writing, etc.
- Knowing our values and ideals that fill us with passion for our careers.
There are many programs, services and books that will help us answer our questions to numbers one and two. Responding to our questions in number three requires more personal and reflective thinking. As you make use of your powers of intuition and reflection to discover the practical meaning of your ideals, your own creative juices will emerge to connect your interests, abilities and knowledge of the world of work with your career ideals. The goal of this program is to help you match your work to who you are. You will make the career; the career will not make you.
