I am exploring a job I might like to do
Finding the information to help
- Check out the job or career itself – what it offers, the qualifications and skills that you need and how the job market in that sector is doing. You can check out how jobs are predicted to grow by trying the Careerometer.
- Do the Pre-16 Skills Map or HE Skills Map (post 16) so you can look at your skills against what a job requires. Do you see any gaps? How can you fill them? What qualifications or training do you need?
- Do the icould buzz quiz which is a fun way to in under five minutes, discover: your strengths and what makes you tick and get an idea of a few job areas that might suit you.
