chapter  4
Effective careers information, guidance and career counselling: how it can help you
Pages 8

By now you should have a good idea about career planning in general and how it is relevant to you, and realise that learning and personal development are key. You will need to: • be aware that you must continually develop yourself throughout your career • take responsibility for managing your own learning and career development • develop skills to learn from all your experiences. You should have reflected on your skills and strengths and identified some weak­ nesses and obstacles that may impede the career path(s) you are planning to take. You will have found other people’s perspectives of your achievements and strengths really useful when you have come to discuss the reflection exercises with them that were included in Chapters 2 and 3.
