      • The sooner the better” is the perfect tagline for early career research. Deciding which profession is right for you can be a difficult process. But we are here to help you find the one that is best suited for you. Before you look for opportunities, take the time to do a good research of the position and industry to get a better understanding of the requirements, general responsibilities and, ultimately, its compatibility with your interests, values, strengths and personality. It is worth it, as this will ultimately save you time and money in the long run.
        1 Discover yourself
        It is very important to think about your interests, motivations, values and personality in the first stage of your career exploration. You can start by thinking of your interests: what subjects do you enjoy the most? What kind of jobs can you see yourself doing in the future?; your abilities, skills and strengths; what are you good at? What skills have you developed?; your personality: what type of personality do you have? What kind of roles or work environment would suit you? Last but not least your values: what is important to you? Is the career you have in mind aligning with your values?
        There are tools such as online questionnaires and personality tests to help you explore and identify your potential.
        2. Finding part-time jobs
        Before heading straight to work after you graduate, a part time job while you study could give you an insight to the real-world work environment. Current students can search for part time jobs and placements in Job and placement opportunities.
        3. Doing voluntary work
        Through making a positive contribution, volunteering could be a great way to develop your skills and experiences.
