This stage is all about evaluating your own interests, ideas, experiences, skills, and values. It includes learning about yourself by taking part in developmental activities inside and outside your degree, gradually developing more self-knowledge, self confidence, and resilience and asking yourself questions such as:
- What do I enjoy?
- What skills do I have?
- What would I want in a job of the future?
- Do I have a clear career plan, or do I need to find out more?
- What kind of working environment would suit me?
As well as attending many of the Careers & Employability Service's events and benefitting from the support available to all students through the service and in departments, there are a variety of activities across the College that you can do to start evaluating your options – we've listed some examples below.
