Career Information

Michelle Obama made an excellent observation when she said “Now I think the most useless questions an adult can ask a child – What do you want to be when you grow up? As if growing up is finite. As if at some point you become something and that’s the end. Our career journey stories reflect that people land in careers that they never expected when they were younger.  Career guidance information therefore helps us make a series of lifelong decisions; from the schools we choose, high school subjects, university majors, internships etc. At times, the choice is not ours and we go for the opportunities that are easily available, but career guidance information makes meandering and navigating decision making a little bit easier. Below is a list of career guidance information sources where you can search for the career of your dreams.
