Guides like the Bureau of Labor Statistics Occupational Outlook Handbook provide a rundown on lots of different careers, from architecture and engineering to sales jobs to entertainment and sports. This guide will let you know the skills you need to have; any required education or certifications; expected job growth; pay; and avenues for growth within the profession.
Also, seek informational job interviews for careers that hold an interest. How did they get their jobs? What skills are needed? “Better than any assessment or app, sitting down with someone, looking them in the eye, asking them questions and getting honest feedback is the best way to not only get your career questions answered, but is also a great way to build a team of career advocates,” says career advancement coach Lauren Milligan.
