What career is right for me?

Wow, this is a BIG question and there is no right or wrong answer.

If you are very lucky, then you will know exactly what you want to do. You might want to be a teacher or an engineer, or you might be certain that you want to be a doctor or a photographer. But if you have no idea at all, then DON’T WORRY, because most people your age are probably feeling the same!

It doesn’t matter whether you know what you want to do or not, the most important thing is to get as much information as possible to help you make the right decisions for you!

There are a couple of online resources that you can use to start thinking about what career to choose, and they are brilliant places to start when thinking about your future. You can explore what career journey is best for you using this useful National Career Service interactive quiz.

Before you can explore the career you’d be most suited for, it’s important to understand your strengths. The Buzz Quiz is a personality based test which will give you an idea of what skills and qualities you have.

Once you have identified these skills, The Spartan Test can highlight your top 10 potential apprenticeships, degree courses and careers that you’d be most interested in – which can help you when looking at all the information about university on our pages above!
