Self Assessment

Want To vs. Should : (Who or what influences your career decisions)As a starting point, lets try a simple thought exercise. Think about three things in your life that may be career-related (such as choice of your major). Make a statement about each career-related choice: “I WANT TO…” Work, Finish school, have fun”I SHOULD…” Get a good job, plan for retirement, have fun Did you come up with different statements for “I WANT” and “I SHOULD” YesWere any of your statements the same for both itemsyes! Have fun! For students, career-decision making includes understanding this aspect of how you make choices. It is natural for your decisions to be influenced by people who are important in your life, but you can make better decisions if you understand these influences and know yourself.
