Example text

You are not, therefore, seeking the single ‘right’ job for you; the ideal exists in only the very rarest of cases. Your task is to identify that broad range of jobs in the market place which reasonably fits your criteria. The combination of factors which affect your choices now is unique to this time in your life. It follows that any choice made now may need to be reviewed at some later stage in your working life. In other words, the business of career planning is a process in which you will need to keep involved as you gain new skills, have new life experiences, and as your circumstances change.

The assumption is often made that personal circumstances place limitations on career/job options, but perhaps it is not always so. Try to discuss—with someone who knows you well—just how limiting these factors really are. To what extent are your circumstances accommodated in your current job? 15 Personal circumstances Summing up We have now explored your skills, interests, values, temperament and circumstances. How do these affect your career options? 17. My ideal job You should now have a template to use in weighing up broad options, in exploring specific types of work and types of employer.

Alternatively, you may have decided there are aspects of academic life which do not fully engage your talents and interests. You may wish to transfer some of your academic skills to another setting to develop your career in a different context. The purpose of this book is not to persuade you to pursue a career in any particular field but to enable you to see that you have a variety of options for your future career. The exercises are designed to help you to weigh up the pros and cons of these options and to reach a balanced decision on the route you want to take now.
