Career Decision Making Suddhodan Baidya 16 Mar 2011

2 Why do we need to make Career Decision Assessment?
Comparison between 80’s and 2011 One job Vs multiple jobs Comparison between Asia and Canada Education Vs Good Job In 80’s people used to chose their career for life...and it was 100% certain if you are good in your education you will definitely get a good job. What about now? Can people stay in one career for ever? Can higher education people definitely get a good job? We dont know what are the occupations there are in the market?

3 Stages of Career Decision Making

Establishing options, alternatives and plan B’s, information gathering, networking, reality checking Decision making (What I Do?) Evaluating options, mapping skills and attributes against actual roles, considering options and preferences, clarifying personal factors, making choices Plan implementation (When I Do) Applicant research, CV update and applications, preparing for assessments and interviews
