Make a Career Plan

A career plan is a list of the actions you will take to meet your career goals. A career plan can help you build a better life for yourself and your family.

Think about where you are and the things you know right now. Are you ready to apply for a job in your career path? Or do you need more education and training first? Make a career plan to help you know what you need to do to be ready to apply for better jobs.

A career plan is a plan or goals for your career.

There are four steps to make a career plan:

  1. Explore careers to find a career you want.
  2. Set goals to reach the career.
  3. Get training to prepare for your career.
  4. And learn more to help yourself succeed.

In each of those steps you will have short-term goals and long-term goals. You decide which activities to put in your career plan.
