Summary
School is over and it's time to go out and get your dream job-but what is that, exactly? Determining a career choice, or a career path, is one of the hardest things to do in life. This video helps new graduates and beginning jobseekers clarify their professional goals and find jobs that fit their skills, passions, priorities, and long-term plans. Viewers learn how to use assessment tests-focusing on values, interests, or aptitude and achievement-to identify strengths and challenges; how to make the most of occupational classification systems that describe industries and labor markets in detail; how to obtain references and letters of recommendation that underscore past experience and future potential; and how to explore job training options, whether they involve on-the-job instruction, further academic coursework, or a combination of both.
