Explore your strengths and interests
When considering career options, it is always important to consider both your strengths and your interests. What is it that interests and excites you? What is it that you think you’ll be motivated to get out of bed for each morning? And importantly, does this match with your personal and academic strengths?
While making decisions about what to study in the senior years of high school and at university, reflect on your experiences both at school and in your extracurricular activities outside of school.
Think about what you’re currently studying. What have you found positive or negative about each study area? What do you look forward to? Which topics interest you? Which subjects do you find easy to stay on top of, and in which subjects do you procrastinate studying for? Do you like group work or do you prefer working independently? Are you good at something in particular? Understanding and recognising your strengths and interests goes a long way to helping you make good choices about your future course and career options.
