Don’t wait,  do it now;

It will be Christmas before you know it.
The university college application deadlines follow quickly after that.
And then you’re into exam mode…

Open Day season is now running so;

  • Start with what you think interests you most,  and review how it relates to your strengths/talents and what you’d like to be good at and/or skills you’d like to acquire – if you’re not sure what you’d prefer ask your family, friends, take interest/aptitude tests, talk to your Guidance Counsellor
  • Decide if you prefer an applied/career focused  or a theoretical/academic course – broad open ended or definite
  • Find out where you can do it
  • Check out their Open Day website for scheduled talks & tours – Plan your day to ensure you get the most from it
  • Organise your own visit if your school isn’t doing one – it’s up to you
  • Review the online course info and jot down anything you’re unsure about – you will want these to be answered at the open day
  • Share your insights with your family & friends to clarify your feelings about your choices

To help you do this there are many course & career websites – save yourself time and be very specific when using  unibrowse, qualifax, eunicas, & careersportal, onetonline, etc

Do yourself a favour, get stuck into the task now.  Get informed & set yourself a definite goal.  It’s time to get ready.

You’ll feel better, more determined and in control of your own destiny
