6. What next for your career?

Sometimes we know exactly what we want from our next job and have a good idea how to get there, but a lot of the time this can be unclear. If you are considering which jobs would suit you next, why not check out our career guides covering roles across 34 different sectors? Here you can find out what that job is, if it’s right for you, what career progression could look like as well as estimated salaries, relevant courses and links to relevant jobs to apply to.

The National Careers Service also has two different skills assessments that can help you figure out what career is right for you based on your skillset.

  • Skills health check: a set of quizzes and activities designed to help you explore your skills, interests and motivations.
  • Skills Assessment asks you to think about the type of work you want to do. It takes 5 to 10 minutes. At the end, you’ll get a summary of job groups that might interest you based on your answers, for example creative careers or working in healthcare.
