Career Decision Making Process

You are here

The career decision-making process can be broken down into five steps, each important on its own and leading into the next. Career decision-making is ongoing and something you will be doing throughout your career. With new experiences and at new stages of your life, you may find yourself beginning this process again. The important piece is to continue to reflect on your direction, how it fits with who you are and to make informed decisions on the direction that is best for you. Each of these steps is further discussed through the links provided below.

  2. Identify and Research Options
  3. Evaluate and Prioritize
  4. Take Action and Try Options
