    Create a Career Goal

    Using the goal form, create your own career goal. Post your final career goal into the discussion forum. Review two peers’ career goals and determine the following:

     

    • Is the goal specific?
    • Are relevant skills included?
    • Is a specific job title or industry listed?
    • Are non-negotiable items detailed?

    My Goal Sheet
    Developing a career goal is a great way to take charge of planning your career and a useful tool to manage your career effectively. Many individuals may not know how to develop a career goal; follow the steps below to help you determine where to start. There are a few steps that can be helpful in determining your career goal, which include: conducting a self-assessment, exploring industries and careers, and determining factors that are non-negotiable (e.g., geographic location, salary requirements, and health care benefits). The final step of goal setting is writing the first draft of your goal.

    Step 1: Self-Assessment

     

    • What do you do well?
    • What energizes you?
    • If you knew you could not fail, what would you do?
    • What high school subjects did you do well in?
    • What issues do family and friends come to you for help?
    • What do you receive praise for at work or home?
    • What are some of your greatest accomplishments?
    • What is something you do where you lose track of time when you are doing it?
