Are you feeling confused about what you want to do with your career?


Are you finding yourself years into your career, and have started questioning if the chosen career is something you want to do for the rest of your life?


If you answered yes to any of the above two questions, relax you are not alone.  There are so many options that chosing a career can be so confusing that it can be overwhelming or paralyzing.


Don't ever be afraid of making the wrong decision.  If you know that you have made the best decision with the information you had at that time of your career ...that is all you can do right?  So give yourself a break.


I do suggest however for you to do your homework to narrow down the career choices to a few.  In the past blogs I have provided different tools, assessment tests, etc.


Below are a few more websites for you to place into your toolbox.

It contains the Mapping Your Future 10 Step Guide, a useful resource to use when developing a career plan, determining interests and skills, evaluating career options, and setting reachable goals.
