Exploring Careers through Conversations
When exploring possible careers, it is often helpful to speak with those who are in your career fields of interest. Here are some possible questions that you could ask of someone in a particular career.
- What do you like about your job?
- What do you dislike about your job?
- If I were interested in pursuing this career, what advice would you give me?
- What does your job look like on a typical day?
- What qualifications or experience would I need to pursue this career?
- What is the most challenging aspect of your job?
- How did you know that you wanted to pursue this career?
- If you could go back in time, would you still pursue this career? Why or why not?
These are just a small example of questions that could be helpful for gathering information about a career. It would also be helpful to speak with more than one person in a given career field since experiences can vary from person to person. When you think about a career that interests you, what details are unclear to you? What would you need to know to feel comfortable pursuing a career or eliminating it from your list of possible careers? These questions can help steer you to next steps in your career exploration.
