Step 1: Identity
Know your interests, personality, and your strengths.
God’s call on your life begins with understanding that you are fearfully and wonderfully made. What makes you feel alive, makes you laugh, your quirks, your frustrations, what you love, what you don’t love, your strengths, and even your weaknesses are all a part of God’s unique design of you. And, He intends to use you, all of you, for His Kingdom! Let us help you discover your best you so that you will be empowered to find work with great satisfaction and Kingdom value.
Explore your Options and Research Job opportunities
You’ve declared a major, but what does that mean for employment? Often we choose a major based on a job we have in mind, but your major opens you up to a plethora of jobs across many industries. If you are interested in learning about all the job opportunities open to you, check out “What Can I do with this major?” We recommend that you grab some paper and a pencil and use this tool to jot down the jobs that sound interesting to you.
Once you have your list of potential jobs, it’s time to do your research. It’s not uncommon for someone to choose a career based on a title, knowing very little about what the job actually entails. Candid Career allows you to “interview” thousands of professionals who are already in the field. These videos will give you more than job descriptions, instead you will get the ins and outs of specific jobs, clueing you in on whether a particular job would be a good fit for you.
