Exploring and Planning for Your Career

[intro music] Exploring career options and planning for
your career is exciting and rewarding. Whether you’re new to the workforce or have
years of experience, Illinois workNet has the tools to help you create your roadmap
to success. So, when you are ready to make a career move,
you’ll be able to make an informed decision. Stay up-to-date on career trends and opportunities. Follow us on social media and subscribe to
our news and updates. Read our career planning articles that cover
the latest topics and include resources and materials such as videos, infographics, and
worksheets. We’ll keep you updated with the most current
trends and career opportunities. Next, explore jobs that match your skills
and interests. If you’re new to the job market, you can complete the skills and interests
surveys. If you already know your career goal, you
can skip this step. These surveys can help you find jobs based
on the skills and interests you have and will develop. Working in a job that interests you can be
just as important as your earnings potential. Plus, you can save them to your Dashboard
to access any time. Then learn what it takes to get qualified
for the career fields or self-employment options that interest you. If you’re an employer, you can use the Careers,
Wages, and Trends tool to develop job descriptions, research wages, and plan for workforce growth. As a job seeker, you can explore options for
careers and see their wages, trends, education, and training requirements and other related
information. When looking at your options, think about
where you might want to live and work, how much you want to earn, and what you could
start doing now to plan for your future success. Bookmark your favorite careers and return
them from to dashboard. In addition, the Employment 101 tool guides
you through this process and creates an interactive plan. Begin creating your personal roadmap, save
your plan and return to it any time. Sign into your Illinois workNet account and
start exploring your options. [music]
