Career Pathways

Which career pathway will you take to achieve your career goal?

In Blu Ripples previous Blog, Making the Dream Happen (Part 2), one encouraged you to define your rough idea into a SMART Goal both in the big picture and the first small step capacity.

Assuming you have undertaken the first step it is now the appropriate time to determine your path.   Using the example outlined in Part 2, Oncologist, one perceives that you believe that there is only one way to achieve this outcome.  Well I am here to tell you there is always more than one way it depends on how hard we look and investigate our options.

Did one get your attention?  Yes there is always another way to achieve your dreams!

The first step in becoming an Oncologist is to attain your Bachelor of Medicine and then specialise – correct?  Well not necessarily!

What if you don’t get into the Bachelor of Medicine – then what?  What other options are open to you? Read More

There is an old saying that states “that what we think we want to do (an usually study for) when we leave school is not necessarily what we will end up doing when we are 25, 35, 55 or beyond for that matter”.

Careers Counselling is about helping you identify and explore what YOU want to do with your professional life not what others perceive you SHOULD do.

Why is this so important?  Well in my opinion there are two (2) good reasons: –

1. Your career helps you achieve your dreams; and
2. 30-40 years is a long death sentence if you are stuck in a job or profession you hate – it literally sucks the life out of you instead of providing inspiration and motivation.
