We all get asked this question at least once a year: ‘What are your career plans?’ It can be quite difficult to answer for those who haven’t actively been thinking about their career aspirations. Thinking about who you are and what you expect from your career is critical when it comes to understanding your career aspirations. It can give you valuable insights regarding your career interests and help you make informed decisions. For this exercise to be effective, you need to ask yourself the right questions and answer them honestly. That is why we have compiled a list of questions that will help you get a preliminary understanding of your career aspirations.
Here are some questions for you to reflect upon. To make the most of these reflection questions, sit in a calm, comfortable space, avoid minimising your emotions and thoughts, be honest with yourself, write down the answers if possible and find recurring patterns.
Let’s get into the questions now!
Note that these questions are there just to get you started. The answers to these questions are likely to evolve as you grow up or enhance your self-awareness. So, revisit these questions every few months to refine your understanding of your career aspirations. Once you gain a basic understanding of your career aspirations, you can delve deeper into specific career options.
