Uncertain of your career path? Career planning, also called career exploration, can lead you in the right direction and help you to reach your full potential.
A lot of people identify themselves with their careers, and not having the right match can lead to frustration and disappointment. Whether you’re a recent grad just starting out, someone re-entering the workforce or an experienced worker looking for a second career, YWCA Metro Vancouver’s career planning workshops can help you choose a career that’s right for you.
Steps in career planning
Career planning is made up of different steps that evaluate your:
- skills and interests
- work values
- personality type
Contact a WorkBC Employment Services Centre about free career planning workshops at the YWCA and in the community that go through these steps and more to help you develop your career direction. Career planning workshops also offer one-to-one career counselling, access to free career assessments, such as the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI), and information for exploring ideas for summer employment, work-study, transitional employment or volunteer opportunities.

What's your Myers-Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI)?
MBTI is one of the world’s most widely used personality assessment tools. It consists of a series of questions that help determine where you draw your energy from, how you process information, make decisions and relate to the outside world. The combination of these factors can have an effect on the type of careers and positions that are the best, or most natural, fit for you. Contact a WorkBC Employment Services Centre to learn more.
