Make Choices

Compare and Evaluate Your Options

You're not just choosing a school program, you are choosing a career. Most important is that your career (and the education that leads to it) should be a good reflection of who you are. Avoid ending up in a career or school program where you have to change too much of yourself.

These resources will provide some options for a structured approach to career decision-making and educational planning.

  • Our own free Career Planning Micro-Course, is a self-directed course to walk you through the career planning, includes downloadable modules and videos. Module 4 is dedicated to evaluating options and setting goals.
  • The Choice Questionnaire, part of the Career Decision Making Difficulties site, is useful when you have it narrowed down to a few options but need to compare and decide which is most suitable.
  • ALIS* has several helpful publications, which can be downloaded for free, including: Career Planner - Choosing an Occupation and Guide for Midlife Career Moves.
  • CAREERinsite walks you through the 5 steps of the career planning process (this is run by the Alberta Learning Information Service there is no equivalent in Ontario).
