The Career I Have Chosen - Is It Worth It?
Financial planning is an integral part of career planning. Individuals are more successful with their financial planning when they can see that the goals they have set for themselves have a greater chance in securing a strong financial future. In this module you will gain awareness and skills using examples of career information to plot financial pathways. You will also gain further knowledge and understanding of the use of labour market information and labour market trends that help you arrive at career decisions that make personal and financial sense.
Using the career choice drawn from prior career planning activities, you will be able to confidently demonstrate that the chosen career will likely provide future personal and financial satisfaction.
At the conclusion of the module you will be able to:
- Demonstrate that you have researched labour market conditions with regard to your chosen career and location; can list starting salaries and local placement rates; and understand the education or training needed and entrance requirements.
- Indicate with confidence that the chosen career appropriately meets your future personal and financial needs.
