Plan Your CareerOCCUPATIONAL WORK CAPACITY CAPABILITIES 6/6
The average working career of the Finns is 36 years. The career holds many changes. Changes can be related to changes in the professions and work, or to changes in personal life.
Changes are, for example
Transition from studying to working life
Changing between jobs and tasks
Returning to working life from family leave
Acquiring a new profession
All career changes require so-called career management
Career management means that you…
- identify your strengths and career goals
- identify your professional skills
- identify the opportunities and limitations of working life
- are aware of your own development needs
- are able to utilize sources of information and support, for example in career planning, or finding a study place or a job
- are able to set goals that are suitable for you and pursue them persistently
