Questions to help you choose the right career - Deepstash

Questions to help you choose the right career

  • What can I do better than others? Think about what you're really good at, and how you could use the skills where you have an edge in order to get results.
  • What problems do I want to solve? This question is productive because it helps you identify your values and the issues you care about, without confining you to a narrow role.
  • How do I want to be known? What you do for a living often informs other people’s impressions of you—as well as your own self-image. For example, if you want people to think you’re a helpful, trustworthy, caring person, you might want to consider a job in a classic “helping” field, like being a kindergarten teacher.
