Know Yourself Well

The right career choice? It’s the one that resembles you. Reflect on life and experience it: take the time to discover who you are.

3 objectives

  • Explore your skills, interests, values and personality traits, but also your limits and your needs.
  • Keep reminders of what is important to you by organizing this information.
  • Validate your findings and learn more about yourself by living new experiences.

How to meet these objectives

  • Use lists, inventories, self-awareness tools.
  • Talk with friends, parents, teachers, and colleagues to get a picture of who you are from their points of view.
  • Recall past experiences: jobs, team projects, hobbies and commitments. Take stock of important points: what you learned about yourself in those situations.

A few tips from Catherine Leduc, Advisor

Catherine Leduc

“Take this step seriously and invest the required energy and time. You will gather lots of information about yourself. Organize it and keep only the most important. You will likely change as you live various experiences: re-evaluate yourself on a regular basis.”

Catherine Leduc, Career Management Advisor
