Identify your interests and skills

One of the first steps towards choosing a career path is to identify your interests and skills, Gala said. Take some time to think about what you enjoy doing and what you're good at. You can also take career assessment tests that can help you identify your strengths and weaknesses. Understanding your interests and skills can help you narrow down your career options and choose a field that aligns with your strengths.

Research career options

Once you have a clear understanding of your interests and skills, research different career options that align with your strengths. Look for job descriptions, responsibilities, and required qualifications. You can also talk to professionals in the field and learn about their experiences. This will give you a better idea of what to expect in a particular career and help you make an informed decision, the CEO added.

Consider the job market

It is important to consider the job market when choosing a career path. Look for fields that have a high demand for professionals and offer good growth opportunities. Research the salary range and job outlook for different careers to understand the earning potential and the potential for advancement. This information can help you make an informed decision about your future career.

Get practical experience

Finally, get practical experience in your chosen field. Internships, job shadowing, and volunteering can give you valuable experience and help you understand what it's like to work in a particular field. This can also help you build a network of professionals who can provide guidance and support as you pursue your career.
