Choosing Where To SpecialiseSpecialize
You can decide where your career will take you…
So you’ve already started looking into apprenticeships and traineeships, and you have an idea of where they can take you, great! You’re off to a good start. If you are still interested, now comes the fun part – choosing where you will specialize!
Align with your interests
The first step to choosing an apprenticeship that’s right for you is to understand your interests.
What excites you, motivates you and makes you leap out of bed in the morning? This is where you should start. It’s the things which excite you the most which act as the guide toward the field you will most enjoy working in.
Consider your skills
As part of an apprenticeship or traineeship, you will learn lots of new hard and soft skills – there will be technical skills which grow as you have time on the job, and other skills which come as a result of working life. Before you choose where to specialize, consider the skills that you already have – if you are a natural at building things, it makes sense to pursue a career in construction. Likewise, if you think you’re a pro at something special, this will be your best indication to pursue it as a career.
