Lesson 1: Lesson – Section 7: The Vocational Action Plan Assignment – Job Seeker’s Toolkit
Putting your research to work for you.
In this module, you explored a job you’re interested in, and, in your discrepancy analysis, you compared the requirements of that position to your skills, abilities, and liabilities. Hopefully the job you’ve analyzed has proven to be a good fit for you. If not, you should move to a new job and start the analysis process over again until you find a position that feels right. Once you’ve found the job you’d like to pursue, your next step is to create a vocational action plan.
Creating a vocational action plan is a big step towards achieving your ultimate goal of employment. The action plan will help you maintain self-awareness, be realistic about goal setting, and break down your required progress into achievable steps.
