In the world of work, life can be very complicated. Good qualifications are very much the key to many different types of professions and careers. But how do we decide which career will suite us? What career option will be suitable to our needs or what career path should we follow?

Its incredible how many people just 'fall' into a job or career. Of course some don't need any careers guidance at all. They've know what they want to do since they were 10! But for many it's just guess work and luck (or not) until we find something suitable. Not great when a careers can last for 40 years or so.

Need careers help?

So how do we choose which career will be best? The Careers Guidance Directory can help. It is split into different sections looking at private careers advisers, National government organisations such as the National Careers Service, video and online providers.

There is a growing number of private careers advice practitioners and Careers Coaches available to use as people seek help in making sense of the myriad of career opportunities available to them. Many are locally based and will offer their services on that basis, often not just to individuals, but also to local schools and colleges.

Some may offer Psychometric Testing as part of their services. Psychometrics is a process that has been developed from Psychology. In broad terms Psychometrics is a series of tests that provide an understanding to the tester of an individual's strengths and weaknesses. This can be a useful way to get a clearer idea of a potential ideal career match for them.

Video and online careers providers are growing in popularity as a medium for careers guidance. For many there is not the possibility of getting access to someone face to face, or indeed may not even want to. For them the flexibility of online interaction or the utilisation of relevant videos is a far better proposition.
