What do you want to be When You Grow Up?

Editor's review Page 2 of 2

Published 8 Nov 2011

[cont'd] probably enough information to tell you that a fairly detailed set of questions will need answering in order to get up and running. That said, the answers will apparently show you what careers you’re most suited to and what areas you need to brush up on to stand a chance with any you have your eye on.

The site does much more than just point you in the right direction and should be seen as social network for careers advice, mentoring and education. With a profile page set up you can access and add to a wide range of information about careers and particular companies along with tips on how to get into them and likely salary ranges.

You can also join in discussions with others in a particular field and form groups and generally build up a network of useful contacts. The mentoring aspect is also high on the list of priorities with this site and anyone signing up can take advantage of the wisdom available. Better still, if you’re lucky enough to enjoy waking up on Monday’s then become a mentor yourself and show people how it’s done.

Conclusion
If you’re stuck in a rut or facing the job jungle for the first time then you’ll need all the help you can get. This freebie might just give you the edge you need to get a job that you actually want to do.
