These resources will help you identify your career interests. This is an important part of your career planning as the information can help narrow down career pathway ideas.

Career interests are different to abilities or skills. They are activities you enjoy doing or are interested in, which can then show where you could develop your skills and abilities.

Once you have a better idea of what your work type are, you can start to look at some job and training descriptions!
