The first step is to identify your job or career goal. Do you want to advance in your current occupation or do you want to change careers? What current skills and education do you have? What skills do you need to get where you want to go?
One of the best ways to answer these questions is through an assessment. The One-Stop Career Centers across Massachusetts offer several assessment tools that can help you identify your skills and interests. At the One-Stop Career Centers, you can also learn about job openings and how you can prepare for the job you want. To find a career center near you, visit www.mass.gov/careercenters or call 1-877-US 2 JOBS (1-877-872-5627).
