Your Personal Vision is the path you build for yourself by focusing on your options and picking the ones you will enjoy the most. To build the best personal path, you need to know your natural abilities and your personality, and you may need to complete a career interest assessment. These steps will help you in job assessment and job selection. It helps to stop along the path every now and then to ask whether you have reached a Turning Point in the road. Recognizing that you are at a Turning Point will help you in career planning and, perhaps, in choosing a new career.
Eight principal factors combine in a strong Personal Vision. These factors are reflected in the Highlands Career Wheel. They are: Abilities; Skills; Interests; Personal Style; Family Background; Values; Goals; and Career Development Stage.
Turning Points are stops along the road that may suggest or require a new look at your Personal Vision. High school students reach a Turning Point when they engage in college counseling, or in college selection, or in career planning. College students face a Turning Point when they pick a college major or a college curriculum, or when they engage in career planning or chose a career. Job seekers are at a Turning Point when they take a job aptitude test, or when they apply to potential employers and make a job change.
