What if I am still at school or college?
Your school or college are responsible for giving you careers advice. Ask them to put you in touch with an adviser who works in the school or college.
Before you see an adviser
Think about what questions you would like to ask and what you want to find out. It doesn't matter if you don't know what you want to do; we can help you to decide. Bring details of any grades you have. If you don't have any qualifications we can still help you. If you have a CV, try to bring a copy with you. If not, we can help you create one.
