Choices along the way and jobs

During your studies and after completing your studies, you will have to make choices that may have an impact on your future career. But what can you do yourself to become more employable? And what can you do if you are not sure what you want? Don't worry - there is plenty of help available!

Luckily, your choices are not paramount

One question that has probably come up for you is, "What do I want?"

It is an important question, and the answer should help you frame the choices you make and the hopes you have for your future career path.

It is just not always possible to provide a particularly clear answer. The idea of ​​a direction to go in is enough to begin with. And you have already taken many steps in one direction by choosing to go to university.

 

You need to remember 4 things when making a choice:

  1. You become wiser of everything you do

    Of course, choices can be made that are "final" in the sense that you cannot un-choose them, but that does not mean that you have not become wiser the next time you need to make a choice again.

  2. Often it doesn't really matter that much

    Actually, the choice of elective courses or around internships in Denmark versus abroad does not have the great consequence very often.

  3. What is the "right" depends on the situation

    Of course, there may be contexts where one or the other will weigh higher, but it is entirely based on the individual case. Nothing general can be said about which choices are best.

  4. Trust yourself, your gut feeling and your research

    For example, you can research by talking to someone who does something you would like to do.
