Choosing a career
Career decision-making in the 21st centuary can be a very intimidating, complex and difficult thing to do. Your choice of career largely determines your future life. Not only what you will do but also the kind of people you will associate with, where you will live, the income you will get and most important, how much lasting satisfaction you will get out of your life. When entering DUT you will find that there is a wide range of career options that you can choose from and some of which you may never have heard of.
Your challenge is to find the career that will best suit you. Sometimes matriculants, who appear all set for a specific career, change their minds once they enter University. This may be a result of the real demands of University curriculum, being too optimistic of their own personal qualities, and/or an increase in knowledge as to what the intended career entails. Prospective students, therefore, need to approach their career planning with care.
Career decision making will involve the following stages:
- Self assessment
- Exploring your options
- Making an informed decision
- Evaluating your choices
For more detailedinformation on career decision making, you may visit the DUT website, click on the “Prospective Students” icon or contact Student Counselling Department on 031- 3732766.
