Find out which jobs suit your likes or interests. 

As you move through secondary school, you have lots of exciting decisions to make about the route you want to take.

You might be navigating through your subject choices, or deciding what you want to do when you leave school. Either way, your future is in your hands. 

But don't worry. My World of Work is here to support you as you find your path – whatever stage you're at in your journey.

Find out about me

Figuring out what you enjoy doing can give you a headstart when it comes to making important decisions about your future career.

Try the About Me quiz and see which jobs suit your likes and interests. Your results will be saved in your account when you register.

The quiz is the first step in developing your Career Management Skills. They deal with four areas: self, strengths, horizons and networks. 

They'll get you ready to make those big decisions, realise your potential and find a job that you enjoy.

As you move through school and beyond, we can help you develop and build on these skills.

Get help from careers advisers in school

My World of Work is part of Skills Development Scotland (SDS) – Scotland’s careers service.

There’s an SDS careers adviser based in your school. 

They’re on hand to give information, advice and guidance on what you’d like to do when you leave school - and the different routes you can take to get there.

You’ll have group sessions with your careers adviser at key stages in school, which will help you develop your Career Management Skills. 

They’re available for drop-in sessions too.
