Remember, there is no one right way! Pathways to careers are made through exploring, experiencing and working in varied roles in the areas that interest you, and observing others in the workplace.
Think about where you’d like to be in two, five, even ten years time. Sit down and create a plan of how you might get there. Why not take inspiration from people you admire.
