Career Planning is consciously taking advantage of development opportunities to achieve career fit.
WHY do I need Career Planning?
Responsibility in managing one's own career contributes to self-confidence. Career Planning will guide you to acquire the appropriate skills & develop your own talent to reach your fullest potential. It is also needful to help you stay competitive in this changing world and market conditions. Career Planning will finally get you "job-ready" upon completing your education.
WHEN do I need to start Career Planning?
As early in life the better especially those with special talent. When you are in Form 3 (Year 9) will be the most appropriate time to start thinking of your career. This is because in Malaysia, you will have to decide whether to enter Arts Stream or Science Stream in Form 4 (Year 10). This will be the most important decision you have to make which will sets your education and career direction.

The first step to get started is to know your career interest.

In the world of globalisation today, you will find that the choice to subjects and majors that you can study are wide and far ranging. Students today are spoilt for choice when it comes to choosing what they want to pursue.
Many make the mistake of choosing some program which is not of their interest but those into which they have been pressured.
Courses make up the most important element in your career pathway. You will have a choice of taking a course with one major or a course which gives you a wider range and the option to combine majors giving you a better knowledge base which will help you to be more diversified thereby more marketable when you graduate.
Here are some guides to some of the courses that are available. Note that however, there are many more courses which are available either in Single Majors or in combination of Double Majors or Double Degrees such as Law and Commerce, Business with Science amongst others.
