Find and read all the information available about the course and profession to make a well informed decision before considering this career path. Understand the commitment involved and be willing to make sacrifices to complete it successfully.

Being organised is essential. Establish what goals you want to achieve and set out how you are going to achieve them – don’t lose focus along the way.

When starting off, the right training and experience is far more valuable in the long run than an initial pay increase. Remember Rome wasn’t built in a day so patience is essential, you will eventually get there.

Social?
Social 
The Social person's interests focus on some aspect of those people in their environment. In all cases the social person enjoys the personal contact of other people in preference to the impersonal dealings with things, data and ideas found in other groups.

Many will seek out positions where there is direct contact with the public in some advisory role, whether a receptionist or a counsellor. Social people are motivated by an interest in different types of people, and like diversity in their work environments. Many are drawn towards careers in the caring professions and social welfare area, whilst others prefer teaching and other 'informing' roles.
