During your visit to the Careers Library we would also suggest that you look at a couple of very useful websites:

A very good website covering many careers related areas, including some good advice about making subject choices in S2. Choices S3 is aimed at S2 pupils making their subject choices.
the Careers and Learning Zones have two useful quizzes called 'Careerometer' and 'Courseometer' which ask you a series of questions to help you focus on possible career/course choice. There is also advice on writing CVs, vacancy websites, career planning etc
