As helpful as all the content here on is, sometimes you will have some more specific questions about careers and your options than we can answer in a blog post or video. If you find yourself in this situation then there are a few different things you can do to get answers to your questions, like speak to the career adviser at your school or college.

However, we know that not all schools and colleges have a dedicated career adviser and if that’s the case in your school then don’t worry, there is another way to speak to someone who can answer your careers questions and help you to formulate ideas and plans.

The National Careers Service is a government organisation that provides amazing one-to-one advice, guidance, and help in relation to young peoples careers. They are available to contact via webchat, phone, email, and text, and when you do contact them using any of these methods, you will be connected to an experienced adviser who is there to listen to all your questions and offer as many ideas and answers as possible.

So whether you’re a young person about to leave school and need help deciding on the next step, or are about to finish college and want some help with creating a plan to get the job of your dreams, the National Careers Service Advisers are there for you, free of charge.
