How to choose a career?
Here are some of the things you should consider while choosing your career:
1. What are your interests and hobbies?
One of the first things you might want to do is think of what interests you, what you like to do in general or what are your hobbies or the activities you have shown you are good at. Don’t stress too much to match them with a career at this point. Just think what attracts you and what would you do as work and it wouldn’t feel as work. Do you have a dream career? Have your ideas changed in time or you are still dreaming of the same thing since being a kid?
2. How do your interests match with real life careers?
Think of the subjects you enjoyed in school and the people you looked up to while growing up. What careers have attracted your attention? What kind of job would suit the abilities you have or in what direction you want to build your skills. For instance if you like to travel, why not consider being a flight attendant, travel blogger or work in a tourism agency? Bring your ideas in the real world!
3. Consider your experience and skills?
Think of the experience you have gathered up to this point and the skills you can demonstrate throughout this experience. If you are fresh out of school think of the areas in which you excelled and any kind of skills you could have build, e.g. team work. Why not consider your interpersonal skills as well. Do you like interacting with other people or are you a shy and quiet person? Would you fancy a front job or a back office position?
4. How about money?
Of course it is important to be passionate about what you do and make a choice that you support with all your heart but you sure that will offer a decent living and pay the bills? The financial situation is the sensible point when choosing a career and is probably the area where most people find themselves in need to compromise. Think of your life expectations and what are your wants and needs and decide on something to suit these.
5. Explore your opportunities
Once you’ve settled to a direction try and check all the prospects that are available to you and that would suit your abilities at this point but also your plans in climbing the ladder further. Try to be as objective as possible. It wouldn’t be a bad thing if you’d involve people close to you either and get their opinions.
6. Constant development
Think of how open you are in regard to continuing your education during your career and improving yourself on a constant basis. Is this something you’d fancy or you are more interested in practical careers that don’t require so much learning after obtaining the degree.08 Mar, 2015
