Know all about career choice

Career Choice - There is a lot of pressure on adolescents to pick a career. Even at the tender age of thirteen or fourteen, teachers and parents sometimes put pressure on children to make up their minds. There is so much emphasis on selecting the appropriate subjects to take exams in that will help the career choice. School exams lead on to college and university and there are big decisions to make.

If the wrong choice is made, it needn’t be the end of the world. Students have been halfway through a university course and decided that it wasn’t for them. Many of them successfully switch courses to something that they are suited for. Doing a subject at school doesn’t really give an insight into what it will be like to study it in depth at college. After the studies are over, career choice is the next step. Some people are lucky and definitely know what they want to do from a young age. Others change their minds a hundred times.

It’s difficult to decide on a job and one doesn’t really know what it is like until one tries it. Young people are not encouraged to study something just for the fun of it anymore and so a lot of time and effort has been put into choosing subjects designed for the correct career path. Career advisors at school can help or talking with an adult who does the job. Some jobs appear to be very glamorous and it’s easy to forget that they are probably hard work as well. There is a downside to most jobs, even being a model or a business tycoon. Career choice should have enthusiasm; it’s no good selecting something purely on the grounds that it offers security. Very few careers offer cast iron security these days anyhow and it’s important to remember that a lot of hours are spent at work and no one wants to die of boredom.

It’s also vital to be realistic when planning ahead. A person standing at five foot five is unlikely to grab a career on the runway. A desire to be an astronaut won’t work out if claustrophobia is a problem. The best thing is to work to one’s strengths and most people know what they would be bad at, at least. Career choice is a matter of choosing something that will be enjoyed but is not an unrealistic dream, forever out of reach. Perhaps a hobby could be turned into a career. Everyone has at least one skill or interest that can be developed.
