career is extremely difficult. What can help you make the right
Every person at
the age of 14 to 16 has to make an extremely stressful decision,
to choose his or her own career. You might be wondering what the
difference is between a career and a job. Basically a job is
something you do, but don't expect to continue doing forever. A
career is what you hope to do for a long time or even for your
entire working life. Choosing a career is a difficult and
challenging task: the decision once taken will influence your
future life. There are, of course, a lot of examples when people
have changed their career paths in their twenties, thirties and
even forties but, of course, it is better to make the right
choice at the very beginning. The earlier you decide on what
profession is interesting and rewarding for you, the more you
can achieve during your lifetime.
Choosing a career
is a challenging task indeed. It is all about finding the
perfect match between your personality, interests, and skills.
On the one hand, modern society, with its hundreds of
professions and jobs, presents a vast range of future job
opportunities. Industry and business, farming, science and
education, medicine, service, arts and journalism are just a few
professional fields a young person can specialize in. On the
other hand, modern society with its crises, unemployment and
inflation, makes a poor choice of profession a really bad
mistake. You can choose a profession you really like, and face
problems when looking for a job. Or you can find a job you like,
but it will be underpaid. Besides, a young person's parents
usually have their own ideas of what career path to choose. Some
parents are more democratic and let the child determine his
future by himself. Some are oppressive and overprotective and
try to force the child to make this or that career choice. In
this case, they often try to compensate for their own dreams
which have failed and the chances they have missed. Sometimes
they see their child is gifted in some field and try to persuade
him to choose this profession irrespective of the fact if he
likes it or not.
In spite of all
the problems mentioned above, the choice has to be made. To make
it easier for the young people, there is some professional
advice. It's best for the young man to start this process as
early as possible, ideally in the tenth form. You should
determine if you would like to continue in higher education, or
to learn a trade and look for a job. It's up to the person to
decide, but you should remember that to get more chances, you
should strive for higher education which enables you to be
qualified for skilled labour. You should determine what you
might like to study or major in at college. You might like to
try some of these career assessment tests to help with this
step. You will surely also get suggestions from family, friends,
and high school teachers and guidance counsellors. You also have
to consider the demand for a particular career in the labour
market. Choosing a career where there are limited job
opportunities can greatly increase the challenges you will face.
