Career Choice: Navigating the Sea of Uncertainty
When choosing a career, it is important to be honest with yourself and think about what you want from your career.
Career choice should not be based on what others want or expect from you or even what your parents want. You need to make the decision that is right for you. Career choice should be based on your interests, skills, and personality traits. This will help you decide on a career that will give you the most satisfaction once you are in it.
Many people choose careers based on their interests and skills without considering their personality traits. For example, if someone has a great interest in computers but does not like working with teams or dealing with customers, then this person might not be happy as a computer engineer if it involved working with teams. However, if they enjoyed working with computers but did not enjoy working in an office setting, they could consider being a computer consultant who works remotely and deals primarily with clients over the phone or internet.
The first step in choosing a career is to figure out some possible careers that match your interests and skills. Then narrow down the list by considering your personality traits as well as any other factors like money and location requirements. This will help narrow down the list of possible careers so that when you research those careers further, it will be easier to find specific information about them rather than just general information about different careers which may include irrelevant information that could distract from relevant information about different jobs within those careers.
The next step is to research the different careers you are interested in. You can do this by looking at websites that give information about different careers, reading articles and books about them, talking to people who work in those fields, and asking yourself questions like:
What kind of education do I need?
What skills are needed?
What personality traits should I have?
How much money will I make and how much will my expenses be?
Do I want a job where I work most of the time or a job where I only work some of the time? (For example, if you like working with your hands or being outside but you want a job that pays well, you may have to consider doing something in an office if the outside job is not fulfill your salary requirements.)
What kind of environment would be best for me? (For example, if you’re very social but don’t like dealing with customers all day long then it might be best to find a position where you can interact with coworkers rather than clients.)
