5 Tips to Help You Choose the Right Career

Too many people spend their lives slaving away to a job they hate. When choosing a career, it is important to choose one that you love. As Confucius said, “Choose a job you love, and you will never have to work a day in your life.” Here are five tips to help you find the best career for you:

Do You Have Special Talents?

Do You Have Special Talents?

Identify the talents that you already have. For example, if you are an excellent writer research careers such a journalism or public relations. If you are inventive and a great mathematician, look into business or accounting careers.

What qualifications are needed to obtain the career you want? Do you need to go to college? Some careers require a four year bachelors degree, while others require a masters or Ph. D. If you’re looking into a medical career take a look at all of your options. You can receive a degree from a Technical college like AmeriTech in two years, or you can go to a University for four.

How HIgh Maintenance are You?

How important is money to you? Do you need the lifestyle of the rich and the famous, or are you satisfied with the simple things in life? When choosing a career these are important things to consider. Some careers, despite the fact that they are much needed, pay very little. Don’t go into something like teaching if you want to make more than $35,000-$50,000 a year.

Are you an introvert or extrovert? This is a vital question to ask yourself. If you don’t like being around people you’re going to hate a career like social work or nursing. On the other hand if you need to be around others constantly a desk job might drive you crazy.
