There Are Many Careers To Choose From. Which One Is Right For You?

At some point we all must ask ourselves the challenging question; Which type of career is right for me? For a lucky few the answer to this question was evident very early, when asked ¬"what do you want to be when you grow up?". For most of us however, the career selection process started during our secondary school years when we began to discover our passions, met with careers advisors, were exposed to career possibilities, attained a first job or had to decide on a university major. Career selection seldom ends after obtaining one’s university degree. This is often the most strenuous stage of the career selection process as new graduates start to enter the workforce and explore different career opportunities in earnest.

How to Think About Your Career Choice

Certainly, the task of choosing a career can be assessed across a multitude of dimensions and the conclusions can be just as plentiful. Moreover, each field has its own unique prerequisite education, experience, skills, and personal character requirements. Career selection should be a thoughtful process as many fields require high initial investment of money, time and training.
