What's The Right Career For Me?


The time will come, eventually, when you have to choose what many call as 'the right path' that will lead you to your desired, professional career. Of course, many of us would like to opt for a career that matches our interests and skills, and preferably, this would be something we enjoy doing. For others however, the financial remuneration might be the top priority - this is why they will not be happy with their jobs unless they feel that they are well-paid. Therefore, we can say that it is most inevitable that different people will have varying criteria for choosing a career that they want to pursue. Nonetheless, there are some general basic questions that you could ask yourself if you are mulling over the best career that could take up most of your next couple of years.

First: What are your interests....really?
Take a look at yourself and see what you find browsing for the most and enjoy reading and or otherwise watching during your spare time. Also, ask yourself whether you prefer working on your own or in a team.

Second: What are the financial rewards that you can gain from this career? Are you satisfied with them?
Even though you may not be pursuing your dream career for the money, do make sure that your job will be able to keep you in a good financial shape, to meet your needs, accommodate your lifestyle and leisure activities.

Third: Does the career provide room for progression? Where do you envision yourself in a couple of years' time?
If you are not the type who likes being stuck in a rut, repeating the same job for decades, then try to look for a career that could give you all the flexibility and variety that you need.

Fourth: How much time will you dedicate for your job?
Do consider the hours spent at work, or if you are working from home, the hours that you need to put in daily and weekly. While you might enjoy doing the work (and this is indeed a blessing!), ask yourself whether this comes at the forfeit of your private and or family life, friends and so on. If this is the case, then you might want to balance the pros and the cons for accepting such a job.
