How to Choose the Right Career

  “People are always blaming their circumstances for what they are. I don't believe in circumstances. The people who get on in this world are the people who get up and look for the circumstances they want, and if they can't find them, make them.”                           ― George Bernard Shaw Having a defined career direction with a little hard work, some planning, and some serious self-reflection and a perfect guidance will help you with getting a job and to gain a fruitful, fulfilling career. There a few things which has to be considered before impulsively falling for a career or job.

Consider Your Interests, hobbies, favorite academic subjects

  • If you’re trying to choose a career, you should think about what you would do if you didn’t have to work. A person’s interests and aptitude will be started manifesting early in the phase of childhood. If you are interested in exploring the world, consider becoming an airline steward or stewardess or travel and tourism manager.
  • You will be fulfilled in a career which utilizes the touch of your hobby, interests or something which you always felt good at performing. For example, If you like drawing or art, consider becoming a graphic designer.
  • Since all of the careers are academic oriented, it is highly indeed to connect your career to a subject which you always enjoyed learning. For example, If you enjoyed math, consider becoming an actuary or an accountant.
  Your Skills are so special Consider what skills you excel in and something which you were always appreciated for.   You might be a very good student of science subject but your critical appreciation of certain literature works were always appreciated in school. So consider such special skills while choosing a career. Your interpersonal skills are asset.  Most of the careers in the present era are built on the strong pillar of interpersonal skills. If you really think of having an interpersonal effectiveness, try nourishing it more fit for a great career. A social worker or marketing personnel could be an example for careers which completely tap these skills effectively.  Perfect Guidance can take you there.  Despite having all these skills, it is sometimes confusing to figure out what you actually are going to do. Please don’t get perplexed and finally end up in nothing by not approaching a right person who can guide you to choose your exciting career. However a person with professional expertise with enough resources to prepare a career plan with the use of aptitude tests and personality assessments will be the best to approach in this direction.
