Choosing the Right Job for You

All trades and professions have advantages and disadvantages, but for some people they love their job so much, the downsides are insignificant. There are others who hate the work they do but have no choice because they need the money.  You spend roughly one-third of your waking hours at work, so how do you go about choosing the right job for you?


Are You a People Person?
Do you like working with the public? Would you like to be mixing with different people every day? If you are a people person, then there is an enormous range of jobs available for you. From working in retail to being behind a bar or bank, you will have lots of contact with customers. Within that range, you then have to think about something that you perhaps have an interest in. Do you like fashion, so would like to work in a boutique, or are you a person that is happier dealing with figures? If so, working in a bank might be more suitable. If you have an interest in the area you are working in, it will seem a lot less of a chore.

Are You Creative?
You could be creative in many different areas. It could be that you are good with a needle and thread, so making clothes or designing them maybe could be your vocation. Artists are needed in all sorts of professions and from printing to web development, there are plenty of chances to use your talents. Some writers become famous book authors, while others write successful sites such as Being creative can open up all sorts of career paths, and this is a more possible option than ever these days.

Do You Want to Work in a Care Profession?
Some people want to spend their life caring for others. This could be as a doctor or a nurse, but medical jobs are not the only way to look after people.  Carers work in residential homes, sometimes for the elderly, sometimes with children and sometimes for the mentally disabled. Then there are the carers that work at home with foster parents being a typical example. There is a whole range of careers in care, you just need to choose the right one for you.

Do You Need to Train for Your Chosen Career?
There are some jobs that you cannot just apply for, have an interview and start work. If you want to be a lawyer, an accountant, or one of the many professions that needs a degree or other qualification, you have to be prepared to study or train for quite a while before you start work. Some of these professions can take many years to become fully qualified, but if you have a passion for a particular area, it will be well worth the effort.

Whatever career you decide on, it is likely you will be doing it for many years. Of course, there is nothing to stop you changing your chosen path at a later date if you are unhappy in your work, but how much nicer life will be if you choose the right job for you.
