How to choose a career?

choose career

Choosing the right career is vital for many reasons. According to a recent survey by Mediatimes, one in three people are not happy with their jobs. There are plethora of reasons for this, but some of the main reasons are:

  • They’re not happy with the field they chose
  • They’re not happy with the work environment
  • they’re not happy with their own performance

Vikas, founder of Mediatimes and International Students in Australia Facebook page says no matter how unique or different the field is, what’s more important is that you go with full force to make it a successful career choice for yourself. Vikas is an SEO (Search Engine Optimisation) consultant and working in this unique niche/ industry for last 9 yrs.

“Choosing something that you love is very important. If you end up in a field which you don’t like then you’ll always be regretful about choosing that career. If you’re not into it, you can perform. To excel in something, you gotta love it first.” Vikas says.

Also important to note is that no matter how much competition is there in your chosen field, what you do with it and how much hard work you put into it will matter. Your efforts and smart work will make your decision a good decision.

Some factors may play an important role here such as qualifications required to do certain jobs. Many medical professions need 4 to 6 yrs degree and a lot of money while a small real estate course may only need 6 months time investment and a small amount of money. Your available resources such as time and money can play an important role here.

You may have questions before choosing you career such as what’s the scope of this field, how much I can make and what sort of things this professional has to do in companies. To find answers to these questions, you can head to job sites such as seek and careerone. They have thousands of jobs listed in different categories. Search your potential jobs there and see what sort of packages are offered by the companies and what are the job requirements. This will give you a very good idea about the real life job scope and a bit of exposure to the corporate world.
