Consider your interest

The first factor that you should consider when it is time for you to choose a life career is your interest. Most young people make the mistake of pursuing the interest of their parents rather their own interest. There is nothing wrong for your parents to help you choose your life career. But when choosing it, you should not overlook your interest. It is you that will be doing the job after all said and done. And so, if you have no interest in the career you choose, you will definitely not have job satisfaction from it. This is why it is important for you to consider your interest first. Here are some factors to consider in order to know a type of job that will satisfy your interest:

  • Identifying people who you admire their career: look around you and take note of working class people around that you love what they do or the type of career they follow. That may be your ideal career.
  • What are your hobbies? Your hobbies are those thing you like doing anytime you are free. Some of these hobbies reflect the needs of the real world. So, you can turn your hobby into your future career. For example, if you like playing football and you can play it very well, you may consider becoming a professional football.
  • What is your best subject? Each subject leads to a particular career in life. So, check the courses or subjects you enjoy doing while in school and follow a career that they lead to.

Consider your skill

The second factor that you should not forget to take into consideration is your skill. You can only do well in your profession if you have the necessary skills. Practice will only help you to perfect the act. For example, if you are good in drawing or construction, you may consider going into arts or building construction. But if you are not able to draw, it simply means that you don't have the necessary skills to do well in the career.

Look at the present labour market in your locality and how it will be in the future
