Tips on Choosing the Right Career Path for You
First of all, find which career paths could be a good fit for you. Make a list of your skills and compare it to the skills needed to see if any of them is a good match. Then prioritize your goals to see if they can be accomplished through these career paths. Do you prefer to work in/out of an office? Do you want to work by yourself or as part of a team?
Then, after you narrowed it down — research, research, research! Read everything you need to know about the training that’s needed to get the position and what the job actually entails. Perhaps take a class related to the field to see if you enjoy learning about it. If you’re still interested, get some inside information. Reach out to people who work in the field and arrange an informational interview with them. If you find that you get along, maybe even ask to shadow them at work for a day. Another alternative is applying for internships in order to get some hands-on experience.
Once you decide on a career path, double-check and see if you have the resources needed to be trained for the job. Do you have time in your schedule to go to classes or training? Do you have enough money in order to pay for your education, or would need to take out a loan to pay for them? If everything seems right, you should be good to go. We wish you the best of luck and hope you manage to land your dream job!
