1. Consider your dream career.
There is an old saying that if you’re trying to choose a career, you should think about what you would do if you didn’t have to work. If you had a million dollars and you could do anything, what would you do? Your answer to that question, while maybe not literally the best career choice for you, may give you insight into what you should do.
If you want to be a music star, consider going into audio engineering or music composition. These careers are easier to pursue and you will be much more likely to succeed and provide for yourself in the future.
If you want to be an actor, consider going into media broadcasting. You can get a degree in communications or work your way up the chain of command in a local news or other television studio.
If you want to travel the world, consider becoming an airline steward or stewardess. This is a great way to make a living and pursue your dream of traveling the globe.
2. Consider your hobbies.
It is very easy to turn your hobbies or something you love doing into a future career. Many hobbies correspond to real world needs and positions. Consider what you like to do and how that might fit into a career.
For example, if you like playing video games, consider becoming a video game designer, programmer, or QA specialist.
If you like drawing or art, consider becoming a graphic designer.
If you like sports, consider going into teaching and getting certified as a coach.
3. Consider what you enjoy or enjoyed in school.
Academic subjects translate well into future careers but may require more schooling than other types of careers. Your favorite class in high school could very well launch you into your future career but you have to be willing to work for it.
For example, if you loved chemistry, you could look forward to a future career as a lab technician or a pharmacist.
If you liked English class, consider becoming an editor or a copywriter.
If you enjoyed math, consider becoming an actuary or an accountant.Continue....
