What career should I pursue?

What career should I pursue? Topic: The case study banding
June 20, 2019 / By Bassett
Question: I'm pretty young now, but I want to start thinking about this. I used to want to be a vet, but the emotional part of it was too much for me to handle, but I still have a passion for animals. Right now im open to ANY careers of any sort for ideas, maybe ones that you have and really enjoy. Thanks so much!!

First relax - Join the club of folks that had a hard time deciding their life's pursuit. I had the same problem many years ago. I would advise you to stop thinking about what job pays the best, what job your friends think is really hot or what job you have read about in the newspaper is really in demand. Obviously you don’t want to train for some career to be repairing typewriters or repairing a gasoline clothes washer – that is to train for something that will not exist when you graduate. You may have gifts and abilities that are different from your friend’s. Be sure you are not climbing the ladder of career success only to find out it is leaned against the wrong building. It might be the building your parents wanted or that your friends suggested. You must find what is best for you. My parents were heartbroken I didn’t want to be a doctor. They would have gladly helped to pay for that education. The only problem was I faint at the sight of blood. The important thing for you to do at this point is to complete a 4 year degree. Many employers don't care what your degree is in but that you have one. A degree says to an employer that you are teachable and can finish what you start. These are two very important qualities because most employers plan to retrain you anyway. Much of the information you get in a college textbook in your field is out of date by the time the book is published and makes it way into the classroom. Employers plan to show you their way of doing things so again what you have learned up until you enter their doorway is not as important as you having demonstrated your teach-ability. If you are unsure what to do, I would suggest you select a major of something general that you can complete in as fast a path as possible: Education, Journalism, English or something along those lines. One way to find out what you like is to do some volunteer work. Most churches, hospitals, senior centers, animal shelters and other similar groups have volunteer programs. This will help you meet interesting people and may help you decide what you like. Also, volunteer work is looked very favorably by employers when they look at your resume. It tells them you will go above what is expected. You will probably change your major several times while in college. Again you will re-invent yourself many times in your lifetime by changing careers as your needs and desires change. One of the practical decisions you will have to make in life is if you can make a living at what you want to do and figuring out what part of your life will be your occupation and what part will be your hobby. You may want to play in a rockband, create video games, design the cars of the future, or have an occupation where you travel to exotic places. In some cases these jobs may not pay well, may not pay consistently or may be very difficult jobs to find at all. Other jobs may require years of study with lots of dollars spent on education, hours of practice and even then you may discover you are not talented enough to do because they have so many talented people you are competing with it makes it hard to impossible to break through. These are things that you can always aspire to do as a hobby. The person who wants to play in a rock band professionally may find they can play in a minor band or orchestra on weekends. The person that wants to design and program video games can have a blog or online column that reviews the newest game titles and hardware. The would-be car designer can restore classic muscle cars as a hobby. The person that wants to travel can do that and write travel books or blogs about their experiences. In each case these imaginary cases people have a good job that they have learned to be content with that gives them the time and money to do their other hobby interests. Best Wishes!

You're in 9th grade. Yes, think about your future career, but there's no need to make a decision and set it in stone for years yet. For now, continue preparing for college by taking a variety of college prep courses: English, social studies, sciences, math, computers. Choose electives that allow you to explore your interests. Do class papers and projects on career-related topics that interest you. Also, read books by people in the various professions that intrigue you. One thing: You mentioned an interest in the sciences but your careers list doesn't lean that way. STEM (science, technology, engineering, math) careers are big right now, so you may want to look more at some of these careers. Since you describe yourself as nerdy and say you love being around sciency people, I bet you'll love college. Choose one that is more of an intellectual, scholarly school than a party school. Think about becoming a professor. Professors do lifelong research and publishing as well as teaching, and they often dooutside consulting work as well.
