Making the right choice when it comes to your career can be a tough decision to make, especially when you are very young. Transitioning from school to university, to landing your first job—-these are all aspects of growing up that can be very tough. Here is a quick guide to help you choose the best career for you.

Passion Is At The Heart Of Any Successful Career

The cornerstone of a successful career is someone who is passionate about what they do. You’ve probably heard the adage, “Choose a job you love and you'll never have to work a day in your life”

There’s a reason that saying is popular and that it’s evergreen. It doesn’t matter what your career choice is—whether you’re using social media to sell online and using SubscriberZ to get ahead of the competition, or whether you’re a doctor, engineer, or anything else. If you enjoy your job, the likelihood of your success is much higher.

How do you find your passion? It can feel hard making a career choice based on passion if you haven’t actually found it yet. The key is to explore different avenues that spark your interest. Keep in mind that you will need to follow through on exploring—don’t just try something once and give it up once you hit a rough spot. 

Don’t Be Limited By Your College Degree

Many people make a mistake in assuming that their college degree dictates what they have to do with their career. While that is the mainstream method of earning an income, there are no rules. 

For example, many people earn a medicine degree and end up as consultants or writers. Ever heard of the famous con-artist Frank Abagnale? He went from being a con-artist to being a financial consultant to the people who were trying to catch him all along—the FBI. That’s a true example of someone following their passion.

Building A Career

No one starts at the top of the food chain. To make a career out of your passion, you will need to build towards it. Many experts recommend having a “vision statement”—this should help you have something to aim for and build towards. 

In today’s competitive environment, you will probably be asked to intern for a low-paying job at the start of your career. Some companies might even be looking for unpaid positions. You shouldn’t be afraid to take on some of these internships, but keep it to a minimum. Know your self-worth, and don’t hesitate to demand payment for your services.

Take Courses

One of the things you will want to do is take many certified courses in the field of your choice. There is a lot you can learn from reading books and watching free online tutorials (on practically everything), but none of those will show up on your resume. 

Completing a course that results in a certification with your name on it is another box to tick on your resume. It shows potential employers (or others in the industry that may want to collaborate with you) that you are serious, capable, and worth their time. 

The Bottom Line: Your Career Is An Extension Of Yourself

Choosing the right career shouldn’t be such a stressful endeavor. Just keep in mind that whatever career choice you make, it should be something you actually enjoy doing. Monetary compensation shouldn’t be the motivation for pursuing a career. Your job is more than a means of making money, and the key to success is finding your passion and pursuing it on a professional level.
