Choosing a profession is one of the most important decisions for any young student who wants to develop professionally, our profession will determine our future and in some cases our way of life, below we will share 7 tips to choose a profession:
1.Information: You must take into account that the more you know about your profession you will have better tools to make an appropriate decision, looking for information is not only limited to the educational centre or study program, but also you have to take into account other factors such as the labour market, the possibility of earning a good income, etc.
2.Passion: If we feel passion for what we do we will never have problems when carrying out demanding work activities, people who feel passion for what they do have 3 times more chances of getting a job or being promoted, as well as the satisfaction they feel the person will help you to have a better job performance, this is one of the most important points to take into account when choosing a profession.
3.Income: it is important that our labour activity has the possibility of generating relevant economic income, this is very important since some professions are more profitable than others.
4.Labor market: According to the place where we live (or where we want to live) there are professions that are more sought after than others, it is important to analyze the situation as it is possible that there is a career with "great demand" in place where you live and you can take advantage of this opportunity, in the case you want to be an entrepreneur you must analyze your target audience or ideal client.
5.Interview with a professional:One of the best ways to learn more about your future profession is to talk with people who are currently working for another company (or are independent) and are pursuing your career, this is like taking a look at " your future ", there is no one who can give you better advice and guidance than a professional who is practising this profession.
6.Study centre: Once we have decided our profession we must analyse the place where we will continue our studies, there are different training centres both private (in which the expenditure is higher but it is easier to enter) and state (the expense is lower but it is more difficult to enter), it is important to take into account that we can carry out our studies in different centres, for example we can do the degree in a state university and then we can do a master's degree in a private university, also if we are very good students (usually from the top 5 positions) we have the possibility of accessing different scholarships and economic benefits in different study centres.
7.Self-employment or own business: Another alternative is to think of our profession as a tool to empower our own business, for example, if we are lawyers, we can put a study of our own, if we study advertising, we can have our own agency, etc. While this advice is not very "traditional" it is very adapted to modern times.
8.The skill set that you have: there are many jobs that you do not know or have no clue about but that actually match with your skill set and where you could do better. For example, if you are good at writing assignments and homework in school or university. You could do better at the work of providing essay help to the students.
These are some of the things that could help you to choose the profession that would prove to be most suitable for you. However, there can be many more factors than these that can help you shape your choice and that determine how a particular job is suited for your personality, experience, skills and interests. So, it is advisable that you explore a wide range of job rather than look at only a few and select from within them as it is very important in these times of frequent changes and volatile markets that the venture you take become economically successful or viable within in a short time with relatively fewer efforts and expenditures.
