What Is Your Vocation?
Making some tough decisions
Making a decision about the career that you would like to follow can prove to be very tough. You have to make a life-changing decision and there is a lot of pressure on you to choose well and thereafter to perform well. Since you will be choosing your career and the work that you will be going to for a long time to come, it is of paramount importance that you choose something that you are interested in. If you are to wake up every morning dreading the work that you do and wishing that you did not have to go to work ever again, your life will indeed be miserable. Therefore, make sure that you think well before you choose your career.
Follow your interests and passions
You can choose a career based on where your interests lie. You should not choose a career in order to please a third party or merely because most of your friends have opted for that particular career. For example, just because people urge you to choose a career in medicine, if you would like to become a professional conveyancing solicitor, you should go for what interests you. This will keep you interested in your work and you will have a reason to enjoy the work that you do. Further, if you enjoy drawing, designing and creating, you might like to become a fashion designer or you might like to go into something such as web designing, especially if you are tech savvy. Therefore you have to make sure that you choose a job that will interest you as well as challenge you, so that you do not find work to be mundane or tedious.
Take a sneak peek
Moreover, it will also be good if you can work with someone in the relevant field for some time in order to obtain a hands on experience of what your work will be like. If you do not like it, you can then consider another career option. For example, if the legal profession interests you can work for a months under the guidance of a senior lawyer in Blacktown. If you are interested in finance and accounting you can work for an audit firm for some time, before you decide what will interest and suit you the best.
Think before you leap
Thus, it is important that you make a decision without outside influence or coercion which can prove to be detrimental to you. You should find something that will interest you, keep you challenged as well as something that will help you earn enough to support you or your family. Therefore, think well and make the right decision.
