The personal learning network for educators

Finishing school, millions of young people begin an independent life. They can begin to work or continue their studies to obtain higher education. Everyone knows what is to choose a profession, because sooner or later it concerns everyone. Some in choosing a profession pay attention to earnings, some interested in demand on a market, well, least likely to choose a profession for the soul.

The choice of profession - difficult and important step in the life of each person that requires training and knowledge, time to think, and does not tolerate frivolous because we all want that job corresponds our interests and abilities, brought joy and adequately paid, because most of their time people devote to work.

Although the phrase "job for life" is gradually receding into the past, yet your activity field will determine your entire future life and future opportunities. So choose wisely, and try to choose the area in which will be used as much of your abilities as possible that will significantly help you make a good career, using all your skills.

Decide what you enjoy doing. Many people do not take the decision on the choice themselves, and provide it to teachers, parents, neighbors and peers. Think about where your loved ones are working. Then, write the essay describing your desires and opportunities, and analyzes the results.

Think about the necessary skills required to do what you like. Perhaps you already know something. This can be a destination for your future activities. For example, you love animals. Now consider such vacancies in the labor market: animal care, veterinary job, animal welfare, transportation of animals, the training (eg, jockeys), sewing clothes for animals and food security, also you can open your own pet store, etc. Once you choose a profession, begin to develop the necessary skills in yourself.

Think about the choice of field of activity. The concept of the field of activity is much wider than just a profession. You must have an understanding of this field as a whole - it will give you a chance to learn at least five occupations in the area. For example, if you are an engineer, you will be able to work as an administrator, office - manager, teacher and consultant.

Do not focus on one thing. During continuous self-development it's good sometimes take a break off and look around; For example, many teachers have a good vocabulary, so they can become excellent editors and writers. Do not stop at one point.

Find people who are already working in this specialty, learn from them. This is very useful because it helps you to learn firsthand about the pros and cons of this work. If you are lucky, you will be allowed to even try to do something yourself for practice.
