By | March 13, 2016

When you are nearing the end of high school, the need to find a career for your future increases. You might feel overwhelmed with your choices and pressured to make one before you’re ready. Don’t be. If you keep in mind that you still have time to decide what you are going to do for the rest of your life you won’t feel pressured and end up jumping into a job you hate. If you are a teenager and still in high school or younger, you have time.

You may have had many ideas of what you wanted to be when you grow up when you were little. Don’t completely throw them out the window. Minus the absurd ones, some of them could be something you would still want to do. If you wanted to be a doctor, look into it. If you wanted to be a marine biologist, look into it.

Choosing Your Career  Guide for Teens

Look at what subjects you are good at. If English is your strongest subject, you might want to check out careers in teaching, writing for magazines, writing novels or other creative writing, editing, journalism, or other careers that use English skills. For math or science, you might want to go into medicine, engineering, or business. If you like history, look into teaching, museum jobs, or anything related to your history era of choice. Language skills can mean translating or international business. Don’t rule out any creative careers such as in any type of the arts, theater, fine arts, acting, singing, etc. They are hard industries, but if you feel you can do it, go for it. Still, be realistic. If you want to go into dance, you have to understand that a lot of people that do it have taken years of different dance classes and lessons for most of their lives. Know what you are equipped for.

When you’ve come up with a list of careers you are interested in, research them. Find out the pay, hours, stress level, and any other important aspects of the job. If you know someone in that field, ask them if they like it and what kind of person would be good for the job.
