What's the best way to go about choosing a career?

Report as

Begin by writing down your strengths and needs, as you perceive them. Then interview people who know you well (and in different situations). Ask them what they think that you do noticeably well and what you noticeably do not do well. Write these down and see if patterns emerge that point towards or away from a particular type of career or service.

Ask a career/guidance counselor to recommend and administer career aptitude or interest tests. Research, with the help of a career counselor, careers that will be in demand in the future.

Ask: How would I love to fill my hours for the next ___ years? What senses do I like using the most? What do I like to think about? What am I committed to for myself/others? What resources are available?

If you are lacking a skill in a career, but feel passionate about it ... don't let that deter you. Many successful people have had to overcome a barrier in the pursuit of their passion. Persevere.

Find something you like to do,. Careers should not be based on how much money you make, although it is a factor. You should spend your life doing something that you enjoy

Ask yourself where you want to be in 1yr, 3yrs or even 5 yrs. Look at what business opportunity is going to get you where you want to be.

I agree with all of the answers, but also once you have done that you should really look for someone that can mentor you on the career you have chosen. When I wanted to be a tax collector I went to the IRS office and I asked to talk to someone that works in the Auditing department. I sat with her for a little while, I asked her a lot of questions (you should be prepare with a list of questions that you want to ask) and funny enough we became friends. Eventually she started mentoring me on how to become a tax collector. It turn out that after a while that is not what I wanted to do. I was really happy that I found that out before I graduate from college. I couldn't believe how miserable I would have been if I were to stay in a job I don't like. Now I have a controller being my mentor. I love it so far.
