Three secrets to choosing your dream career.

It’s that time of the year when the Joint Admissions Board- JAB, is about to announce the first and second revisions. To many prospective university students, this must be a crunch time as they select courses. Those enrolling in parallel programs, or in private universities, are also getting ready to choose careers. Here are three secrets that will guide you in selecting a career.

1. Select the career you are passionate about.
There are people who sit down to work, and the hours just melt away and they have no idea. On the other hand, there are those who will constantly struggle to get up and go to work, and keep looking at the clock. The difference is passion. Some simply love what they do. Theirs is a labor of love, and they wouldn’t do anything else other than what they are doing now.

2. Select the career you are talented in.
It’s all very good to dream of becoming a rocket scientist, but if you are not good in Math and Physics, and can’t assemble and disassemble objects, then you obviously have made a wrong career choice. You can also not dream of becoming a great lawyer, if you are not good in forming arguments logically and to conclusion,
and convince people. Needless to say, some of the skills one needs to pursue a career are innate- one either is born with it, or is not. However, in some instances, some skills can be developed with time. So, if you are selecting a career but you initially do not have the natural skills required to excel in the career, then you will have to work extra hard to develop those skills and attributes.

3. Select the career that is in demand in the job market.
It’s all good to have passion, and be talented, but if the world is not willing to pay for your skills and talents, then you may be wasting your time. If you have passion for such things as poetry for example, initially, you have to supplement your talents with a full time job, as you get your feet off the ground.

In summary.
The best career choice is when your passion for the career is high, your talents needed to excel in the career are exceptional, and the job market demand for the career is also high.
