Career choices are a nightmare

Former MemberFormer Member Posts: 1,876,324 The Mix Honorary Guru
I've decided that accounting is going to be my rock as in my further more specialised form of qualifications.

As i see that this gives me many opportunities as to where I can work as the majority if not all businesses have an accounts department or a separate company that handle their accounts for them.

But accounts is my sensible choice of career & that's finalised & i'm 100% happy with this.

Although if I follow my heart & not my head then we have the following other career ideas:

*Policeman
*Race car driver or member of a motorsport team
*Editor/proof reader
*Night club manager
*Youth worker or something else working with children
*Caretaker/grounds keeper/maintenance type person

As i'm only 18 then can I maybe also achieve some of the other careers above in my lifetime?

All I really dream of in career is that I earn lots of £'s, a company car, to be in charge & respected by a little team of people & i'm required to wear a suit everyday for work. See I don't ask for much;)

    the police would probably give you a great career. secure, respectable, well paid, etc.

    i'd like to do that, but i am shit with violence, criminals, drunk people and people in general, so i reckon i'd be a really really shit policewoman.

    but if you've got the temperament, i think it'd be fab. and you'd really get a sense of helping people.

    having said that, if all you want is money, suit and a car, you'd be as well going into sales. it'd certainly be easier. much more soul-destroying though....

    There's no such thing as a "finalised" career plan. I thought I wanted to go into the law when I was 18, but after three years of studying it I've decided that it's not for me.

    Never close your mind to new opportunities and career ideas. I've now applied to work for Stagecoach buses because transport fascinates me, but two years ago I wouldn't have given that career route a second thought.

    haha. ditto me and writing. i hadn't even considered something other than writing.

    now i'm stuck with an irrelevent degree and 3 years less work experience than the people i'm fighting for jobs.

    life does what it does. just do what you want to do now.
