Picking the right Job ► Think of: Something you would enjoy doing. It can get you a step forward towards a career. Something you are good at. Keeping this in mind. How much do these careers pay.
Something you would enjoy doing ► What makes you happy? When finding the right job, you need to look into your likes and dislikes. ► If you like to help others but don’t like to see a broken bones or blood…. Then you should not be a doctor in an emergency room. ► If you like helping kids and you have tons of patients…you should look into becoming a teacher.
It can get you a step forward to a career. ► When picking a job try to get in the field that you would be looking to have a career in : 1.If you want to be a Chef ► Working in a restaurant or a hotel would be beneficial for you. 2.If you want to be a Teacher ► It would be beneficial to work as a teachers aide/Campus Supervisor to learn the way a classroom is ran. 3.If you like to work in technology: ► You would find it important to work in a computer lab or an entry level position in a technology based company.
Jobs that you are good at or want to become good at ► When applying for a job you need to look at your abilities to perform the job. If you don’t like to talk to people then a customer service job would not be ideal for you. If you like computers and find it easy to navigate through these, then I would highly suggest you become a computer technician.

How much do these careers pay? ► When looking for a career you must take into consideration a few things: Where do you want to live? Who many kids (if any) do you want to have?
