If I were to choose one occupation out of these three, I would choose a pharmacist. The reason for this is because the pay is good and not too much work is needed. If I was a Family or General Practitioner, it requires working extra hours. Being a pharmacist also doesn’t require as much educational training. Furthermore, now that I think about it, being an interior designer doesn’t seem like a very good job because its salary is only half as much. Pharmacists or Family & General Practitioners or Interior Designers? CONCLUSION
