Despite having your own ideas on what you want to be in future, there are people in your life who will think they know better and seek to advice you on which path to take.

Even though some people's opinions could be helpful, it is good to make a career decision on your own.

Before making a final decision on which career to pursue, ask yourself these questions;

1. Why do I want to pursue this career?

Do not give in to the pressure of friends and family members to chose a certain career. The career you choose determines your life in future. Remember no one will help you in working for long hours once you land that job.

2. Is this career in line with my interests?

It is important to choose a career that matches your interests as this will bound you to be more passionate about it. Pursuing a career you are passionate about gives you the morale to do it the best way you can.

3. Are there jobs in the career path I want to take?

Before settling for a certain career, it is important to know the availability of job opportunities. Choosing a career with more jobs gives you a chance to practice and grow in your career.

4. What education or training do I need?

When choosing your career, take note of the level of education required as well as a financial investment towards that career. Think of the time and money required as you make your decision.
