How To Choose The Right Career For You

Many people say when you find a job that you love, then you will never work a day in your life. Unfortunately, finding that perfect job is far from easy. From a very young age we’re asked what it is that we want to be when we grow up, and although “princess” and “dinosaur” are fair answers for a child, there comes the point when people expect a serious one. However, this isn’t a simple decision to make. After all, there are so many different careers out there for you to consider, and this is such a huge decision that could affect your entire life. To help you make yours, here are some great tips.

Know Your Strengths

Before you can look at any careers, it’s important that you consider the strengths, skills, and knowledge you already possess. After all, you can complete training and learn new things to get jobs, but it’s much easier for you and potential employers if you already know what you’re doing. If you have an accounting diploma, for example, then working as a chartered accountant might be ideal. You should make a list of all of the skills and qualifications you have and match them to jobs you like the sound of.


Find Your Passion

Everyone needs to work because everyone needs money, but you’ll find that life is so much more enjoyable if you find a job you genuinely like. Of course, it might be easier for you to become a chartered accountant, because of your diploma, but you have to understand that it’s one of the UK’s hardest jobs, so you’re going to need to be passionate too, or you won’t have the motivation required to get things done. Because of this, you should consider your interests and passions while looking at careers.

Carry Out Thorough Research

While you may have a particular passion you want to explore further and develop into a career, you may need certain qualifications for the role you have in mind. To ensure you end up in a career you enjoy and can see yourself in for the long-term, research the role thoroughly and find out how you can progress. You may need to enroll in a course to enhance your knowledge, and there are some careers where you may need to spend a few years studying beforehand. For example, to become a doctor there are requirements for medical school you need to meet, such as completing a four-year bachelor’s degree in a relevant subject. By carrying out detailed research, it will help give you an idea of any necessary qualifications needed to advance and succeed in your chosen career. 

Take A Test

If you’ve done this work and still feel pretty confused, then you could take a career test. These tend to assess your skills, strengths, and passions, like what you tried to do above, but do so by asking you a set of questions that you need to answer in a set time frame. Once you’ve finished your questions, your answers are assessed, and you are generally given three or four career options that should suit you and offer fulfillment. You can find these types of tests easily on the internet, or could alternatively visit a career counselor for help.


Consider Your Options

Once you have a list of careers that match up with your strengths and interests, you need to consider all other aspects of your life to see which of these careers is most suited to you. If you’re a single parent, for example, then a job where you can work from home would be a lot more suited than one where you work long shifts and your hours change every week. Another important fact to take into consideration is driving. If you can’t drive, you’ll also have to consider how you’ll get to work every day, which might also affect your decision. If you’re struggling to make a decision, then seek help from a professional or loved one.


Choosing a career is a big decision, so take your time and find one that will make you genuinely happy.

The Benefits of Drinking Smoothies

I have recently fallen in love with drinking smoothies. And I can feel the difference already. I am not a fruit or veg lover. I struggle to get the recommended daily amounts, if any (don’t tell the kiddies). But I know I need to eat a balanced diet to be healthy. Which is why I went in search of how to get around my problem.

If you read my Father’s Day Gift Guide Post, then you would know all about this Andrew James Nutri-Fit Nutrition Extractor Blender. I have been using it for some weeks now, and I really like it. It is definitely a smart kitchen gadget to have around the house. I have made many cups of smoothies thanks to this blender.

Like I said, I struggle to take any fruits and vegetables on most. And I am sure many others struggle to as well. It can be hard to get the recommended amounts in our daily diets. Which is why smoothies are so helpful. You can get the recommended amounts of fruits and vegetables in smoothies easily. This would helps strengthen the immune system.


It is quick and easy

It is super quick and easy to make a smoothie. I get mine done within 5 minutes within any distractions, on most days. Making smoothies is easier and quicker than making even the easiest meals.


It improves digestion and helps with weight loss

Smoothies help improve digestion. This is great for anyone dealing with regular constipation and indigestion. Replacing a meal with a healthy smoothie can also help with weight loss.
