How do I Choose a Career?

What are some of the factors that you need to consider in choosing a career?

It does not really matter if you are 18 and just entering college and thinking through what major to go after. Or you're in your 40s or 50s and looking to make another mid career shift into doing something a little bit different that aligns with your passions. Regardless of what age, these 3 different principles to apply when choosing a career.

Your passions really are were your natural interests are. How do you know what these are? Often you can use the illustration of walking into a book store, as you walk in what section or area do you gravitate towards? What books do you like to read through? Those can be an indication of your passions and interests. So if you gravitate towards the computer or information technology section, or the arts and culture section that can highlight to you what you enjoy.

So how do we pull all this information together? Take all three of the things mentioned above; your strengths, personality type and passions and see where all three of these intersect. This will help you find your 'sweet spot', helping you find something that energises you, that you can work for hours doing, that interests you and that you are good at. This is the career that you'll enjoy doing and is something you'll be excited about waking up and going to work for.
