I have not decided what i want to become once i finish school in 2 years time? My best subjects are Psychical Education, Business Management and biology. My hobbies are eSports,Soccer, Working on cars and keeping fit
I just need some direction. #business #biology
I wouldn't worry yourself too much with not knowing what you want to do when you finish school right now. Some of your classmates will know for sure that they want to be teachers, mechanics, or work at their mum's office. But, that isn't for everyone!
I speak from personal experience here. I didn't really decide what industry I wanted to work in until I was 19 and I realised that aeroplanes were really cool and it would be fun to work near them. But how? I couldn't afford to be a pilot and being an air hostess didn't fit my financial goals. Well, I loved business like you - so I went into a commercial role (sales) and built things from there, taking new opportunities when they cropped up along the way, whilst working hard to prove myself.
You don't have to have a set career path, there are many more jobs out there than you could ever conceive, sometimes it's fun to get in at the bottom of the ladder and figure things out as you go rather than limiting yourself whilst at school to a specific path.
Most of all, go a direction you enjoy in some way. If you love sports / soccer, start there - but that doesn't mean you have to be a footballer. There are plenty of paths and career opportunities that surround sports.
When I was in college, I had quite a number of choices - from architecture because of my brother, economics because I liked it and I was good at it, and also computers. Computers was something new to me at that time. I ended up with computers and also business - this was mainly due to what I enjoyed doing.
Throughout your school, I hope you are able to take stalk of what type of areas / learning gets you excited. I have always tried to find an intersection of something I am Good at, Enjoy, and is Meaningful (GEM!) - simple, but helps to guide me as I think about career opportunities. I have always tried to find a role where I can contribute my skillset but also something that lines up with my passions / interests and has growth opportunity. And to be honest, I have 10+ years work experience and while I feel I have a GEM career, I am always thinking about what I want to be when I 'grow up' :)
