Dexter’s Answer

Hi Nick,

Have you thought about going into construction, physical therapy, PE teacher, or physical trainer?

I'm sure there are more jobs out there, but those are the ones that I could think off the top of my head.

Hello Nick, there is a fantastic book out there called "What Color is Your Parachute for Teens?" by Carol Christen that does a fantastic job of identifying your skills/interest and outlining potential careers paths from there.

I say once you have list of potential careers, I'd suggest reaching out to people that do that and asking questions like pros/cons of the work, job satisfaction, etc. Almost all of them will be more than happy to discuss their career path with you. I hope this helps.

Simeon’s Answer

I agree with the answer on physical education and therapy for sports teams. I would also think there'd be a place for being a part of stadium personnel who set up and take down sports equipment. You might even consider professional refereeing. It's a physically demanding job that has a lot of upward potential.
