Sharmin’s Answer

Its advisable to do or make a career in what you love to do rather than doing something which you are just doing for someone . A career in travelling is more interesting rather than the other choices . You can try out or find more on becoming a blogger which seems a better career as per your interest and family contradictions .

Daniela’s Answer

Hi Mary,


A good advice that I can give to you is make your choice based on your motivation and not based on money issues. Because when you have passion for what you do, the money comes naturally. Money must be a consequence of your work and not the main reason for choosing a job.


So, if you loves fashion, work on it. I´m sure that with passion, discipline and much effort, you´ll achieve your goals and make much success.


I know that your parents loves you and wish for you all the best, but the career choice must be a decision made by you.


Think about these points.


I wish you good luck in your decisions.

Thank you comment icon Hey Mary! What I would suggest doing is, list all the type of careers YOU'd (not anyone else) like to pursuit. Listen to your <3, motivation, and passion. What are you passionate about/intrigues you the most when you look at the list I asked you to do? Pause for a sec and think about the future, picture yourself pursuing something your parents "want you to be," now picture yourself doing something you love and are passionate about. It's all about you and pursuing your dreams, not any one else's. At the end of the day, you'll be the one working as "whatever it is you choose" everyday, and you have to make sure you'll be happy. I understand your parents' concern because I have been there myself, pressure doesn't help, so take your time and make a well thought out decision. Good Luck, Sandra

Vernon’s Answer

Well, I am a scientist, so discussing modeling careers is out of my realm. If you want to do science and travel too, become a paleontologist. This profession will take you to every corner of the world in search of those fossils from long-gone plants and animals. You will be literally writing the history of the Earth. That said, with the Greenland and Antarctic ice caps melting, more fossiliferous rocks will be exposed by the time you are ready to investigate them. Your future looks bright in that area, but I wouldn't buy any housing below sixty feet in elevation above sea level.

Ayan’s Answer

A. Does this career sound interesting?


You don’t have to be passionately head-over-heals for a career in order to thrive. (In fact, following a passion can be a big mistake.) However, a career should genuinely interest you on a gut level. It’s a good sign if you hear about a job and think, “Yeah, tell me more about that!”


B. Does this career involve work that you could be good at?


Many skills can be learned if you commit the time, but pursuing a career that actively goes against your natural tendencies is a giant fail waiting to happen. If you’re an introverted research type, don’t force yourself into a sales job—no matter how cool it sounds. Likewise, big-picture people will not find happiness in a tiny-details job. If the work itself clashes with your personality or skill set, move on.


C. Does this career fulfill your essential needs?


What you need from a career can include everything from basic salary and education requirements to more complicated concerns related to disability, family situation, religious beliefs and beyond.


Once you’ve nailed down what you want from your job, you can match those needs to career options. For example, if a six-figure income tops your priority list, choose a field where you can feasibly make that kind of money (think science, healthcare, technology, business) and avoid lottery industries (like filmmaking and fashion design) where only a lucky few will strike it rich.


D. Does the world need this career?


Practically speaking, you need a job. So before diving down a new career path, see if there’s a reasonably good chance someone will hire you at the end of it. Check out employment projections or industry chatter to gauge if your career is in demand.

Elaine’s Answer

Hi Mary,


Choosing your career is difficult but can not always base on what parent WANT. Like Daniela mentioned, it has to be based on your motivation and not money base. Myself had the same issue when I was in college. My parent wanted me to choose a "money making" career which mean business major or marketing major, doctor, lawyers, etc. But none of them I'm interested in. I tried once for one business class and end up in a poor grade. I just don't have the motive to becoming a business woman at the time. Meanwhile, I'm good in arts, so I choose Graphic Design. Did I get the job that I study? No, I end up in retail and became a very sucessful visual merchandiser. As life changed, I am now a interior design professional.
What I'm trying to tell you is this, you have to make your own decision base on your interest, passion, and strength. Fashion modeling is a very tricky career. You have to have a certin body type, age, look etc. to becoming a model. I knew a lot of model as a visual merchandiser. They all struggleing getting a job, because not all clothing fit their certin look. As per Piloting, this is not a bad career. Indeed you will travel a lot, but you get to see the whole world and see new things that not many people can have that life and options. Earning wise, they are consider high pay. Scientist, is a boring job if you have no interest on reserching and study. Higher education is always need it such as PHD.


I hope this help and good luck!


Best,
MK
