Hi Kiana

What should you keep in mind while selecting any career ?
It all depends upon your interest and what you are good at
Money will come with any job / service. but what matters most is your passion in doing what you like and continue to excel in it

Why to join travel industry ?
If you are keen in joining travel industry then i would suggest you to do so as its remarkably dynamic where every day you get to learn new things and do new things . This has a very broad spectrum right from airlines to hotels , rent a cars to exciting events. Be it a leisure travel or Business. you will always be on a learning spree & do exciting things

All the best !!

Kind Regards

So I got my degree in Spanish and couldn't decide what to do after I graduated... I ended up traveling and working in a ton of different fields (everything from non profits to on manual labor on farms).
Now I work in sales at a tech start up which I never thought I'd do. The reason it works for me is because they value me exactly as I am, the job plays to my personal and innate strengths (personable, outgoing - nothing to do with my degree) and the company aligns with my personal values (we don't try to sell to people unless we really think we can help them, big emphasis on mindfulness and a life-work balance, etc.).

keep an open mind, life might surprise you:)

The most important is what you are really interested on. It's really a pain to work on something 8 hours a day that you have no interest on it.
If you are interested on Travel and Photography and also good at English, you can consider some career relating to Travel, Tourist, etc. For example, Travel Journalist, Hospitality Management, etc.
You can explore more online what career you are really interested on. If you know someone who works in that particular industry, you can talk to them to learn more how the real life of that career. Also, you can seek intern or part time opportunities. There may be difference between the real life working situation and the information you have found.
Hence, you can choose the relevant subjects as major in the college to learn the relevant knowledge and skills.
Hope this helps! Good Luck!

electra’s Answer

When looking at a career you should always understand two things. What are you passionate about and what are the subjects or tasks that you are naturally good at. With this combination it will guide you to pick the right choice.
If you like travelling and photography, you can either opt for a career in tourism industry like tour guide that will require good knowledge of languages or choose a career in relation to design where you can learn different software solutions that will be helpful for photography.
You can also try and look for jobs that combine the two. Fashion photography will allow you to work as a photographer while traveling around the world.
Remember that one will be your hobby, and that necessarily doesn't have to be your job.
Good luck!

Keep in mind that what you think you want and what you end up doing might be wildly different, for lots of reasons. Very few people I know ended up doing what they thought they would coming out of school. Be it because they found new passions and interests, they fell out of love with what they wanted, or simply they just needed to pay the rent.

All of this is to say, if you don't know, that's a good thing. Explore different things; blogging, photography, maybe internships in different parts of the travel industry perhaps. Get a feel for what you like and be happy to move around until you find something that meets your needs.

Hi Kiana,

I would say that there are a few things that you need to consider when choosing your career.

First, you need to determine for yourself what is success in your chosen career. I am a photography hobbyist so my success metrics is winning awards rather than making money. When I was young, I loved writing and I wanted to earn my living from writing. It took me a while to find my current career. It is not what I would have imagined as I didn't even know this career existed until my mid-20s. With that job, making enough money to live how I wanted to was an early metric for me. Now the fact that I still love what I do and I am always learning something new keeps me going.

Secondly, I would consider what it would take to stay relevant in your career. Will you need to update your equipment every few years? Would you benefit from a degree? Does your industry change enough that you have to be a lifelong learner? The ability to grow in your career can keep your career exciting, especially if you don't necessarily want to end up being the boss of people.
