Hi Shakhlo!


First of all, try to identify what you do better. Try to identify that thing that everybody knows you are really good at.Then, look for positions that this skills are very usefull.


Another strategy is to ask who live dialy with you what things you are good and what things they think you need improve.


In my opinion, know yourself is the first and more important step. Put all your strenghts and weaknesses points on paper.


After that, filter some careers paths and try to talk one-to-one with people who are in positions that you are considering.


I hope I helped you.


Greetings from Brazil.

Hi Shakhlo,

Finding a career that fits you best can take some time. Initially, I would recommend trying to do a job that you think that you would like. This would usually include finding a job where you already have some skill or desire. For example, if you want to help people, you may find a job in some kind of customer service, whether in a call center, retail store, or a restaurant. You may want to use your computer skills to build web sites or build computers. If you really don't know what you want to do, you should simply start to try different things. If you are looking to go to college, you do not have to declare your major immediately. Use your time to take a variety of core classes. Make sure you take subjects that you do not know much about. This will give you some exposure to skills that you may not have known that you have.

John’s Answer

I was actually discussing this with some peers at lunch today. Unless you want to pursue a very specialized field, like medicine or engineering, you likely not going to end up where you think! There are so many jobs out there, that you have no idea exist. I was really interested in working with people so after trying sales, and not liking it, I learned about, and decided to try recruiting.


Ideally, you would identify an interest or passion that will become your full time job. Unfortunately (at least to start) this doesn't always end up being the case. Plus, how are you supposed to know what you want to do, when you haven't really done anything yet! Realistically you are going to work for a number of different companies, in a number of different positions before you find the right fit. I think the most important thing is to learn as much as you can along the way, meet a ton of different people, and do your best at whatever job you have. If you show people around you that you care about your work and care about other, door will open for you.

I would suggest taking the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator and Strong Interest Inventory to determine what areas you find interest in most. Also based on your interest and personality it will indicate what careers align with those results.

Hi Shakhlo,


It is important to find a career in a field that you love to be successful and happy. Explore what you love doing and try to find a career that fits your interest and you can see yourself content doing it for the rest of your life. If you are still unsure, look a round you and find a Role model that you admire and find out if their career choice interests you.


Take care
