For me, I knew I wanted to a physical therapist because I like fitness, teaching, and socializing with others. I wanted a job that was on my feet because I knew if I got job where a sat behind a desk all day I would be bored. Thus, for a person to figure out their potential professions, start by listing out interests and dislikes. Do you like sports? Maybe a career can be in coaching. Do you like working with people with physics disabilities? Maybe a more specific career can be coaching with special populations. On the other side, if you dislike math, then a career in finance may not be a career to pursue.
Ultimately, it comes to you and knowing who you are and what you want. My best advice is this: if you are still unsure, take on internships and job shadowing opportunities and learn about various careers. I’m doing so, you’ll gain a better experience of the profession and what you want in a job.
I suggest you can put down what you are interested, your hobbies, etc first. Then, you can explore what careers are relevant with these interest, hobbies, etc. You can find out more information about these careers and identify the career(s) that you would like to do in the future.
Hence, you can speak to someone who really working in these careers (if you know any) or identify any intern opportunities in these careers. It can help you to acquire better understanding on these careers and shortlist the ones you would like to pursue.
Hope this works! Good Luck!
Give yourself permission to change too. Life takes us on some crazy journeys and things can change. Be flexible and open to new opportunities. Hope that helps!
The best way to write down or understand what interest you. One way to try these out is to volunteer within that particular interest or hobby and see if it would be something that you may see your self doing for a longer period of time. You can also job shadow someone that is currently in the field that you are looking to pursue. Try to set up a information meeting or a connection meeting so you are able to ask them questions regarding that particular field and that will help you have a better understanding of what its like on a day to day basis.
Hope this helps,
