It's definitely not hard to have a career. The hard part is discovering what you like , sticking to it and developing yourself in that field. Once this is achieved, with time your career will be put into shape.

Hi Junhua,

Having a career isn't necessarily hard especially if you find a career you actually enjoy. I'd recommend having a career in something you are passionate about and then the rest will come easy to you. If you don't know what you like yet, I'd say research and reach out to people in careers you think you may like and ask if you can shadow them. This would give you firsthand exposure to what a day-to-day would be like in that career. Often that is enough to determine whether or not you like it. If you start a career and change your mind about whether or not you like it then change your career! Hope this helps!

Brandon’s Answer

All jobs and careers will be difficult in some way. Not all jobs are the best jobs in the world. For most people with already high paying jobs, they had to grind there butts off in order to reach that stage. Nobody can get to the top first.

Now, careers can be hard if you decide to switch up what it is that you want to do later, since that world require more effort to get into the brand new career. The good thing is that if you do, you have all of the experience from your job to transfer over to the new career. The bad thing is, that you need to make up the required experience that is with the new career which can be difficult. Some people don't want to hire anybody new, and others don't mind as long as you can show that you are able to do the work properly.

Rebecca’s Answer

Do you feel anxious about what you would like to work on? If you work on a job, you have a career. It really depends on how you would like to develop your career.
Perhaps you can think about what career you would like to start with. Though you may need to plan your career in long term, it does not imply that you cannot change your career in the future if you change your interest or you find it is no longer suitable for you.
Firstly, you may start the subjects you are interested on or your hobbies. You may identify the career that related to your interest or hobbies. For example, if you are interested in Science, would you like to be a scientist, a science teacher, etc.
Hence, you can shortlisted the careers you would like to pursue. You can continue your study on the relevant subjects and develop you careers.
Hope this helps! Good Luck!

Anh’s Answer

Asking about Career is a good first step. It means you are looking forward and planning for your future. Having a career means you are not wandering from job to job, but you plan to specialize in something.

The next step is to ask yourself: What career do I want to go into?
To answer that, list out your strengths, interests, and what school subjects you do best in.

Then take your list and talk to your school career counselor and teachers. They can guide you toward a career that match your strengths and interests.

Also talk to working professionals in careers that interest you. Successful people like to talk about themselves. So don't be afraid to approach them, especially on professional social media sites like Linkedin.

You can take a few classes in school and college on subjects that interest you. Take the courses that come with a lab. This should help you to explore what's it like to work in that field.

Good luck!
