Walter’s Answer

As far as finding a career with a high or decent pay rate there are many but for the most part I would not say they are easy. My advice to you is to find something you are passionate about or have a strong foundation in. This could be either a subject in school or maybe you have a hidden talent or hobby that could help unlock your potential. I encourage you to make a list of your strength and weaknesses and start researching careers that align to those strengths so you can leverage that and use it to your advantage. Don't get discouraged because I can tell you from personal experience that it took me a while to find a career I was passionate about. I also realized that the career I am in now relates to math (a subject I enjoyed in school) and I am able to use that to my advantage.

Priscilla’s Answer

Hi! I've been in multiple roles in my life (I'm in by 40s now). I started in IT, then HR, and now I work as Product Manager in a Financial institution (I graduated from Business Administrator, which is an amazing way to keep your options open - HR, Marketing, Finance, etc).
People change as they progress in life. Something that motivates and interest you may not be the same 20 years from now. So I would say keep your mind and your eyes open. Don't get too worried about having to choose one career and thinking that you need to stick with that. As long as you're growing (more senior positions, compensation, or personal achievement), you're good.
Regarding compensation: I always say to my kids: If it's easy, anyone can do it, and there's a lot of people out there doing it, so the compensation is lower. I would expect a good paying job to be challenging.

Christine’s Answer

I didn't find my career path until I was in college. And trust me, going after the money is never a good idea. If you are good at what you choose, the money will come. I didn't get really good until 2 years in my career path. Then at year 5, my salary jumped to six figures. So pick something your passionate about.

Leonard’s Answer

Good answers are here! The key is doing what you like to do. Believe it or not, you can make good money and still hate your job and be unhappy. Sometimes your career is both something you are good at and also something you like to do. It will not seem like work if you have both. There are always people willing to pay for things they do not know how or feel like doing. From a stability standpoint in careers, people always need to eat, sleep, wash their clothes, have electricity, need air conditioning and plumbing, need their car fixed, and get their hair cut. These are obviously services, but are always needed.
