Alexander’s Answer

teaching, susbtitute teaching, or anything school involved would be awesome! Alternatively, if you're looking for even more flexibility you could join a local youth sports club that runs out of a recreational gym that only gets together once a week. Whatever you decide just remember you don't have to commit to it forever and you can always try new things!

Praveenaa’s Answer

It's a critical question but my suggestion would be, Career everyone will have their own interest and their own plans we can interpret this would be suitable for the people.
When you say you love your family first think what is your exact interest and try for it.
You can try for Teaching profession which will have fixed timings and you can also spend some valuable time with your kids.
Or if you like any artistry work like Pencil sketching, Painting, Embroidery, Stitching, Mandala art you can setup a tutorial for them and you can conduct classes for them based on your preferable timings at your home itself so that you can even daily brush up your knowledge in your work and you can educate other in the place where you are.
First think of your interest and turn it into your work module.
Thanks for the question and hope it helps you.

Eric’s Answer

Hello, Alonna!

Selecting a career can be difficult! It's important that you recognize a few things.

1. A career is not the end all be all. You have the freedom to switch careers at any point as you develop as a learner and adult.

2. You may find things that interest you, but, this may not be something that you desire to do for work. Just because you love doing something in your casual life, does not mean you'd like to do it for a livelihood. Think about individuals who love to paint but only do it as a past time. Sometimes the pressures of executing on what you love for income can make you despise your passions. I suggest applying to the boys and girls club or YMCA for the upcoming summer to see if you really want to work with kids.

3. You can take a personality test! The Myers-Briggs 16 personalities test will tell you more about your personality and may help you in this decision process.

4. Speak with a career center representastive at your institution about the different routs a degree can take you. There is more than one way to reach your end goal. It is important you're aware of all the possibilities!

I hope this helps!

Kind regards,

- Eric

Eric recommends the following next steps:

Take the Myers-Briggs test.
Schedule appointment with a career coach at your institution.
Review some of the different paths you can take to do what fits you best!
Apply to be a summer camp counselor to seesaw much you enjoy working with kids.
