Richard’s Answer

I think AI will take over writing in the years to come, so unless you are a really good writer, that might be a bad career choice. (You should still write for fun however-maybe a daily journal?).

If you like building, and you like school and math, you could become an architect. If you don't like school so much, you could become a contractor. Both of those careers can be lucrative, and both will require long hours.

Archery? Not sure as a career, but maybe you can find a college that will give you an archery scholarship.

I agree with the person above who says your likes can change. I'm sure they will over time, so don't lock yourself into just one thing. Better to expose yourself to as many things as possible, this will help you to decide what you really like.

As for me, I started college at art school, and eventually graduated with a degree in Landscape Architecture. Landscape Architecture combined my design background with engineering and the environment.

Good luck with whatever you choose.
Thank you comment icon Thank you I have been thinking a lot about architecture as a career choice and my family does say that I can do engineering. I will try to find a college that has archery so I can continue doing it. Thanks for the advice. Haden

Alex’s Answer

Hi Haden - love your question, because it's something I've thought about quite a bit. I've also asked myself this type of question for many years.

I would ask yourself why you like writing, archery, and building. Try to understand what about these activities you enjoy. Work backwards and make a list of the reasons you love the things you love.

Often times there are many, many careers that will satisfy these reasons. Then try to match that with what you are good at!

This is just a starting point, but it's a great place to start to help you understand yourself and that there are most likely many jobs you could be happy doing one day.

Keep in mind this list will probably change over time.

Hope this help!

Belie are my suggestions:
1. Would you like to bean architect, civil engineer, writer, journalist, athlete, etc
2. Find out more the relevant careers and determine what you have interest
3. Speak to someone who are working in these careers. Seek guidance from your mentor, school career counsellor, your parents, etc
4. Shortlist 1-2 careers your would like to pursue

Enise’s Answer

Hello Haden,

I am a Creative Writing graduate, so I can only give some advice on Writing. Writing is essential for your expression, your creativeness, your knowledge on any of these: poetry, prose, fiction, non-fiction, ghostwriting, novel, short story. Honestly, I enjoy writing poetry, short story, non-fiction. The reason is that they are practical and they are more expressive when it comes to writing. I have a Wordpress poetry blog called “EniseThePoet”, and a Book Review blog called “EniseBookReviewer”. If you are interested reading books, you may choose which are by far favourite. As I mentioned, I said that I had enjoyed writing short story, poetry, and non-fiction; yet you can choose whiever you want, really. If Creative Writing is sonething that you are interested in, I have listed, and decide which one you would like to pursue your career, and which major is suits you;

Creative Writing,
Writing: poetry, prose, fiction, non-fiction, ghostwriting, novel, short story, essay (if you would like to be essayist like David Sedaris)

English, Irish, and/or American Literature;
Mostly literary books from authors, yet they are based on History (so if you are interested in history, you may choose. If not, it’s fine)

Achery: Field Archery, 3D Archery, Target Archery, Flight Archery…

Building: Commercial, Residence, Agricultural, Infrastructure, Industrial, Manufacturing…

I hope this helps.
