Is it worth it to apply for jobs you are only slightly qualified for?

I was wondering if it is a good idea to apply for higher level jobs even if you don't have a degree or a specialization that is required or desired. Would someone hiring even consider me? #hiring #employment #jobs #future-career

Is taking on more than one profession/career in one's life plausible/acceptable?

Part of the nature of being a human is that we change. We take on different hobbies, interests, and personality traits as we age and gather new experiences. This is one thought that has pestered me on my journey to apply to colleges and decide what to do with my life. That being said, I knew that it might be impossible for me to keep one job for the rest of my life (or until I retire). As my temperament, interests, passions, and overall self changes, so will my career interests. I know myself well now- I want to pursue engineering as a way to create things using science that will improve the lives of other people, and perhaps change the world. But what if a decade or two into that profession I have changed enough to the point where my work is not satisfying as before? Or my passion changes to theater, or music, or medicine, or even teaching? One of the things that has stuck with me is my 11th grade AP english teacher stating that "Teaching was not my first job, and it won't be my last". Is this way of thought something that others take on as well? #career-choice #career #future-career

What is a good Career that could pay you great amount of money?

I want a career that doesn't take so long like a Doctor or a Lawyer, i honestly think college is pointless and a waste of time like during the 4 years that you attend you can honestly make a lot of money without going to college #careers #future-career
