What would be your advice to a youngster thinking about choosing a career?

IELTS Part 3 questions

Well, personally, a lot would depend on you and your ideas and personality. If you are passionate about something, be it sport, music, art or anything else, I would advise you to firstly explore the career possibilities and opportunities in that particular field.

Too many people choose a career which might be popular or offer good employment prospects, but they later find that they are trapped doing something they don't really like that much - and would prefer to be doing something different.

When you think that during your working life you will spend thousands of hours 'at work' it's important you do something you really enjoy and are passionate about. After, all, it'll be the biggest part of your day, everyday, for the rest of your working life.

If you have no idea about what you want to do - then it's a little more tricky, isn't it? I mean you could always choose a career that has good prospects, pays well, is easy or based on demand in your city or country.

What would I do? I woud draw up a list of things that are important to me, such as flexible working time, creativity, variety of work, being well paid, scaleable or with future prospects, and then based on my priorities and personal preferences try to choose the career which seems to satisfy as many of my preferences as possible. It'll take a bit of time and research - but hey, you're going to be spending thousands of hours dedictaed to this career in your lifetime - so it pays to choose as wisely as you can, right?

Most importantly - enjoy whatever work you choose to do. No matter what other people may say or think, it's your life, do what you want...follow your dreams!
