    Next semester, im going to have college and career where it’s basically about our futures and college. Then based off my friends complaints on an assignment about their career choices and whatever, i want to find a couple good career choices for myself as i dont want to just chose a random career and based the assignment off this. I also have been thinking about possible career choices, but i havent come up with anything i would really enjoy.

    Ive been thinking about this for a bit and probably even over worried about it. I would like a career where it isnt low paying, over working and requiring my use of memory. Or anything involving the use of a syringe, knife, or slow process blood drawing.

    can you help suggest a couple job choices possible?

    What do you want to be, what do you like.
    Mostly do what you like as job. But, something that quite profitable. Then take the career needed to be what you want in head

    I'd like to say trader. But I suggest you to choose what you like to do. For example if you love piano and good at it, then go for it.

    honestly in today's job market you'll be lucky to flip burgers after getting a masters unless you really got lucky and your degree is in a field that needs folks when you graduate, not when you start the classes but actually get your degree at graduation. I've seen 9 out of 10 times you go in to get a degree in a certain field that has job opportunities when you go to choose your classes and by the time you get done there's a glut on the market in those fields either because all the openings where filled while your in school or because everyone else and their brother did the same thing ...

    A career that is not low paying, over working and does not require you to use your memory? Model or spouse of a rich person.

    Seriously though - look at what is in demand in your city/dtate/ country. Think about how long you want to study, etc.

    - low-pay
    - overworking
    - memory-based

    That's just life there, chief.

    You don't have to enjoy you.
    You need too careers.
    The first one earns you money
    The second one will be your dream career funded by the first.

    The first one can be anything as long as it earns good money and have little stress

    I think it's important to find where your passion lies. Last semester, our professor showed this video of a guy who worked different jobs every week and so in a year, he worked 52 different jobs, trying to find what he was passionate about.

    I'm a firm believer in that if you 'Choose a job that you love and you will never have to work a day in your life.'

    Otherwise, I have so many friends who are really into investment banking for the big bucks. They don't mind sacrificing the first 3 years of their lives to the devil since they can practically get any job after that.

    If you don't know what you want to do, go to school for business. You'll either find that you're good at managing money and people, or you'll find something else that fires you up. For now, just pick based off of your skill sets and pick up more skills in that area, and if you find it boring (or its unprofitable) then adjust.

    When I was your age, I figured out that programming was something I was well suited for, so I started studying for it and got decently well equipped for further studies. Now university is a cinch.

    Its unrealistic to have those ideal work place since most work at first are
    1. Low paying
    2. Does have overtime once in a while
    3. Either physically or mentally tiring.

    Maybe Callcenter agent? Just take up english classes.
    Management?

    I cant see what i like doing as possible career paths at all.
    thats true, but then you can also be lucky or smart and find places where you can get that job of your choice.
    Less than 10 yrs. i dont want to spend a large portion of my life doing that.
    :(
    that seems like a rare job like the one im looking for

    Here is what I say, look for a job that you can stand. If you are anything like me what really matters is the rest of your life not your job. So for me I looked for a job that I would not hate, needs people, and pays well.

    if u want to get high pay job at the start, u should get your grades as high as possible. In our country, if u have good grades and skills, then they will hire u w/ high salary.
