What do you currently work as?

Recommended Posts

Assalam u Alaikum

Try to figure out your true passion in life. When you know what you really love doing, you will have a variety of career options that are more suited to your taste. Examples are given below: 

Love to help people: Become a doctor, a lawyer, a teacher, a psychologist, a nurse, a police officer, a mechanic, a founder of a non-profit organisation, an activist, a journalist, an academic/scholar, social entrepreneur, a religious scholar etc.

Fact Freak: If not knowing about the things that interest you keeps you awake at night, you may want to consider becoming a researcher/scientist, a historian, a journalist etc.

Love to travel: If you want to meet people from different backgrounds and experience what life offers in a variety of circumstances, a self-employed journalist may be a career for you (You may blog or use other Social Media platforms). Example: https://www.facebook.com/KamranOnBike/

Love to eat or cook food: Open a restaurant, offer innovation in dining, create your own special spices, become a dietician, start a blog, start a youtube channel on cooking, travel around the world/country to try different food varieties and share your experiences with your audience etc.

Love Problem solving: Become a Software programmer, a Psychiatrist, a Mathematician, an Engineer, an accountant, an Innovator, a judge, a lawyer, a scientist, a doctor etc.

In making the above choices, you may also want to consider whether you are primarily a thinker or a doer, an introvert, or an extrovert, disciplined or casual etc. These personality traits do not necessarily limit your options. You just have to know your boundaries so that you can either change yourself through self-development or adjust your career pathway according to your comfort zone. For example, an extrovert lawyer may initially be inclined to become a barrister so that he/she can use his/her power of persuasion in the court hearings and be less concerned about too much paperwork and organisation of the actual case. Whereas an introvert lawyer may initially choose to become a solicitor who, due to efficient e-communication, tech skills and better organisation of client base, is able to attract and please people however he/she hires barristers or other senior lawyers to attend important court hearings. 

Hope this helps.
