[Career–What’s Next??]

Everyone would reach that one point in life when he or she is confused with what he or she is doing in life- is it right or is it wrong? Young students are always in a state of dilemma as to ‘what’s next’? This often happens to the youth who are actually building their ‘careers’ at that point in life. So talking about this significant word ‘career’, I would define it as the track one would choose in order to achieve something (s)he wants in life. So career is something that is like wet modeling clay, as long as you have the chance of modeling it right, it’s great; once it hardens, the change is forever. Everyone passes that stage of dilemma where they have to make the decision about their career.

There is an unending list of career choices available to us. Be it any career choice one makes, how successful it is, is influenced by factors like the contentment and peace one gets from it. So people who make a good choice, enjoy the job that follows while do it ‘for others’, regret it later on. Usually, parents have an influential role in shaping their child’s career. Some parents are open-minded and leave it completely at their child to decide their career while some of them restrict the opportunity cloud of choices. The choices can be like a legit educational degree or something totally away from education too. We have witnessed how successful non-educational careers can be- like sports players, musicians, artists, politicians, etc. If one makes the right decision in the young age, the fruit of success lies with him forever.

每個人都會在人生的某個時刻感到困惑,對自己正在做的事情感到迷茫,不知是對是錯。年輕的學生們時常感覺進退兩難,不知接下來帶做什麼。這種情況多發生在處於建立事業階段的年輕人身上。那我們來談一談「職業」這個關鍵詞,我個人對它的定義是「為實現此生所願而選擇的人生軌跡」。職業好比濕潤的黏土——如果你有機會好好塑造它,再好不過了。一旦黏土變硬,一切都已成型,所有改變化為永恆。每個人都要做出職業選擇,此刻都會經歷所述困境。

在我們面前,有數之不盡的職業可供選擇。職業選擇的成功係數受到一些因素的影響,比如,從中獲得的滿意度與平和心態。因此,做出明智選擇的人享受工作,而那些為了他人做出抉擇的人則會後悔不已。一般來說,家長會極大地影響孩子的職業「塑形」。一些家長思想較為開放,完全讓孩子自己做主;另一些家長則限制了孩子的職業選擇。這些選擇可能涉及傳統學歷,也可能毫不相關。我們也曾目睹了一些背離傳統教育路線的成功案例,比如運動員、音樂家、藝術家及政治家等等。如果,我們能在年輕時做出正確的抉擇,成功的果實將會永生相伴。
