Focus on your personal plans for your future. Consider, where do you see yourself in five, ten and twenty years. To choose a profession means to define your lifestyle. Often about the characteristics of different professions are judged by appearances. For example, the famous surgeon shown on television, he is known and respected by the students and the many doctors and doctoring tempting and noble deeds. But in order to get to that position takes a lot of time to spend standing at the operating table, sacrificing their health and personal life. You need to be ready at any moment to go to the patient in need of your help. Therefore, to avoid mistakes, to collect information about different professions, learn the specifics of future work.
Examine your inclination. The areas that you especially like is not on the level of income of individuals, namely by occupation. If you like skiing, you should not go to learn to be a programmer, because this specialty is in demand. It is better to develop in the favorite direction to find the position of instructor, or another related specialty.
Think about their abilities. Not only explicit, but also hidden, which could you to show. If you love art and literature, you are unlikely to become a talented engineer. Look at yourself as if from outside - if you have a tendency to generalize or do you like everything "sort through"? If you like to think globally and easily perceive a large amount of information, you'll make a good analyst, economist or head of a high rank. To work in these fields need to be able to think strategically. But if you like to dig into the details and pay great attention to the details of the process, all actions are performed sequentially, step by step - you have a good chance of becoming a doctor, a journalist, an accountant or an engineer. Ie you are able to work in areas that require a meticulous and diligent execution of each action.
Specify the source of his motivation in the evaluation of events, is it internal or external. Ie, how will you know how well you did the job. If you value an evaluation of your work other people, then you have the extrinsic motivation prevails. You'll make a designer, a waiter, musician, journalist, administrator and representative of those professions, which provide for the execution of the instructions drawn up by other people. But if you apply their own assessment criteria for their work, so you have dominated the inner motivation. You rarely listen to the opinions of others and are responsible for the decisions taken. You'll make a representative of creative professions - a musician, an artist or a poet. And you will feel comfortable in the role of head of supply Department or implementation.
Choosing a profession, focuses not on the opinions of others, and their vision of the future. Those professions that were "fashionable" 15-20 years ago, now may be not popular, because technological progress does not stand still. Gather as much information as possible about the different specialties, "try" them for yourself and make an informed choice.
