Choice of A Career

Introduction: Choosing a career can help you select the right education and skills you need to obtain to support that career. Making careful and well-thought-out decisions regarding your career can increase your chance of success. Every man should have an aim in life. An. aim keeps a man steady in life. A proverb goes that a man without an aim is like a ship without a rudder. A ship without a rudder effaces danger. Similarly, a man without an aim cannot reach his goal. He stumbles in his way of life. So, every man should have a definite aim. But nothing is more difficult than the choice of a profession.

When choosing a certain profession or making a career switch, it is important to carefully find out what your interests and ambitions are. You can do this by means of a career aptitude test. Such a test gives you a clear insight into your talents and interests.

What I want to be and why: A career could mean working as a doctor, lawyer, teacher, carpenter, veterinary assistant, electrician, cashier, teacher, or hairstylist. Career has another definition as well, though. Different persons have different aims. Some want to be doctor, some want to be engineers and other want to be teachers and so on. But my aim in life is to be a doctor. My parents and teachers have given their consent to my choice. There are many reasons for choosing the profession of a doctor. The village people in our country are very poor. They suffer from various diseases but there is no qualified doctor to serve them. There are a few quacks but they cannot serve them properly. Rather they extort money from the simple folks. Many people meet runtime death for want of proper treatment. So, I have decided to serve the people of my village through this profession.

My plan and Preparation: Medical college takes only brighter students with good results in the S.S.0 and H.S.C. I am now appearing at the H.S.C. Examination. I have prepared well in all the subjects. I am sure to cut a good figure in the examination. After passing the H.S.C. with a brilliant result, I shall get myself admitted into a Medical College. After obtaining the M.B.B.S. degree. I shall go back to my native village and set myself to serve my village people through practice.

How will I serve my country/Social work: After I have completed the MBBS course successfully? I will go back to my own village to serve the suffering people. I will charge a reasonable fee for my patients. I will not take any fees from the poor people. It is my determination to set up a charitable dispensary and distribute medicines to the poor free of cost. I have also a plan to set up a hospital with few beds for serious cases. I shall stop the practice of the quack.

Conclusion: Career actually has two definitions. The word career is often used to refer to a profession, occupation, trade, or vocation. A career could define what you do for a living and range from those that require extensive training and education to those you can perform with only a high school diploma and a willingness to learn. A man who has self-confidence and a definite aim in life can surely succeed. Success in life depends much on the proper choice of a profession. I believe that I shall be able to reach my goal and serve the nation.
