    Career Choices

    Wow, so my new semester has started. And one of my courses is Accounting, I took it just to see if I ever want to consider it as a career choice.

    And boy let me tell you, it is the most boring thing ever that I have encountered in my 16 year old life. Wow, I find it so so so so so boring.

    Anyways coming to point, I made a thread similar to this before, but cbf looking for it. Basically I need some help in identifying the different career choices that are available in today's world.

    In other words, apart from the usual Doctor, Lawyer, Engineer, Accountant etc, are there any other professional careers out there which are new and booming and are something different.

    Thanks for any help... .

    TBH, I want to be an astronaut and explore the universe, and never return to Earth (so it's win win for everyone involved).


    But there'd be more chance of me getting it on with Heidi Klum, than that happening.


    So yeah, doing a business course hey.

    There will always be a need for people to scrub toilets. World population constantly rising, a boom industry.

    My uni course is 'Computer Geoinformatics'.

    Pretty nifty, IMO.

    I don't know if this is the right place to ask. My adivce: spend a semester taking courses in various fields, see what you like. You'll have to catch up later on by taking more courses, but its well worth it to find out now, rather than after you graduate.

    There are lots of good fields around, if you like it. If you like medicine, there is a huge demand for Nurses and Pharmacists. Bioengineering is hot atm. Teachers are always needed, and you have the freedom to major in a subject you enjoy and want to teach but not if you want to make a lot of money. Law enforcement always needs more people, and if you major in criminal justice and either join a police force or a national agency like FBI, you'll have the opportunity for rapid career advancement.

    In the NYPD, you can take go up a long way by just taking exams and performing (all the way to captain) and having a college degree. In the end, it all depends on what you want to do, and most careers will offer you some sort of advancement opportunity if you're so inclined and are talented.

    I'd have to say that although Accounting was boring last year it was only due to my teacher who was one of the meanest people I have ever met. The subject itself was reasonable enjoyable. I am in the same sort of dilemna as you Turbinator with career choices, not really sure whether to go into a career through history or some sort of sports thing. Teaching either subject would also be quite good.

    Gotta say that teaching, despite its many challenges, is an incredibly rewarding career
    Plus, those nice long holidays...

    Me and a mate both did accounting at high school and hated it. He tried it again at university and actually loved it and has since specialised - it's certainly worth a second go.

    I have completed a Marketing Diploma. I'm now studying a degree in Communications and majoring in Radio. I've also done a bit of television and advertising through-out the degree as well.

    That's the problem with it. Heaps of sporting people who are no good for anything else(i.e me) try to get into it.
