Choosing a Career Essay

by Huma
(India)


Some people choose a career according to the social status and salary it will give them. Others choose a career according to whether they will enjoy the work.

Which do you think is the best way to choose a career?


A career choice in view of social status and financial security it offers is considered to be the deciding factor for some individuals to decide their career path. But, there are some people who give more weightage to a career in the field of work they enjoy rather than the other way around. In my opinion, it should always be the personal interest that should be the guiding force when undertaking a career.

The proponents, who believe in a career based on the pay scale and status attached to it have little but few arguments. For instance, a career in medicine could give a lot of perks in sense of money and position in society, but only that doctor excels in life who has interest in his subject and enjoys treating patients. Or else, they just end up to be a family physician, rather than a specialist. So presumedly, a career without interest wouldn't take one to heights in career, in other words it causes hindrance to one's career growth, which again is a cause of his low social status.

On the other hand, a career clubbed with enjoyment and interest results in attaining a stable social status combined with financial rewards. Reason for this being that, when a person enjoys his work it does not seem to him like he is being burdened to do that and so more or less he sees it as a hobby. In present scenario, as most of the careers evolve lots of stress, a job in choice of liking saves us from many diseases arising out of pressure at work . Additionally, love for work escalates ones career growth.

I concur, upon the fact that the career choosen by keeping happiness at work in mind is the best way to earn a great living without being pressurised.
