“Choose a job you love, and you will never have to work a day in your life” ~ Confucius
Making a choice of which profession to choose is not easy. Students or job seekers simply follow or do what their parents want them to do. In many cases a mismatch-match occurs leading to dissatisfaction.
What goes unnoticed unheard is the young persons hidden talent. How can one understand or identify his or her own talent? In some cases the school or college keeps track of the students innate abilities and skills and guides him or her further. Or there are qualified psychological counselors who do their assessment using subtle approaches.
Fortunately the young folk of today are very well informed and quite sure of themselves. They follow their heart and are risk-takers and know that switching from job to the other is not a big deal.
In my own case I completed my engineering but soon discovered that it is the Army for me and was commissioned in the Corps of Engineers – enjoyed every moment :)
