Jobs & Career Tips for Young - Plan with the wisdom of hindsight!
Today's young have many choices and opportunities to choose from - a confusing virtue for all! You need to develop a concept of ideal personality you will fit-in and like-it. Your conscience can be your guru to help you resist temptation and pressures from outside world. Selecting a job that you like and not in conflict with your values will let you realize your own complete-self and creative potential to achieve a sense of fulfillment.
There are a number of factors one should keep and bear in mind. Most important is the type of course or education you should undertake in order to prepare yourself for a particular career. Embark on a career with focus on a particular occupation and your objectives.
Make an honest assessment of your innate abilities and natural talent. Many land in careers that they end up disliking - a tragic situation. Develop good communication skills, gain proficiency in your area of interest and develop as many alternative skills as possible. The best career option depends on your aptitude, qualifications and skills.
Values and ethics cut to the core of the human experience in both personal and professional terms. It is about dignity and integrity without which no one will trust or respect you. Trust and respect are engendered by right action. In your heart, you know what is the proper course to chart. Parents, teachers, and mentors can show you the way, but in the end, you must walk the path alone.
Certain truths which are relativistic might will be conditional to cultural or societal reflexes, however absolute truths are shared across boundaries. For example, if you stab someone in the back to get ahead in your career, is it worth it? Does it really enhance your career? It all depends on how you measure the word career success. Recent scandals across the political, corporate and financial world demonstrate that there has been both a breach of ethics and also the problem when human beings become so short-sighted that they give in to avarice.
Some people define success strictly in financial terms, others in terms of work-related satisfaction, and then there is the point of life-work balance. A common situation that causes the need for career change is when your ethics and values no longer match those of the organization. Situation quickly leads to job dissatisfaction.
Always look to a holistic approach, trying to dig deep in order to re-invent yourself with creative flair, stretching competencies, grasping for opportunities as a child with enthusiasm. This enthusiasm based in the values and ethical principals most of us hold dear is beyond the Darwinian guidelines that punctuate the marketplace and end up in hubris.
There have been several studies which have demonstrated, empirically, that over the long term ethical behavior is more economically profitable than the alternative. Whichever career path you choose, always hold your head high in humility and dignity. Supplemented by hard work and dedication, you will become a beacon of light for others.
