Whether you’re aspiring to be the next Vince Offer or have no ideas of what you want for your future career, don’t worry. 

Not everyone has their future planned out with clear guidelines on the steps they need to make. You’ll find that many people take work to pay bills or support their families and have to an extent fallen in the career they are in now. Either way is okay. Although, if you want to take more control and steer the direction your work life takes you in, there are some aspects you can consider. 

Passion

It’s easy to think and reel off a list of different career options and roles out there within the wide world. But, consider out of all of these roles which ones would you actually want to do. So many people work for necessity and not enjoyment. Where possible it is worth considering what you like doing and what careers will allow this passion to grow. 

For example, if you have a passion for gaming and technology, going and working in an accountancy firm might not be the most enjoyable fit. When there are jobs out there around coding, new technologies, or selling technologies to the correct buyer. It is easier to build a career up within a field you are interested in and have a passion for than one you have no vested interest within. 

Future Income And Lifestyle

Although you are stepping onto a lower rung of the career ladder than you ultimately see yourself, it is important to consider if this job is going to fulfill all of your personal goals. 

You will spend more time working than you will have personal time. So with that in mind will your work enhance and support that lifestyle you envision. It is important to be realistic with your expectation but that said hard work and dedication can be used to move you up the career ladder and income chain.

Irrespective of any career or job you take on, you need to be confident that it will provide what you require. For some, this is having a larger income and a set amount of disposable income monthly or supporting their family, whilst for others, it is more about the job role and the enjoyment they receive from this, and therefore the income is not as important. 

Qualifications

Now that you have some ideas about the type of career you fancy yourself within, it is important to review if you are qualified. If you hold the qualifications already great, some employers may even support in-house training or qualifications for the right candidate. Whilst, in other instances you may need to consider taking the initiative to better yourself personally and to gain the qualifications required to make this move. 

If you do need to enhance your education in order to move into your dream career, it is worth considering how this will be funded and also considering gaining some experience in this field to make sure it is the best move for you.
