CAREER AND BUSINESS


In todays world, thousands of jobs are available. Global needs have mushroomed as
developed and developing societies work towards a better future for the in habitants of this earth.
New scientific processes and modern technology have been created to answer these needs. As
communication and information bring the world together in sharing of all this knowledge,
manifold options in terms of careers and job opportunities have opened up for todays
generations. Today, the problem often faced by the young person deciding on a career is not as
simple as it may have been in the past, simply because the greater the number to shoose from, the
harder it becomes to make a choice.
Imagine that all kinds of Jobs were available to us. Would we not then be hard put to make
up our minds?
Fortunately, no one can really have access to all of the different jobs available on the market.
For one thing, everyone usually considers jobs that are to his or her own interest. And, for
another, there is no way that all job facilities and opportunities can be had by everyone.
Nevertheless, anyone choosing a career should be aware of the immense variety of jobs in
existence. Everyone should realize that more choices may actually be available than those he or
she may have in mind or perhaps even know about. There may be many more occupations that
people might never have heard of and so may never even consider when making choices, and yet
it might be just those occupations which open up golden opportunities for the individual person.
What Influences me?

When we think about doing something with our lives, we may not always get or turn out to
be what we want. The reason is that getting there is not always completely dependent on
ourselves alone. We may all have our ideals and our ambitions, but we dont always end up with
the same ideals or ambitions because of many factors that we have to take into consideration.
Do you have any idea of what those factors may be?
In fact, sometimes, they are so important that we may even make 180 degree changes in our
careers and life styles because of them. They are such as; people around us, family attitudes,
tradition, and environment.
