Whatever it is, figuring out what to do with your life is not an easy task! Whether you’re just coming out of university or whether you’ve been working already for years now, finding what makes you happy is hard.
During this time, you’re more than likely stressing because A) you don’t know what you want to do or B) it seems like everyone is sorted and settled and you’re the only one. If you’re this person then do not fear as you’re definitely not alone. If something you studied or started working in, doesn’t turn out to be for you then it’s not too late to change! You can alter your career path at all point and there are hundreds of amazing jobs out there that you will prefer… it’s just about finding the right career for you. We have of careers to inspire you but we thought we’d pick out a few that might spike your interest!
Become A Foster Carer
A curve ball suggestion! Becoming a foster carer is something that people do not regard as a career but it most certainly can be. It can actually be one of the most rewarding things you’ll ever do.
Aside from the meaningful look on fostering that people typically see for family reasons, people do use this as a lucrative financial career choice. Before you jump to the conclusion, no, that isn’t a heartless look at fostering. If you or anyone have the ability to take in a child or young adult to give them a better life then regardless of the money, that is a special thing. Private fostering agency workers are continuously on the lookout for new foster carer’s that can have that positive impact on young people’s lives as there is such a shortage currently out there. Whether you want to get involved in fostering Manchester or Cornwall – there are agencies that will snap you up!
Obviously, this isn’t aimed at the graduates. However, if you’re someone who loves family life, you’ve brought up kids successfully and now you have the space to give a child a chance that needs it, then why not consider earning a living by using your life skills and experiences to improve a young person’s life for the better?
A Sports or Celebrity Agent
If you’ve been working in a managerial role for several years now, you will have developed the capabilities to know how to work with people and how to organise them. A typical office type role, despite how good you may be, it might not spike your interest or align with where your true passions lie.
If you’re an avid sports fan or celebrity follower, then why not consider applying your managerial traits into becoming an agent. Whether you start small and build your way up individually, or you get in with an agency, you can pitch your expertise and show just what you can do. In this industry it’s all about who you know and your personality. If you’re an influential person, who wants to get the best for people as well as yourself, this might just be the job for you. You may have a big name celeb that needs to deal with a number of people, so they will need your help! Anything from specialist doctors or nutritionists to cosmetic surgery solicitors – you will have to know how to deal with these people. A job that never sleeps but a highly lucrative role at that, you’ll be surprised at the lack of qualifications you actually need to carry out this job. You could even start a lot sooner than you think…
The restaurant & hospitality market is a big one and an exciting one at that! If your passion is food or simply making things happen and be responsible for it, then event planning may be perfect for you.
A highly satisfying job, if you want to escape just being sat at a desk all day, you could be responsible for creating something from the start and then you get to sit back and enjoy it once the events in full flow! A massive sector with big financial rewards, event planning is a giant in the corporate field as well as general entertainment and lifestyle side of things. Organising venues, catering, seating plans, entertainment, VIPs, guest lists and the event theme is just a hand full of tasks you’ll be in charge of.
Not a job for the timid or indecisive, it could be your job to pull together a magnificent night that people don’t forget! Despite it being stressful times, the salvation comes in knowing that something you’ve created has worked so well!
