Career Coaching For Teenagers
The trick to never working a day in your life is to do something you really enjoy doing, they say. Who wants to get up every morning to attend to tasks she hates doing anyway?
If you are grade 9, then you are in the perfect position to make a choice as to which career you want to follow and pick the school subjects required for your chosen field. All you must do, besides picking the right subjects and passing them, is to first determine what it is you will truly enjoy doing.
Have you already decided on your career path for when you wrote your Matric exam? Do you know what it is that you want to do for a living when you step from the school premises for the last time to enter the adult world?
If you have, how did you arrive at your decision? Is your decision based on the normal influences: family, friends, society or worse, those well-known “you’ve-got-to-do-this-job” personality tests or is it based on something more solid?
If it is based on sound advice and discussions, how do you know that the chosen path is indeed one you’ll truly enjoy? Have you questioned your decision? Have you done the required research? Have you explored the various options available in the chosen field?
For instance, if you want to go into Finance, do you know that there are the options of becoming a Tax Accountant, Business Insolvency Accountant, Forensic Accountant and Auditor. All within finance, but each with its own specialty. Which one would suit you best? How would you know?
How about a career in Human Resources? Here the possibilities are just as unlimited: HR Officers, Training and Development Managers, Talent Managers and Independent HR Consultants, to mention but a few.
Even if you have elected not to attend university, what is it that you want to do after you finished school? Where do you want to make a difference? Doing something that you hate doing is not the way to spend your working life. It’s just not worth it.
By addressing your values, things you enjoy doing, things that are important to you and identifying the things you cannot do without etcetera, my Coaching program has the tools to help you make a well thought through decision on what it is you would enjoy and what your preferred position would look like.
Don’t follow in someone else’s footsteps for the sake of loyalty. Don’t just do the work your friends want to do so you can feel part of something. Follow your own calling. Set your own course. Go make the difference you were meant to make.
You’ve got nothing to lose and everything to gain.
