Re: How do u decide ur career path?

For me, I always wanted to build something great.
So, I think, your ambition matters.

Basically, you have to at least have an idea of where you want to be in the future, then work towards it.

Re: How do u decide ur career path?

your interests, and your strength


interest plays the most important role of course


as you grow older, you will know what you want to do. Or you can have this particular ambition since young and still is keen at the moment.


One who straight away study something (degree etc) but dont know what he/she wants to do in life is sad. Problems might arise later

Re: How do u decide ur career path?

for me, first i tot of becoming a computer engineer cos i'm very interested in these types of things, but when i grow older(now i in poly) though i study in the course similar, i start to lose interest in it.

so its best to think abt it at a later part of ur age if nt when u began to lose interest u will start to hate urself for wasting so much time on it instead of using the time on ur new interest...

When I first join Freight Forwarding, I dun have the interest or cert or anything about it... As time pass along, I find it more challenging and more fun... And began to grew more interest in it... Since then, it became a career of mine...

Identify your interest first. Then work hard on it.


Every trade can earn you money as long as you're good at it.

I've been graduated frm poly for a yr plus already but still hanging ard wif part time jobs... am also looking and discovering wat i like... so remain jobless till now... like wat others advice me... i think u shld juz get a job (tht interest u or u're comfortable wif)...then u will slowly know wat u really wan to pursue...i guess being in the workforce will change ur thinking...moreover, u can collect experience also!

Re: How do u decide ur career path?

I think passion matters a lot. You can get a job, with high pay etc - but no passion for it.. There's no point. You won't enjoy the job & you might just find going to work everyday is an agony.

Of course qualifications matters too. No qualification - limited job options.

Why pressure? Making money doing something that you enjoy are heaven's match.... not all get to do something they like and earn money at the same time. Either is the work sarks, but the pay is good, or the other way round. Yea. Interest is the one that gets you going.

It's good to explore around before settling for a particular industry/field or going after a particular degree.... half to a year will be good. Not for too long though.
