Choosing a career which plays to your strengths is, in my opinion, the best way in which you can select a career for yourself. Far too many people select a career for the wrong reasons and I cannot tell you how many friends that I have who have made this mistake and then many years down the line they hate their jobs and feel unhappy and under pressure. You should of course like what you do but it should also be something which you are naturally good at.
With this in mind, today we are going to take a look at career choices for the carers in society and how they can best use this strength to forge a career which plays to their strengths perfectly.
What better way to use your caring ability than to help to shape an mould the minds of the future and become a teacher. Great teachers like Peter Benedict St Andrew’s principal, are carers at heart and it is this want and need to care for others that makes them so good at what they do. Being a teacher is of course about much more than just caring, you will also need to be knowledgeable, patient and very well organised. As a teacher you will be helping to guide a generation of young students through the world and your caring side will be the perfect strength with which you can help them out.
If you are prepared to work hard and you have the intellect and the memory for it, being a lawyer is one of the best ways in which you can care for others. Being a lawyer is not just about putting bad people behind bars, there is so much more to it that deals with people’s lives and you can greatly improve the lives of many though your work as a lawyer. It will be difficult to get into this profession such are the attributes that are needed but once you have accomplished it, you can get to work on helping other people who are have found themselves in difficulty.
Doctors and nurses are truly the ultimate carers, they dedicate their lives and career to helping others to improve their lives and they have the power to drastically improve the lives of thousands. A caring attitude is of course necessary to these professions but so too are a strong work ethic, high intelligence and a willingness to grow your knowledge by an incredible amount. Doctors and nurses are rewarded well financially and whilst this is a job that allows you to care for people from all types of backgrounds, it can be a job which will test you mentally, physically and emotionally, every single day.
