How to choose a career
Finding a job is not the same as finding a career. A career is a broad field in which I would like to work in; unlike a job which is just a task that I am getting paid for. In order to find a career that I absolutely love I have to think of myself, not my family and/ or friends. The most important choice that I have to decide, in order for me to be happy with my life and also be successful, is to think about myself and my decision. I just have to know how my decision will affect the people around me. I believe that I’d thoroughly consider every aspect of what makes me happy. Treasured attributes that I would apply to make my choice are wealth, respect, and caring for others and my varying interests. That is why I think that nursing as a profession appeals to me the most. The nursing profession is really what I need with its variability. You can easily switch from being a Geriatrics nurse to being a school nurse. When I was nine, I knew I had to be a nurse when I saw my aunt, who at the time was studying to be a registered nurse, perform CPR on a stranger. We were in a food store getting groceries and then all of a sudden we heard screaming. A mother was kneeling on the ground with her toddler on the ground looking unconscious. She kept yelling, “My baby ate the strawberry and he’s allergic! Call the ambulance!! PLEASE!!!” My aunt immediately ran to the boy and started the procedure. In my eyes, that was amazing. When the EMS got there they said that the CPR saved him a couple of minutes and he was very lucky to have one person out of the group of people who gathered around the incident who knew CPR. Another situation that confirmed my dream was at my past job. I worked at a group home for developmental disabled people as a Residential/Direct Care employee. At first I was scared but after, my clients kind of grew on me. I would tell them stories and treat them as if they were like my friends. It started with Debbie. She was so honest but knew when to lie if she didn’t want to get into any trouble. She was so friendly and always gave somebody a hug if they looked sad. If somebody was angry she’d say, “Calm down, honey.” It wasn’t until I left for school was when I knew I would miss my clients. Now that I’m in college studying to become a nurse I knew that I made the right choice. I disregarded the comments from my friends about being a counselor/ advisor because I know that when you are a nurse you have to counsel your patients and give advice anyway. My dream job is to become a nurse because I feel that it’s just right for me! To get more information on findingthe right Career, visit .studentscholarships.org.
