Choosing a career is one of the most important decisions everyone has to make as it is the turning point of anybody's life. Some people know exactly what they want to do with their life and for them picking a career field might be easy. But there are few people who find it very tough to decide their career. Then again there are chances that one might not be satisfied with the career they choose and regret their career choosing decision later.

So how do students go about picking the right career? Here are some beliefs people have when it comes to choosing a career.

Is choosing career a Simple Job?
In fact, choosing a career is a complicated process and students should give enough time it deserves. Career planning is a multi-step process that involves learning enough about yourself and the occupations, which you are considering in order to make an informed decision.

Can a career counsellor tell me what occupation to pick?
A career councellor, or any other career development professional, can't tell you what career is best for students. He or she can provide students with guidance in choosing a career and can help facilitate students' decision.

Why I can't make a living from my hobby?
When choosing a career, it makes perfect sense to choose one that is related to what you enjoy doing in your spare time, if you so desire. In addition people tend to become very skilled in their hobbies, even though most of their skills have been gained informally.

Will making a lot of money make me happy?
While salary is important, it isn't the only factor students should look at when choosing a career. Countless surveys have shown that money doesn't necessarily lead to job satisfaction. For many people, enjoying what they do at work is much more important. However, students should consider earnings, among other things, when evaluating an occupation.

Once I choose a career, will I be stuck in it forever?
No you'll not be. If you are unsatisfied in your career for any reason, you can always change it. You'll be in good company. Many people change careers several times over the course of their lifetime.

Will my skills go to waste, if I change my careers?
Your skills are yours to keep. You can take them from one job to another. You may not use them in the exact same way, but they won't be useless.

If my best friend or relatives is happy in a particular field, will I be to?
Everyone is different. Six billion people in this world has six billion thoughts. What works for one person won't necessarily work for another, even if that other person is someone with whom you have a lot in common. If someone you know has a career that interests you, look into it, but be aware of the fact that it may not necessarily be a good fit for you.

Is all I have to do is pick an occupation?
Things will fall into place after that choosing a career is a great start, but there's a lot more to do after that. A career action plan is a road map that takes you from choosing a career to becoming employed in that occupation to reaching your long-term career goals.

How can I know more about my preferred occupation?
There are several ways to know about your chosen occupation. You may search several print and online resources about that particular job and learn more about it. You can even ask those who have been working in that particular field from long time.
