What career do you intend to go into and why? Watch


    At first, I wanted to be a paramedic, but the average salary, I researched, was not very promising. Is there something similar to a paramedic that pays a bit better? If not, I am most likely going to shoot for physician. Also, are there any books recommended for a student going into the medical field? Thank you in advance!

    TBH every career avenue bores the hell out of me I can't think of a career I would enjoy all seem to be boring and a waste of life. I guess I will probably just go into IT support or something like that but again boring just like every other job prospect.

    Counselling and CBT because I want to help people the way my therapist helped me when I suffered with anxiety.

    I'm probably going to go for transport, energy or the civil service.

    I am actually stuck between two career options that interest me. One being primary school teaching and the other being psychology/therapy. All I know for
    certain is that I want to do something that will help people/have a positive affect on their lives. Helping people is my greatest passion so I would suggest to
    someone trying to find a career - look at your passions, look at what you're good at and decide whether you will want to be doing this full time.

    One the one hand i'd rather like to be a pirate, sailing a nice pirate ship around with cannons, parrot and rum... thats the life!

    On the slightly more realistic front i'm aiming for something in the MFAT.
