Careers with good career progression?Watch
If by 'good career progression' you mean which will you get fast promotion in, then the one you have the best aptitude for and work hardest at.
Career progression isn't easy anywhere.
I would agree with threeportdrift. Career there isn't an easy answer for fast career progression. It takes a lot of hard work regardless of which career path you choose.
What I would advice is doing something that you absolutely love. In the long run, you will work harder in a job you enjoy, meaning you will get the future down that career path.
Hope this helps.
now the question of whether getting ON to one of those "any decent professional careers" is easy or not is another topic altogether.
pick something that aligns with the vision of how you want to live, where you want to live and what you want to be using your noggin and/or brains for.
