What kind of careers are the best? And what are the qualifications?
One of the most popular careers for kids is to become an astronaut. Many
kids dream of going into the space when they grow up. They dream of
working on a space station or exploring deep space. Be become an
astronaut, it’s important to have a right background. Many astronauts
have a background of engineering, physics or medicine. Sometimes they
have a military background, such as flying military aircraft. As for
pay, astronauts can earn a good salary, but not great.
Another popular career is to become a musician or actor. Many kids dream
of becoming famous singers or movie stars. However, most musicians and
actors don’t become famous. They are usually paid by the hour or by the
performance. Only a very fewer earn lots of money. So the best advice is
not become a musician or actor, unless that’s you real passion.
Become a professional athlete is another dream of many. It’s nice to
imagine playing a favorite sport and getting paid for it. However,
becoming a professional athlete takes a lot of work and practice. Great
athletes practice for hours a day with teammates and coaches. They also
work regularly with trainers to keep their bodies strong. The level of
pay for athletes depends on the success and the level of their
performance. Athletes often have short careers because of the physical
requirements of their sport. When they are no longer able to compete at
a high level, some athletes become coaches.
Firefighters and police officers are important jobs that help and
protect people. These careers require applicants to complete training
programs and pass for physical test. These jobs can be exciting and
dangerous, so they require courage and sometimes sacrifice.
When considering salaries and benefits, some of the lowest paying jobs
are in the hospitality and beauty industries. For example, food service
workers and hairstylists generally have the low salaries. These kinds of
jobs don’t require much education or training. But again, if you are
enjoying what you are doing, that may be good enough. For example, you
may enjoy talking with your customers. Spending you life doing something
you dislike can be very unsatisfying, even if the salary is high.
Some of the highest paid professions include doctors, lawyers and
scientists. However, these professions require high levels of education
and training. The path to becoming a doctor, for example, is a long one.
Doctors require a university degree, several years of medical school and
several more years of experience. Only then are they satisfied as a
medical doctor, or M.D. so it doesn’t make sense to consider these
professions, unless you are willing to work hard for many years. And of
course, you should really care about doing the work well.
