Choosing an Occupation

   One of the most difficult problems a young person faces is deciding what to do about a career.
   There are individuals, of course, who from the time they are six years old "know" that they want to be doctors or pilots or fire fighters, but the majority of us do not get around to making a decision about an occupation or career.
   Choosing an occupation takes time, and there are a lot of things you have to think about as you try to decide what you would like to do.
   You may find that you will have to take special courses to qualify for a particular kind of work, or may find out that you will need to get some actual work experience, to gain enough knowledge to qualify for a particular job.
   Fortunately, there are a lot of people you can turn to for advice and help in making your decision. At most schools, there are teachers who are professionally qualified to counsel you and to give detailed information about job qualifications.
   And you can talk over your ideas with family members and friends who are always ready to listen and to offer suggestions. But even if you get other people involved in helping you to make a decision, self evaluation is an important part of the decision-making process.

Выбор профессии

   Одна из самых трудных проблем, перед которой оказывается молодой человек — это выбор карьеры.
Конечно, есть люди, которые с шести лет «знают», что они хотят быть докторами, или летчиками, или пожарниками, но большинство из нас не находят времени для принятия решения о выборе профессии.
   Выбор профессии занимает время, и вы много о чем должны подумать, поскольку пытаетесь решить чем бы вы хотели заниматься.
   Вы можете обнаружить, что должны будете ходить на специальные курсы, чтобы приобрести квалификацию по определенному виду работы, или можете узнать, что вы должны будете получить некоторый опыт работы, получить достаточно знаний, чтобы подготовиться к какой-либо деятельности.
   К счастью, есть много людей, к которым вы можете обратиться за советом и помощью в принятии решения. В большинстве школ есть учителя, которые могут дать квалифицированный совет о профессии.
   И вы можете обсудить свои идеи с семьей и друзьями, которые всегда готовы выслушать и внести предложения. Но даже если вы обращаетесь к другим людям за помощью, самооценка — важная часть процесса принятия решений.
