It's the perfect time to discover what you want to do for a career while you're in school. You can learn more about yourself and your interests as well as which occupations will be good fits for you. You should always consider the future job market, pay rate and your personal desires when you choose. The following are some ideas for some of the best career choices you can make:



  1. A Career in Law


You should also think about entering the field of law. You can choose from a variety of fields to go into. You don't necessarily have to strive to be a lawyer. You could earn an amazing salary as a paralegal and be quite satisfied with the status. Paralegal jobs are expected to grow more than 10 percent from now until 2029. Therefore, you'll be joining a workforce that is likely to expand as the years go by. A promising career is always the best career to seek. While you're in school, you run for class president or treasurer or some other school-based political office. You may be able to develop some of the characteristics of good legal workers from involving yourself in campaigns and debates.



  1. A Space Career


There are many space careers that might be an interesting career for you to look into, as well. It might be fitting for you if you have a high interest in space-related objects as well as technology. You can start your training for a career in space today by signing up for information on courses and available job positions. There's really no limit to the amount of money you can make in the field.



  1. Computer Repair Career


You may also want to consider embarking on a career in computer repair if you have access to computers while you're in school. It's definitely possible to get the training you need in a computer-related field so that you can become a computer technician or expert a few years down the line.



Computer technicians earn more than $86,000 a year, depending on the company they work for and their exact position in the field. Job positions are expected to increase by about 1 percent by 2029. That's not bad, but it's not wonderful either.



  1. A Nursing Career


A nursing career is probably the most stable career you can seek when you're in school. The likelihood of nursing jobs increasing in the near future is very high. As a matter of fact, the Bureau of Labor Statistics says that nursing jobs will increase by at least 7 percent from now until 2029. Aside from that, nurses make amazing salaries. Therefore, nursing is an excellent adventure for you to consider. You can volunteer to help your physical education teacher or school nurse with some aspect of his or her job to get a few skills under your belt.



  1. AI Technology


You may also want to look into artificial intelligence technology since it's a growing field. You could start a career in artificial intelligence research, software engineering, natural language processing and many other fields related to developing or studying AI. AI is only going to become more advanced in the future. Therefore, this field will be perfect for you if you're looking to get into something stable that can take care of you for the rest of your life. The most important factor to consider when you're choosing a career is what you love to do. It's important to find a job that you love and will earn you what you desire at the same time. Speak to your school's guidance counselor if you feel that you need help landing on a good career. Guidance counselors are paid to get to know you and all the special talents you have. They're supposed to work with you to ensure that you make the best out of the life you have.


Start Your Amazing Career Today


Now you know a few of the career choices that will likely cause you to succeed. Go ahead and choose one of these and research it a little bit more. Be sure to check the current salaries and all the subdivision jobs you can apply for in the meantime. You might find something that's a perfect fit for you.
