Career Ideas For 2021
It has been a crazy past year and had a lot of us re-evaluate our life choices. People who might have thought they were happy in a career are now deciding that it is time to do something new. Those that previously didn’t like the job that they were in have had the time to retrain, taking part in skills courses in the evening and researching what other jobs are out there. Yet not everyone knows exactly what it is they want to do. And this can be tricky. If you don’t know what profession is for you, you can feel a bit lost and it can be a deterrent for going out and finding a new job. Just remember, life is too short to do something you don’t enjoy and while you should work to live not live to work, you want to enjoy what you do. We spend 5 out of 7 days at work and so it needs to be something that makes us happy. If you are thinking of a new career, here are some ideas that you could look into…
A career in dentistry
If you have always wanted to be a dentist but not got round to it, then why not make this year the year that you do? You can soon learn everything from how to whiten teeth to how to fit mini dental implants. It is a great job as you know that you are looking after others and can make a real difference in their lives. The pay for this can be pretty good too which is another bonus!
Becoming a freelancer
If you are a creative and want flexibility in your career, then why not become a freelancer? There are many freelance roles that you can do, including being a photographer, a writer and a marketer. It can be hard to pitch for jobs, but the roles can be better paid and you will be doing something that you really love every single day. Sites such as People Per Hour or Fiverr are great for finding freelance jobs that you can apply for.
A job in travel
If you love to travel, then why not incorporate this into your career? There are many roles here, from being a travel journalist to a flight attendant or a travel agent. You will get to hopefully travel the world while also getting paid. What could be better than that? Do some research for this as there are many different roles and some of them require a lot of training and some qualifications too.
These are just a few ideas that you can try for your new career. Be sure to do your research and find out all the steps involved. If you know someone that works in the industry already it can be a good idea to speak to them and find out just what the role entails. What are some top careers that you would like to do?
