Choosing the right career for you could be a decision you came too easily, or perhaps you’re still thinking about it. We are expected to know what we want to do during our school years, and for some of us we just don’t know where our skills lie best. However, many of us will agree that we have an idea of the type of job we want to do and for some of us, the thought of sitting at a desk all day clocking on and clocking off isn’t what we want. So I thought I would share with you some of the alternative career paths that you can take to avoid the office environment. Perhaps it might help you make that tricky decision.
Work in the beauty sector
The beauty sector is so vast that deciding you want to work in this industry could mean a whole host of different job options. From becoming a hair stylist, makeup artist or even nail technician or skin care expert, to name a few. Sometimes even just having an interest in your own look can prompt that desire to work with beauty products or enhancements. Of course, for many jobs in the beauty sector, it requires you to learn some new skills so it might be worth choosing a degree in this field and consider cosmetology school loans to help fund your continued education.
Create online videos or start a blog
The online world has picked up the pace in recent months and years, and you now find people writing high profile blogs or creating YouTube content to be earning a living. Being an online creator is fast becoming the chosen career for many, so why not you. With success stories from people like Zoe Sugg to inspire, anyone can give this a go. Although writing a blog and creating content should not be expected to make you a consistent living straight away.
Consider a career as a driver, there are plenty of options
Driving isn’t just a normal career option anymore, there are plenty of prospects in the driving industry you could consider. From long distance truck driving which can offer lucrative pay, to driving buses for the general public. You could even go as far as teaching people how to drive. It definitely beats the boring office environment and certainly would add variety to your working day.
If you think you have what it takes then why not try and enter the modeling industry. It can be quite a select industry to work in, but it all depends if you have the motivation and look a particular client would be after. The best place to start is to create a portfolio and see whether any agencies would be interested in representing you.
A career in music
Just like modeling, some people might also aspire to break into the music industry and perform and write songs that will have huge chart success. While a career in this industry isn’t unheard of it takes a lot of work and dedication to get your voice heard. Some upcoming stars are taking to platforms like YouTube to help break into the music industry.
I hope this has inspired you with some alternative career paths to take.
