Consequences of a Bad Career Choice  Real Life Scenario

 “In this Blogs, I would like to give you a real case scenario as being a content writer I have met with one of the candidates in the office of Jobs Cruze at Pune so just thought of sharing with all you so that it would actually help you regarding the importance of choosing a correct career for your life”

Mr. John left a stressful and exhausting job. Now she's ready to start something new. The only question is, what? When you've got so many potential paths in front of you, how do you choose the right one?

1. What's your career history and current job?

My career background has been in teaching/training, general education, and records management. I've worked for both public and private sector organizations, at different levels. Most recently, I was working in administration and management for a youth training facility (certifications for job readiness: ages 16-24). Due to stress and a toxic work environment, I decided to leave my job around a year ago.

2. How do you feel about your work?

I get on well with children, particularly those from disadvantaged backgrounds. I enjoyed creating a friendly environment in which they could talk to me, and become more open to learning. I'm proud of the fact that in every job I've done, I've naturally taken on more responsibility, or been promoted. My work has made a difference – not just to the children's lives, but in improving the way things are done behind the scenes.

But I don't like the way the education system works. There are so much administration and bureaucracy, all set against a background of last-minute chaos. Constantly trying to keep on top of everything became very stressful. I also didn't enjoy the need for me to 'babysit' junior staff, or being asked to take over heavy workloads from other departments. Often, it felt like nobody was in control. I was working so many extra hours every week, taking on more and more responsibility, that it was starting to impact on my health.

After eight years at this facility (in various roles), I was exhausted. I knew I'd had enough of this contractor and this department of labor program for good, so I handed in my notice. Instead of finding a new job immediately, I decided to take some time out to relax and to travel. I wanted to give myself enough space to work out what my next career move should be and regroup mentally.

3. What would you like to be doing instead?

I've spent a lot of time thinking about new ideas. The things I most enjoy are helping people to fulfill their potential, streamlining processes, and monitoring detailed work. I'm particularly good at spotting errors that other people miss! I also enjoy being creative in a useful way that helps other people to learn, such as making spreadsheets and presentations visually clear and easy to read. Because of this, I've made a shortlist of potential career options. They include project management, training/development, auditing, technical writing, and desktop publishing.

4. What's the biggest obstacle in your way?

I don't know how to choose my new career!
