A career is commonly understood to be a course that will carry an individual through life. This is a plan of action that one must decide on in their later years in school and have to reach a decision by the time they gain entry into college. This is important because the subjects one chooses in college will determine their eligibility into training programs and university programs too.
Let us take an instance of an individual who wants to make aviation a career option. This individual must fully understand the requirements of the job – or rather the educational qualifications that will make him or her eligible for entry to pilot training school.
These days it is important to choose the science stream of studies in college then graduate to a University with a bachelor’s degree in science and math. Now, knowing the difficulty many people have grasping these two subjects it is easy to understand the importance of deciding early in school and seeking the proper guidance from councilors and elders so that one may begin preparing early in life for a career in aviation.
The same may be said about any career option that an individual may decide on. Be it medical, accounting, law, civil service or the like. It is imperative to decide early enough to be able to study the relevant subjects to be eligible for the training program.
Careers do not really have to be a profession that an individual adheres to through life. Many people have been known to change their careers in midlife and even adopt a different career after retirement. While a career is normally understood to be a profession that one is trained in and qualified to practice through life, there are many career options that do not need special training.

With the internet making inroads into the homes of millions of families today, adolescents are able to educate themselves and become aware of the many career options available to them and how they are expected to prepare for a particular career. This is perhaps the most important advantage today’s youth have over yester years youth.
