Essay:The Choice of A Career

A hundred years back no one worried about the choice of a career.The son of a
carpenter became a carpenter; an oilman would train his son in his own craft,and a
business-man would leave behind his business to his son.In this way the world went on
smoothly and very few persons were troubled by the question of the choice of a
who though about a career was called a "careerist".But the world in which we are living
today is very different.Everybody worries about the career he is going to follow .Even
uneducated parents are constantly worrying about the careers of their children.
The Choice of Career
The Choice of Career
Our career is determined by number of factors.Some children follow the career chosen
by their parents others carve a career for themselves.In many cases personal likes and dislikes go a ling way in the choice of career.Children born in the house of a commercial magnate naturally take to business.The business is already established,therefore it requires a little effort to settle down to a life of secure earning .The son of Henry Ford inherited the business of his father.He had not to trouble about the choice of a career .The successors of H.O. Wills were born to career for themselves.They have to work hard and fight against heavy odds.All great men of the world are made of this stuff.Take the case of Stalin or Bernard Shaw. Stalin. was the son of a poor cobbler ,yet he became one of the greatest men of our age.Shaw began his career in poverty.But by constant labour he made a name for himself.Such men are geniuses and a genius will always chalk out a career for itself.

Personal likes and dislikes, as I have said ,are some times the deciding actor in the
choice of one's profession.A person with poetic leanings would always like to be poor poet
rather be a successful druggist or an efficient civil servant The life of a successful druggist of a civil servant may be easy but it will crush his soul and the poet in him will be killed.Children with adventurous nature will be a great success in an independent profession,such as Law of Medicine .All great industrialists,who rise from poverty to power  ,are born with this impulse.

A child who lacks courage and confidence should never enter a profession which calls for
constant effort .Such a child  should always follow secure career like teaching and civil
service .He will earn monthly salary ,regular annual increments and when he retries his
pension will be fixed by the Accountant -General's office.This man will have an easy and
secure life like the bird in a cage,but beyond that he will have nothing.

In Pakistan every young man aspires to be a P.C.S. or C.S.P. officer .It seems our
young men have lost the spirit of adventure .They want a secure job with an easy living and no risk .It is time that more of our young men should enter independent career where they can find sufficient scope for their initiative .Above all,they should remember  that no profession is dignified in itself unless we bring dignity toil .It is not the career that counts but courage that we bring to it:
"When you've work to do ,boys,
Do it with a will.
They who would reach the top,boys
First must climb the hill."
