You are the only person who knows what the best career is for you. No one else can make the final decision. You can receive advice and guidance from your parents, school counselors and others, but ultimately you will be the one to decide which career path to follow.
Depending on the career you choose, you may want to consider earning a master degree. This post-graduate degree can be very beneficial especially if you are entering the educational or medical field.
In the educational field, a person with a master degree can often negotiate for a higher salary, or may be eligible to teach in higher grades. Having an advanced degree may also help you obtain promotions or move into higher positions in other areas of the educational field.
In the medical field, a master degree can often mean holding higher positions. In nursing, for example, those who hold higher degrees can work in management or administrative positions. If they prefer to remain in patient care, they may be able to negotiate for higher salaries or even have more of a say in the shifts they work.
An advanced degree can often be earned online. This allows you to start pursuing your chosen career while continuing your education. If you prefer to earn a higher degree in a “traditional” college setting, you may still be able to adjust your schedule so you can work or take an intern position in the career you have selected for yourself and still have enough time to study and meet all the requirements for your post-graduate degree.
