Do you already know what would you like to do in your life?
I want to become a professional photographer, it's my great passion and I love to take picture everywhere. My friends can't stand me no more because I always have my reflex with me.

Photographers make a wonderful contribution to our aesthetic world. Photographs allow us to experience that which we otherwise would never be able to see. I appreciate how photographers document life. I wish you good fortune in the pursuit of your dream.

Economist or Econometrician.

Though Intellectual Historian with a focus on 19C Europe or a more general Economic Historian is something I'd considered.

Man I wish I knew what I wanted to be. The preferable course is being my own boss and being an entrepreneur; however, I'm not very creative and am unsure of what I'd have to offer consumers.

I'll go to college. Still not sure what degree to get. Being a lawyer was a thought, but I'm not quite sure.

Lol not quite sure what you mean, but a lot of people say that to me. What career do you think I should go into? I want to see if you think the same way that others whom I have talked about this do.

I'm not sure myself what I thought you'd be. A doctor was not my first thought. From your posts, I know your a suporter of gun ownership, pretty sure your into trucks, and no offense with this I just don't know how else to describe it "a redneck" kinda perception I guess? And that's not a bad thing. I see it as a grounded, level headed, knack to basics and reason kinda guy. It's a good thing.

Ranch owner? Maybe....someone who defineatly lives in that type of area. Hunter gatherer, provider, take care of yourself sort of guy. So I guess you'd be pretty successful at owning a business. Maybe a large well known truck repair/welding shop. Something sort of outdoors and physical in nature. But also supporting outdoors things

How far off am I?

LOL that is actually really funny. Everyone tells me that I should go into business or law, not medicine.

I get why you all think that I am a redneck or into trucks because of my support for guns and the outdoors. In reality, however, I am quite the opposite. Isn't it funny how these things work.

Yes, I have know for years what career I wanted. My delima now is how to go forward with the education panl to get there. I am only 19 and a senior in college. Do I go to law school first or get a masters first. Guess it depends on how I do on GRE and LSAT.

What would you plan to get your masters in?

Does law school also mean J.D., or something else?

I'd have said Business consulting, or some other MBA-Y route.

Considering how comfortable you seem with the topics that pervade ROTW, I always find this strange.

But I guess when you only get to know people through your disagreements, you probably end up with a pretty distorted image.

I think that I am more curious than most people. Or that I care more about things. This is why I have such strong convictions. I do like foreign policy and current events, I used to want to get into journalism or science writing. But I have always had a passion for nature and growing things. ROTW doesn't talk about that so much. I have wanted to start a thread on GMOs, but I am not sure of the reception.

There is no specific career that I envisage. Of course in finance, I am particularly interested in the markets' mechanisms, though some things like merges&acquisitions are intriguing, haha, got a lot of study before that.
I'd ideally manage investment funds, I've always dreamed of holding companies tbh.
Already got some projects with buds to invest our capital on stockmarkets, nothing gigantic but that's the first step towards owning the Berkshire Hathaway.

Ideally I'd like to write books and live from the Author's Rights. That would literally give me years of free thinking.

Interesting that I read this tonight. I met with my advisor this morning and he is suggesting a program that combines an MBA with J.D. in business law. Will not make a decision until I take GRE and LSAT. Man, this is so confusing and just more than a little stress inducing. Also, I will only be 20 when I graduate next spring. My mentor at work has a JD in business law, so he is a lot of help as a sounding board-he is really very supportive and encouraging. I am going to spend the week end with my parents and bounce all this around. My mom has an MBA.

I build websites, SEO. Currently have an internship in an advertising agency.
I'm planning to have my own company in the future. Maybe a nightclub, or a porn-production company, or something in the fashion industry... Not sure yet. To invest in researching my mortality insecurity would be cool too, i.e., cloning or bionic limbs research.

I actually have a pretty concrete plan of what I want to do. But since the whole education system here is very different from the US, I have no idea how to explain my plans. I can just say that I want to work in IT.

I've switched so many times over the years. I've always had an interest in medicine or pharmacy, but the school effort seems too much for me. I think my plan now is to see if I like psychology, and to try to become a therapist, or maybe a psychiatrist one day.

Where I live becoming a therapist is just as hard as becoming a doctor. But I guess that's not the case in the US, is it?

To become a therapist here, you just need to get your masters degree (4 years of bachelors degree + 2 years) and then somehow get your license (from what I understand). Becoming a doctor requires a Bachelors (4 year degree), and then medical school for 4 years, then residency training for 3-7 years.

After long years of hesitation I've decided I want to be a materials engineer, because yeah I would love doing something that involves both math and the sciences in a significant quantity. It's too bad though that so many young people feel pressured to pick a "high-end career" as they call it here just because it brings more money. We need people to pursue their passion whether it be music or art or writing, etc. It's awesome that you recognize that you're passionate about photography and you should definitely pursue that as a career :)

Something in the medical field I'm just not quite sure yet since I won't be able to finance becoming a doctor. Guess I'll end up as a paramedic or so.

I love photography as well, and share the same instinct to take pictures anywhere and everywhere, I take my camera about everywhere.

On topic: I want to be a journalist, and am going to school for just that, my dream job is to be an Executive producer for a prime time news program, I hate current news programs and would love to help create a good one.

I think my love for photography is closely tied with my love for journalism. Not only do I love creating beautiful photography, and artistic photography, I love capturing the moment, creating a photographic document of the occasion! I sell prints to local galleries, and sell photos online and actually make a decent amount doing so! It's a good form of income if you like photography, and are good at it!


That sounds really cool! I wish you good luck with this dream! :)

And in my case I haven't decided yet :) I have three main ideas: the career in art, linguistics or medicine :cool: I have talent and some art skills but I'm not sure if it'll be enough for becoming a relly cool artist :confused: It's the same with the medical career, I'm interested in the career of radiologist http://nursection.com/radiologist-assistant-salary/ but again I'm not sure if I can study good in this sphere, as I know being a medical student is a rather hard experience! :what:
So I suppose that it'll be linguistucs but still... I'm thinking and can't make the final choice! :D

The popular notion that you need to have talent or natural to be a successful artist is kind of a joke. Art is a craft of discipline and practice believe it or not. The best most famous artists weren't the best because they were naturally gifted (though it may have helped), they were the best because they practiced their trade and refined their skills. You have the potential to be an amazing artist you just have to practice and refine your skills. When I first got into photography people told me my pictures looked like shit, because they did. Now I sell dozens, if not hundreds of prints a month, some for hundreds of dollars. It took time, practice, and a few not so nice critiques, but Now I'm happy with the content/art I produce, and apparently so are others! :)

I'll probably be an auditor in 5 or 6 years, but only to get experience and get a work as a FP&A(financial planner and analyst) because is one of the easiest paths to win over 100k or maybe 150k without working until 10 pm daily, and before 30.
Yeah, It's pretty boring:P
