What to Study

what-to-study-next

Many times, especially when change countries, we are confronted with a huge question:

“What I am going to do?”

Maybe back home, our professional decisions have been based more on the “need” that the “desire”.

In many of my consultations, I see clients asking me what they should study next. Moving to Australia myself, I completely understand that this question is a deeper meaning, what to study that will lead me to PR.

It is very hard for me to say what the client should do with their life and what they should study as there are many factors involved in this process, including change in the list of occupations, financial capacity, professional interest, jobs in demand, etc. My suggestion to all clients is to do what you like doing, for you, not for anyone else or pressure.

It may sound very cliche, I agree, but in Australia it is true. Do what you love and people will recognize and compensate you for that. The employer will note that the quality of your work, the commitment, the dedication and this way, you will recognized by your efforts.

It still can be daunting. What to do? I have never thought about what I like. I have been there too. I found that talking to a career counsellor is sometimes a good start, doing a structured quiz (please answer truly), talking to professionals in the field (everyone is always up for a coffee).

Only then, start searching for a college/universities that offers what you are interested in. Even then, talk to previous students, listen to their opinion, try to be present in a classroom for a class, try to know the teacher’s professional background, they will be your best source of information and network for that great job position that you want.

Enjoy the Process.
