It can be difficult to know exactly what you want to do when you leave school, and as the career advisors are nearly always useless, I thought it might be wise to write and release a short post highlighting four really cool career ideas. They won’t be suitable for everyone, but they should give you some inspiration, and so after reading through, you might have thought of the ideal opportunity. So, give me your full attention and spend the next couple of minutes checking out the suggestions I’ve made below.
Obviously, you’ll need to choose something that suits your skills and personality to guarantee you'll enjoy the job, and you shouldn’t rush into anything. Instead, make sure you take time to research the day to day realities of any career you may consider. A good idea is to watch documentaries online, as this will show you exactly what the job will involve.

1. Police Officer
If you’re one of those people who like to see justice served, becoming a police officer could allow you all the job satisfaction you’ll ever need. So long as you have a squeaky clean record, and you don’t mind getting involved in other people’s business, you could rise through the ranks quickly and earn a good wage in no time. You don’t even have to understand the law properly, as your actions are only affected by a small portion of it.
2. Construction Specialist
Contrary to popular belief, you don’t have to find work as a builder to make money from the construction industry. You could seek employment at a merchants—a company that deals with powered access sales, or anything related to this industry. Of course, understanding the basics of building will make it easier to get involved in this area, but there’s no reason why you can’t pick everything up as you go along.
Presuming you have good maths skills, finding work in an accountant’s office should be simple. You’ll need to start at the bottom, but this is a good thing, as it means you’ll get to learn more and more desirable skills as you move up the ladder. You could even start your own accounting business in the future based on all the skills you’ve acquired.
4. Land Surveyor
Admittedly, you’re going to need a degree in a relevant subject to get the highest paid roles, but there’s still a lot you can do without official qualifications. Also, this job will allow you to work outdoors most of the time, which means you’ll really enjoy the summer months. Just make sure you buy lots of warm clothes for the other seasons. Opting to settle for a job like this could see you earning somewhere in the region of $30,000 to $90,000 per year, so it’s certainly not to be sniffed at.
Hopefully, those suggestions will have sparked some great ideas in your own mind, and now you’re a little closer to finding the perfect employment opportunity.
