There are a lot of high school students in Turkey who are on the threshold of choosing a job for our future. Some have chosen their future job, but some have not and are unstable. The key idea for deciding your job is: “Trust yourself, and make sense.” Do not worry about your future job and be decisive to find the true job for you that you will enjoy.
There are a lot of options to choose from, but if someone doesn’t know what to choose they must start by examining jobs and discovering what they want to do for a portion of your life. No one has to choose just one line of work. If you have decided one main job, you can add something different to it. You can be a mechanical engineer and of course at the same time you can paint, write or whatever you like. There are a lot of people like that in the world, so do not worry about being unstable, but be concentrated about what you want to do. If you wonder about the people who are working with more than one job, there is someone below.
Ezel Akay is a successful director, but first he was an engineer. He graduated from Boğaziçi University Engineering Faculty
Murat Gülsoy is a successful writer and scientist. He graduated from Boğaziçi University Engineering Faculty and now he still continue his science studies, teaches creative writing, and he is interested painting, too. (Further reading in my interview featured in the newspaper.)
Cüneyt Arkın is a doctor, but he is a successful actor, too, we know him from his movies.
We could add a lot more example to these, like some teachers in our school who have two different jobs or who chose a job, and the decided to change it. Why don’t you ask your teachers something about this?
In my opinion, no one should restrict themselves; on the contrary everyone should head to different areas and attempt to develop themselves better. If you want to do something different and you have two choices, you must be careful about which one is easy to learn and choose the more difficult one. Over time, the more difficult one will become easier, and you will be able to do both things easily.
