Career Goals!

Tips: 0.00 INK Postby Alappassi on Tue Oct 22, 2013 2:08 pm

Im super nosy, ha, just kidding...
But really, what is your career goal? If you are still in High School, what will be your college major?
Basically, what do you want to be when you "grow up?" Why do you want to do what you want to do?

Im going to be a dog groomer. Im going to start out working for someone then have my own little shop in my house. I will also offer pet-sitting. I want to be a dog groomer because I love dogs and if I don't work with them on a daily basis I will end up bringing too many home O_o

I was attending college for Digital Graphic Design... yeah... I think I did a complete turn of events xD
Sighthounds, writing, and drawing are my passion!

Since the age of four I wanted to work with animals. I've had two fascinations in life. Animals and Crime. Both I really enjoy so all through school I focused on science. For GCSE we had no choice but to do science. For A-level's I picked Biology, Chemistry, Math, Environmental Science and Science for Public Understanding. And for university I went and did Zoology with Marine Zoology....

4-5 years after graduating, what am I doing? Working in child care.

I have done a proofreading and copy-editing course, a creative writing course and a diploma to become a paralegal secretary.

What do I want to do once I finish in the childcare industry? Simply to go into the legal field and be a secretary in an office, something I promised myself I'd never do - an office job. I was always going to work with animals. Funny how life turns out.

Currently getting a moderately successful business running, and be paid to write stuff from time to time too.

I used to assume I wanted a lot of recognition but I've actually realized I'd be happy just to have the freedom of earning a living wage on my own terms.
The only verdict is vengeance; a vendetta held as a votive, not in vain, for the value and veracity of such shall one day vindicate the vigilant and the virtuous. Verily, this vichyssoise of verbiage veers most verbose, so let me simply add that it's my very good honour to meet you and you may call me Vit.

Attending college for Information Science & Technology... a combined IT/Business major. I have my freshman engineering classes though and might switch to Geological or Metallurgical engineering. Decisions...

Career? haha I've sort of come to terms with the fact that I'm never going to have just one career.

Right now I'm working as a 3D artist for an Arch Viz company so that's my current career. I'm also co-producing an independent 3D film that's in the pre-production stages. We're planning to do a kickstarter for it to fund all of the hardware and software that we'll need to acquire (legally) to move into production. There is also a book in the works somewhere in the mix, though that one is moving very slowly. Eventually I hope to get it published.

Next month I'll be starting a course for music career development. Once my loans are paid off I'll be more free to pursue that road.

So yeah, sort of all over the place. Too much to do, not enough time it seems.
He who has ears to hear, let him hear
For this is a tale of an ancient kind
In the word there lies existence and the word became flesh
And dwelt among us and we saw its glory
Let him hear it who will

Well, I've changed my major three times. Now that I've got a little one I wish I could go kick myself in the butt. I didn't care enough about school. I should have stayed at my local community college rather than run off to university.

Married, working on my bachelors (still after my most my friends have graduated) and have a baby. I mean, marriage and babies is awesome, but go to school. Don't be like me and not take anything seriously until you realize there are things on the line. Baybehs and hubbehs and such.
