Do you need to know what career you want when at school?

These days there is so much pressure to chose the correct GCSE and A Level subjects that some students find the whole process very daunting, I know I did.

You may feel like you need to have a good idea of what career path you wish to take from an early age and the subjects you chose at 15 will decide the job you will have for the rest of your life.

This is not always the case and regardless of how old you are, most of the time you can take a total change in jobs.

You my find it slightly harder to return to studying when you are older as you may have more responsibilities like a family or financial commitments and often as an adult you will have to pay for all or most of your further education. This being said, there are sometimes other ways round a change in career such as on the job training or evening studies that will allow you to progress in a career without having to worry about the issues above.
