Choosing a Career
[Written Especially for Young People]
We all know what is meant by the saying, "Just starting out in life." Some of us are at that very stage now. Others remember the experience clearly. The momentous question at such a period is, "What am I going to be?" or, "What am I going to do?" This is an important time, and right here Christian Science is a wise friend and counselor.
For the moment, let us follow the conventional path of thought. In working his way through to some definite conclusion, the youth will naturally consider the matter from various angles. Is there anything for which he seems particularly adapted? Is there anything he would very much like to do? Have his parents or teachers any definite views? There will be questions, on many points, which each one will necessarily answer for himself or herself.
But there are others based upon more general grounds, and here most people will be in agreement. First as to the job itself. We shall naturally prefer that it be something of real service to the world. We shall also require that it provide opportunity for progress, and advancement according to our capacities. Reasonable reward is another desirable feature. Then as to the employer. We shall naturally desire that he be kind, just, and fair, interested in our progress, and, in fact, one to whom we shall enjoy giving our best service.
