I am just graduated from spm. Not sure what career to choose in the future. What job is the best in the future?

Used to think of becoming a lawyer. But heard that lawyers nowadays are oversaturated. So I have changed my mind.

But one thing for sure , business profession is a BIG NO NO NO for me(banking, financing, business admin etc etc). (I hate business biggrin.gif )

Your advice is highly appreciated. thumbup.gif thumbup.gif

Even becoming a doctor also need to know how to do business

Sometimes doctor recommending you things you don't need but it will earn you extra bucks.

Like example : "Many cancer patient also buy this K brand water purifier, it is proven to be better scientifically compared to your usual water purifier"

How do you define "good" / "best"? "Best" in terms of what? Pay? Job satisfaction? Yada yada.

I thought its best to let us know what you like and don't like first. Not the other way round.

Later it'll be like the older days

- doctor, pilot, engineer, lawyer, accountant etc etc.

Go for A-Level, pre-U, matriculation, or STPM if undecided.
You cannot join any degree program without a pre-U qualification.

If you want good pay, look for those with professional body accreditation.
Yup, you get low pay at the beginning, but once you got your license, signature alone can make money.

All the best!

what job would be best suited for you?

it's very hard to say what job is best when everything is saturated. if u look at the market, the foundation is nothing new. it's the ideas that cutting edge.

so i suggest to explore ur interest that makes u happy instead of thinking what job in the future can give money.

Agree w/ the other comments in here to look at your talents and interests.
I think lawyer's pretty good... those "hot courses/career" seem to be fine
If you're really determined, choose a "popular course" or STEM, do ur best in uni, build leadership, soft skill, project management skill, and aim for the best whatever u decide to do, never give up
You're still in SPM so choose carefully, goodluck!

good means jobs with high demand in the future.

I know IT jobs or computer science are very good. but I am not very interested cry.gif

on the other hand I searched online about demand jobs in Malaysia are mostly IT jobs and business ( finance, accounting, human resource and marketing ),but I am not interested in both .

So what the other jobs would also likely be in high demand ??? hmm.gif hmm.gif

For now - social media and content creation as well. For South East Asia - maybe digital entertainment like game dev?

Why don't you learn a trade like electrician. Never go out of work guaranteed.

That's another good idea - technical and vocational trade. Electrician, plumbing, aircon servicing and all that. very specialized and very much in demand especially overseas like Australia. It's just that due to cultural and social norms, it doesn't seem glamorous in an Asian context.

Which job you choose will not automatically guarantee become like batman or ironman.
The human connections you build along your career path will carve your future.
-Build your own network starting with your colleague in your first job.
-You'll carve a better career road if you maintain good relationship with them as you move across different company.
Yes.. your colleague or your employers will also hop across different company. Who knows the first thing they got into the company as a HOD, they might contact you if you're interested for a better position .
They might even tell you that resume is just for show. They can wave of all the silly JD requirements even your resume sux.
-Always go for self enrichment programs. You need to update yourself.
-And last , passive income is the key to retirement. Nowadays, you can't survive on just purely payroll or pay cheques. It might be sufficient for yourself. But when you have a family, you know it's not even close to enough.

There're going to be a change of job expertise with new direction in this pandemic. Starting with Robotics and AI.
I've not know how's the progression of Quantum computing these days. But definitely worth updating some basic knowledge into that along the road.

I always recommend those courses with mathematic intensive like engineering, science, IT etc, if you don't consider doctor or lawyer such a specialise occupation (except those art etc related). To my experience, those engineering, science, IT graduates can work in many fields without problem. If you able to check the high pay wall street fat cat, many of them with strong mathematic background, not necessary must be banking/business/finance qualification.

Actually, just choose what area that interests you or that will keep you interested in. And whatever job you choose, just make sure you put in all your time, effort and passion. It's the person that makes the success happen and not the job.

Hey... you know what.
I was like you, not interested in all those things (and not even know what the hype was about)
Then I went crazy and chose a social science/arts course, and now I'm stuck here, totally regret it
(It's not even what I want in the first place, as I said I went crazy lol)

When they say you'll change after a few years, it's not completely untrue.
That's when you regret you should've gone for "popular course", professional course, STEM, IT... all those course that need science/technical skills
When you feel the desperation, you'll push yourself to study anything, at least that's what's happening to me, but it's too late

So maybeee you should aim for those if possible, and try to learn something out of it
You never know when those professional skills will come in handy in the future
For business don't take general business, take accounting
or finance (if you're good at talking and stuff, sorry idk much im just saying)

Unless you're very talented in an arts field or something, then you can study that, or study where your interest lies
Otherwise those popular courses will be fine, get through the 3/4 years and get your salary

Again, you're still in SPM. Don't end up like me hahaha

It really depends on your character, there is no final say based on what you felt now. I suggest not to judge by job saturation but your own interest. Also, don't look down on any profession, respect and be humble. Every profession has its contribution to the society.

Trust me, fate / reality is cruel.

While our life goes on, our character may change. It could be out of desperation. Thus your first choice will be limited to what you got at the first place. But don't fret. Also, if you expect progression, you will not be limited to the work that you found during the early stage, you may take more responsibilities that cover other job scope (accounting, business, sales, technical, procurement, supply and logistic, HR, PR), these are all part of management.

What you chose now may not even be the nature of the work you are doing later in the future. But that's also how life become interesting, work is not work only but also part of life experience.

But if you are looking for some directions, you may want to consider the specific kind of field you are interested, e.g. medical, pharma, security, plantation, manufacturing, tech, edu, f&b, ecommerce, etc. Every field has their own technician, management, admin and support. Lawyer knowledge is needed in all field. Business skills are also needed in all fields. As well as technician and executives. Many thought edu is limited but actually no, think about SUNWAY and UCSI, or gomen uni then we can realize there is also organization with different positions of different job scope in it. Same with research institutes.

Many starts as a salaryman. Unless you are comfortable being a salaryman, with fix 9-6, routine work (which will get bored and burnout or lose passion very soon -> this is how uneasiness and desperation come) and don't mind to keep jumping ships (even jumping ships will reach a point where you are tired of it)

OR you could join any corporate as a management trainee or apprentice, normally will get many opportunities to learn.

Job that requires professional qualification (eg. lawyer, doctor, chartered accountant, certified engineer) won't oversaturated.

I would advice that you may go think deeper what job you want to do in the future and what are your life target? Eg. Financial freedom before xx? Work in stable salaried job? 9-6 job till 55? Commission job? Or save money and startup?

Then think about the cost to fulfill these. For example study something at oversea/local U will spend(invest) rm xxxk in 3 years, then your potential career worth this “Investment in uni” or not? Need ask yourself is this the career you want or not in the future.
I have seen a lot people from non rich family spent a lot money send their children go oversea study but after years they came back doing nothing related to what they studied, some quit their job become xx agent, then quit xx agent become yy agent etc. I didn’t say spent this money to widen your mindset or knowledge are bad, but asked yourself first, is it worth or not? If one’s purpose is to earn money, use this rmxxxk to do other things might also be another option.
Most youngster don’t know what they want in the future and simply follow others to choose course

These industries sound great but not here, where u most likely end up as lab assistant or salesman.
And has to be PHD to do research. Luckily we have Spore.
