5- What is the job market like?
When choosing your career, it is interesting to know the job prospects and wages associated with a profession. But remember that a career option with few job opportunities does not necessarily mean that you have to reject it. Often, making a conscientious choice to prepare yourself to work contractually or seasonally can make a big difference in the way you cope with the realities of the profession you love.
