confused career

When I grow up I am going to be ...an Accountant? a Doctor? a Pharmacist? a Programmer? This is the place to tell us about your choice and the reasons for your choice, and to seek advice from others.

Alaykum Salaam

I can imagine the frustration and the confusion.

I was in a similar situation sometime ago.

Ask is testing out a helpline service. Currently it works via email/pm or phone.

Pm myself or brother Mazhar should you need to contact the counselor via phone

You are most welcome

If i were to ask you, what would be your first five choices of a career, in descending order, what would they be?

Thats good. You are already in a better stage than I was.

I didnt even know what I wanted to do, and never got down to applying for universities abroad as it was not even an option!

The counselors are volunteers who work with condition of anonymity. Some are youth volunteers and some are adults with qualifications

There is also an exercise to build references. Hence, if the counselors cannot help, they can refer you to a counselor who can help one on one.

You are most welcome.

I am sending you a pm with details on how the counselor can help.

This happens to all of us. Sometimes I feel like dropping everything and running away to an island and just doing nothing or doing something different.

Dont let it worry you. Inshallah, things have a way of working out for the best.

On the left of this space, you will see a small msn like icon with 'pm' written. If you click on it you can pm me

Likewise, you can look for any member by clicking on the 'members' link on the top right end of any page and click on their 'pm' icon to pm them.

The second method is after you write my name in the compose box, click 'Add' or 'Add [BCC]'. The message will then go.
