As people have evolved over time the concept of work have changed. There was a time when asked What do you plan to do after school? the reply would come as Engineer, Doctor, Scientist or Teacher. Nowadays, if asked what people would want to be, one would get surprising answers.
People are more inclined towards non-traditional occupations. Some do jobs for need, some for fun and some in lack of any other option. The choice, therefore, is exercised after an objective assessment of the tangible benefits of the job. Jobs that used to be considered embarrassing, are now getting a lot takers who are willing to do what it takes. It is no longer just about money or perks, it’s about finding passion, purpose and vitality.
Choosing unusual career paths doesn’t come easily or without a cost. The choice can create stress, guilt, and feelings of insecurity. But sometimes taking a risk is actually the best bet if it means a better alignment of one’s interests with their careers.
