Choosing a profession is an important stage in everyone’s life. This choice may have a huge impact on your entire future, and it requires a special approach and thorough research. When you’re young, you don’t want to be stuck with a job that has zero room for growth for ten years, do you? And on the other hand, a hefty salary is also a determining factor for a young specialist.
Taking into account these and other requirements, we’ve come up with the list of seven best jobs you should try before you hit 25.
Giving famous people trims and preparing them for going in front of the cameras is one of the most important jobs in showbusiness. Makeup artists and cosmetologists will be earning thousands of dollars, but only if their sense of style and craftsmanship are top-notch. You can start practicing on yourself or your family members, then get a training course to polish those newly acquired skills, and – voila! – you’re a makeup artist now!
This may sound odd, but designing clothes is not that hard. All you need to do is doodle a lot and have a vast visual library for your projects. A pocket here, a flap there, add some lines, and boom, you got yourself a new design! Now redraw it, make some more alterations, add some colors, and you will get a solid example of what it is like being a fashion designer. Naturally, nobody will want to look at your sketches, but that’s to be expected. If this is something you enjoy, just keep at it. Start an Insta page, maybe a Patreon, and if you’re good-looking, proudly showcase your creations on your own body!
You can never go wrong with a good photoset, as long as you have the right equipment, an eye for a good shot, and the price tag doesn’t look like a phone number. Sure, there are some technicalities, like setting up your camera and color-correction, but it’s generally a very fun and lucrative endeavor, especially since everyone carries a semi-professional camera in their pockets nowadays.
If you’re not afraid of flying and would love to see the world (after it goes back to normal), maybe give this profession a try. Most of the time, you’ll be fine, but you need to be prepared for everything: crazy passengers, drunk passengers, and most importantly, babies that won’t stop crying. The paychecks are pretty good, too!
You may have noticed that this profession has been in high demand for the last couple of years. Today people can design anything from 3D models of cars and furniture to Twitch emotes and web-sites, so if you’re good with Photoshop, this could be your meal ticket.
More and more people can’t wait to break free from the lockdown and travel to a place far from where they are now, and you’ll be the one to help them choose their destination. This job is quite easy and requires nothing more than being friendly, patient, and sometimes a bit persistent. The pay may not be that great at first, but working with people will always be a good addition to your resume.
The early 20s’ are the best time to mess around in the YouTube/Twitch department. Content creators are a dime a dozen these days, but many of them seem to be doing just fine, earning thousands of dollars just for their charismatic personality. It could be gaming, making music, drawing, playing D&D – the online world is your oyster. Just remember that it takes time to get things rolling. Who knows, maybe you’re the next PewDiePie or Valkyrae. Whatever you do, we wish you good luck!
