Many students start thinking about college in their junior and senior years. It can be very hard deciding what to do for a living, and the choices can be quite tough at times.

If you are having trouble deciding, here are some options on what you could do.

Medical. If you are into medical things and like to help people with their illnesses, consider a career as a doctor, surgeon, or even anesthesiologist. There is lots of studying and schooling needed to get to this point, but it is worth it because, in the end, the money will pay off.

Auto Mechanic. If you like dealing with tools and fixing things, then this job could possibly be for you. Many trade schools offer this as a class. You can work on everyday cars or diesel trucks.  The only disadvantage to this job is you have to get your hands dirty a lot

Hair Cutting. After a few years of school, you can become a barber or stylist and even open up your own shop and start your own business. You can make the prices for the haircuts as high as you want.

Landscaping. It is very simple to start your own landscaping company, all you need is a few basic things you can find at Home Depot or Lowes such as a lawnmower, blower, weed eater, trimmer, rake, shovel, etc.

Business Management. The really fun part about this is you can become a manager at a store and become a boss. Mangers have relatively simple jobs like computer work, stocking, and keeping employees in line and get paid a decent amount.

Hopefully, with these options you have a better understanding of what you might want to do. Always remember one important thing is that going to college is not always the best option and don’t feel pressured to do so.
