It's the start of the year and the COVID pandemic has slowly started to become the new normal. Even despite the recent variation outbreaks going on. The human population are slowly becoming more prepared and equipped on fighting this virus.
But one major backlash still persist within our society. The youth.
After 2 long years, 2022 might seem like a positive change. But young adults needs to still be prepared for a new set of challenges they might face this coming year. That includes infection outbreaks, inflation (lifestyle expenses increase) and the most scary of them all, a change in lifestyle.
Most Gen Z's now faces a big decision ahead: pursuing a university degree or getting a head start at working.
With the world on full reset, some individuals might even find themselves questioning their future decisions and planning. In this article, we will be breaking-down our personal insights from someone who has recent experience in choosing a future career path and university degree course.
Where Do You See Yourself In 5 Years?
Despite growing up in a major district in Sarawak, an underdeveloped state of Malaysia, I always considered myself a small-town boy. In 2015, I relocated myself here to pursue a 4-year Architectural degree at Taylor's University which I graduated on 2019. Just after 3 years, now I currently run both an online candle brand & a digital design agency.
Going into a design-stream course heavily shaped how my career path look like today. I started freelancing by the end of my last semester. Hence, we wouldn't suggest worrying about your career path. Instead, focus on choosing a course that you know you'll do best and enjoy the most.
Pursuing an educational degree is an investment. Your should know by now that your goal is to become financially independent after getting that degree. Parents are no longer obligated to finance your lifestyle.
Take note that, while you are taking working gap years to pursue your degree, you might also be missing out on time gaining actual working knowledge or sales experience.
conclusion… Pick what you think is most suitable for you. For some, it marks the first step of their live. Know that no matter what happens, you'll find that help is not very far away. Talk to your parents about their experiences to consider in your decision planning.
However, if you're having second thoughts and think that higher education might not be the right fit for you, voice out! Don't help them build up fake expectations on things that will never happen. Tell them your plans and ask if there's anything they can help you with. If not, do it yourself. You are fully capable of making your own decisions.
