It can be really difficult deciding what you want to do in this life for your career because everyone of us wants to find the right kind of work/life balance so that we are not working every day that God sends us and so we are so exhausted when we get home that we don’t have time to spend quality time with our friends and family.
If you are at the very beginning of your career or you are thinking of making a change then this time you need to go a little slower and try to figure out what it is that you want to do for the rest of your working life. There are many things to consider like the amount of time that you have to be at the office and the amount of money that you can earn over the course of a business year.
For this article, we will talk about a career in the finance sector because it has so much to offer young people who are just starting out in the job market or people who already have a position and they would like a change in direction. Being a Financial Controller for example, is a job in a very competitive and highly demanding field and yet it is also incredibly rewarding. If this has struck a chord with you and you would like to consider a career in finance then the following are just some of the benefits of working in this particular sector.
- The potential to earn – When you are involved in the financial sector you can expect to receive a salary that is incrementally higher than in any other job field. For those of you who have just graduated, even entry level positions come with high pay and if you put in the effort and you put in the hours at the very beginning, this no reason why you can’t work your way up the career ladder and enjoy increases in pay along the way.
- A work/life balance – People often talk about this but in reality they just can’t put things in place to make it happen. The beauty about working in the financial sector is that you can strike a balance between your work life and your personal life and it is entirely possible that you can choose your own schedule when you work and when you don’t work.
- Many career options – There are so many different careers available in the financial sector including becoming a financial controller as was discussed before or any other professional position that involves any one aspect of the financial sector. You’re also afforded the flexibility for growth and if it is your goal to travel while working then in most cases your position will not be location specific.
Then there is your job security to think about because you can be fairly sure that AI isn’t going to be making inroads into this particular sector just yet. Financial positions are in great demand so there will always be another job waiting to you if you decide that this one isn’t right for you.
