2. There are several factors we should take into account when choosing a career such as interest, ability, personality, pay, and so on. Interest is where our passion for work comes from. Ability guarantees that we are qualified for the job. Personality determines whether we are suitable for the job or not. And a good pay helps us to live a decent life.
