If you are feeling a little stuck in a rut and bored with your job role this year, part of you might consider changing and starting with something entirely new.
Choosing a new career can be a big challenge and it can take a long time to figure out what is right for you. Today we are going to look specifically at some great career ideas for those of you who love kids.
For anyone who loves children, one of the best careers you could choose is the one which will allow you to see those crucial first steps of life in the hospital. Becoming a midwife or neonatal nurse can be one of the most rewarding jobs in the world as you’ll be able to share in those first moments of life with the parents and the baby in question. You can take an online neonatal nurse practitioner program and get started right away to join a career which you can truly enjoy.
If you fancy yourself a bit of a performer, a great idea for you this year could be to visit children’s parties and offer entertainment. There are lots of different types of children’s entertainment so make sure to do a little digging and see which type will fit you the best. If you have a favourite superhero or Disney princess to dress up as this can be a great choice because children love to meet their heroes.
If you have an academic mind and you love to be around children every day then a job as a teacher could be a great choice for you. As a teacher you will be there at a crucial stage in a child’s life and you’ll be able to help mould them into a better person for the years to come. You can either choose a specialist subject and teach in a high school or you can instead teach primary aged children and cover a range of subjects.
If you love the idea of being able to play with children all day long and keep them entertained, opening up a nursery in your local area can be a wonderful idea. As a nursery owner you will be able to offer children in your local area some care during the day and you will also be able to make friends with a lot of the parents in your area too. It can be a fun job as you’ll be able to enjoy finger painting, TV and sport all day every day!
If you have a speciality subject which you know a lot about and you don’t want to work in a school, you could instead become a workshop teacher and travel around to give special classes to schools and community groups. Also if you work somewhere such as a museum or a zoo you can teach school trip groups about your given subject and give them fun tasks to try. It can be a rewarding and creative job and one which will provide you with something new each day.
