Advice Letter about Choosing a Career

The man is a social animal and he needs to adopt some profession to live in this society. In a today’s world, every profession seems to be charming. Especially, when we see professionally successful persons but every glitter is not gold. The correct choice of carrier decides one’s future. Therefore, it is a very tricky thing to make a good choice according to one’s capabilities for choosing a profession.

However, this is not possible without the proper guidance of our elders because they had been through ups and downs of life. Our elders also know the scope of profession keeping in view our capabilities and attitude.

The best idea to choose some career is to ask from the professionals who are already in the same profession. They can guide you because they exactly know the pros and cons of the profession. In the view above, it is, therefore, the best option to write a letter to your relative or any person you already know to ask guidance about particular career choosing.


I want to congratulate you on your excellent result in A-levels. This is a proof of your hard work and dedication. I always knew that you will do well and bring accolades to the family.

I received your letter inquiring about the options for a future career path. This is probably one of the most crucial points in your life. The decision you take now would effect your entire life. My advice would be the same as Confucius when he said, “choose a job you love and you will never have to work a day in your life.”

Seeing your result and your aptitude I feel that the field of medical sciences would be a great choice for you, be it MBBS or Pharmacy or the other related fields. Your excellent grade in chemistry and Biology, show your natural inclination towards this area of studies. Regardless to say that it is a very rewarding field, both personally and professionally.

There is a lot of scope for growth along with the opportunity to earn a good living. Also few professions offer a chance to serve humanity as much as Medical. It must be very satisfying to see patients come in pain, worried and stressed; but once they leave the hospital they are cured and healthy.

In the end I would like to offer my felicitations once again on your excellent result. I hope my advice guides you in the correct direction and helps you make a decision. If I can be of any more assistance please let me know. Wishing you all the best for the future.


I received your letter detailing all you have gone through and asking me for career advice. I would like to begin by praising you for having the courage to step out of an abusive marriage. It is not a small step and it takes immense courage and strength to break out of a toxic relationship. Your concerns regarding earning a respectable living for yourself and your son are very valid and require immediate attention.

I, after consulting a few friends and thinking long and hard, have come to the conclusion that the best course of action would be for you to take a teaching job in your son’s school for now. Meanwhile start a home based business using your knitting and/or cooking skills.

Increasingly there has been a trend of small home based businesses starting from very small scale and growing as they create a market for their products. The teaching day job would provide you with a small but stable income till your business establishes.

I have seen the gifts you knit for friends and family and I truly believe that you have the potential to turn this skill in to a successful and well paying business. Also your excellent cooking skills can help you earn a very handsome amount as home cooked food is all the rage these days. You can start by catering one dish initially and grow as you go.

There are many one-dish millionaires in this city who basically started with catering from home and went on to establish their own restaurants serving their specialty. Another aspect which makes this option attractive is that this business can be started with very less capital.

I want to assure you that no matter what course of action you choose to follow, you have my full support. You would have to be strong and work hard but I am sure that your efforts would be fruitful and a few years from now, you would be living a much better, more content and comfortable life than the one you have left behind.

Wishing you all the best for the future.

Dear [Recipients Name],

Hope you are good at your health and enjoying your vacation after hard studies. I am writing my recommendation about choosing your carrier i.e. medical or computer related field. I am not only your elder brother but I also had been your teacher for three years and I know your curricular background as well as your general attitude. Therefore, I will try my level best to guide you as per my knowledge and experience.

In my opinion, you are a genius in computer programming and troubleshooting of hardware related issues. This is also your hobby to spend your extra time with your computer. Moreover, you have an equal interest in computer languages and learning new applications.

By saying this, I do not mean to say that you are not good at biological studies but you are lean towards computer field. The scope of software engineering is also very high Therefore, I would recommend you to join software engineering instead of the medical field to flourish in future.

Looking forward to your own best decision.
