Career choices mainly depends on your aptitude, your specialization, you educational background and more than anything else what you really wish to do..I mean what you enjoy doing? The financial status of a parent should never be the determining factor in the choice of one's career.
An individual's aptitude and interest determines the career most. Other considerations like parental choice, financial considerations result in mismatch of individuals to job with resultant dismal performance and frustration.
I feel that career decision is based on financial status of parents, personal interests and the boom of that field at present. Though all three do not work often in making a decision one can take the career on the basis of his/her interest and ability to do it.
Factors that help to decide one's career.
correct choice of profession,based on aptitude.
seek help from those established in the field and having positive outlook.
funds may b available or loan taken.
motivate yourself, and keep your goal in mind always.
take your career decision well thought.
