How does one pick a career on their own?

I asked my family. Isn't the idea that 

job-stability comes first, then salary 

and then job-satisfaction comes last? 

Your thoughts?

    Forget "job-stability" because you have no control over your employer's financial stability.  The unhappy truth is you can be fired or laid-off at any time, for any reason, or for no reason at all.  What really matters is whether you are qualified and competent enough to enjoy your work.  Grinding your life away while failing miserably at a job you detest is literally hell on Earth.

    Some will follow their passions and try to turn those into an income. Others will dispense with job satisfaction and go for the things you prioritize. It all depends on what one wants from life.

    Pick something you like, that is stable & pays well or has opportunity for promotions. Those jobs are out there.

    All 3 are important, but your ranking makes sense.

    No.  What comes first is whether you'd be any good at a particular job and if you'd really enjoy it.  When you spend maybe eight hours a day, five or six days a week doing something, it's vital that you be good at it and that you are happy doing it.

    Then narrow it down a bit.  Does it have a good pension scheme?  Is the pay good?  Are the hours reasonable?  Is there opportunity for advancement?  Are the people you'd be working with nice, helpful and friendly?  Is it close to where you live or would you have to commute a long distance, as that can be very expensive.

    There's a lot to think about!

    Job stability is a concern, salary is a concern and job satisfaction is also a concern.  Your skill or ability in a certain field should also be a concern.  You might have other concerns as well.  Instead of ranking all of your concerns in importance first through last, what you should look for is the occupation that results in the best blend of all your concerns.

    A good idea might be to take a personality profile test first to determine your basic personality and the kind of work it is most suited for.
