Many career options are exclusively designed for ADHD needs. They fulfill specific requirements and provide ample opportunities to explore stimulation, multitasking and opportunity to work independently. You should bear it in mind that not all jobs fulfill these three criteria. In such scenario, you must prioritize your choice and prefer one which suits you best. Before deciding on a particular option, you must introspect and find out your preferred category and see whether you would be able to perform it or not. This approach helps you make best career option for yourself.
Technical – You can choose a career in technical field as telephone engineer or electronics mechanic. These jobs require you to socialize yourself with the masses as and when you are told for repairing works or installation of equipments. This career develops sense of discipline in you in which you get opportunity to work independently.
Technological – Both technological and technical assignments look similar but they are different except having one similarity that you have freedom of multitasking in these two. Specification of technological jobs is to work in knowledgeable environment with in-depth idea of newly launched and state-of-the-art technologies which differentiates it from others. Most remarkable work of this area is working as an electronics expert, computer technician or computer builder.
Maintenance – Don’t think of your everyday maintenance guy that keeps your offices clean. There are jobs such as a carpenter, car mechanic, or an electrician. In these fields, you “maintain” a product so that the consumer can continue to use it. You are often quite autonomous.
Science – Most ADDers avoid research assignments. But still they can choose alternative job options in it like the specific categories of jobs including assisting the research oriented teams. Choosing medical field and working with the medical equipments too is a good idea. You can work in a company which specializes in keeping the EEG/MRI or ultrasound machines up-to-date.
Military – At first glance, you may be thinking that I’m crazy to include the Military as a field we ADDers could excel in, particularly when you consider how rigid and structured it is. But that is what makes it so beneficial. The military offers structure so that you aren’t necessarily “bouncing” around, and forces you to learn organizational skills. Once you make it through basic training, there are many jobs and careers in the military that you might enjoy: Paratrooper, Helicopter Pilot, Aircraft Technician, and more.
Entrepreneur – Choosing entrepreneurship as a profession needs strong will power and focused approach. Apply them and welcome success. You apply stimulation, control work performances and check output of your effort in entrepreneurship. As you think out of the box you get an opportunity to showcase creativity. Your work should be based on proper planning with enough paper work. If you are not good at this, you may face critical circumstances too.
Aviation – Pilot, air traffic controller or aviation engineering are main job options in aviation. If you don’t go for military, choose aviation as a career. This profession has lots of opportunities for stimulation and individual attempts. Job categories depend upon your choice.
Dentist- Before you shout, “Dentistry! Boring!”, hear me out. As a dentist, you often have a lot of variety in your work, and you certainly have tons of independence. For even more stimulation, you can specialize.
Transportation – You don’t have stimulating experience in transportation and need to follow the ordeals. Still you have freedom to roam. You have opportunity to reach to different locations as and when you are assigned for delivering products. In case you are offered a job of an ambulance driver you feel much stimulated due to extra pressure.
Engineer – Have keen look at young boys and girls operating heavy equipments professionally. These engineers perform duties after attaining special training. You can become a professional engineer with the specializations in chemical, nuclear, electronics etc. Almost every specific engineering area provides opportunity for you to do some multitasking in complete freedom. Engineering requires attention seeking individuals rather than entrepreneurs. You must fulfill your work in complete dedication and the output should be satisfactory. In entrepreneurship you can outsource some of your works which keep you in relief.
You can prefer any one of the suggested career options for better prospects.
