I'm talking about someone that you cared about, your child or a good friend etc...

Are there any? And why?

Did you mean "...would you advise someone not to enter into"?

Ok, yes what you said. Mine makes sense, but is ambiguous because I was maybe 'not advising' people.

Which might be a good idea for me to take on board.

Yeah that's what I wasn't clear about

 

I guess it depends how I viewed the person and the job - some I know might be well matched for a profession that wouldn't suit others.

Actually I would agree, but surely no-one ever chooses to take that on? I think that greateness is thrust upon them.

I absolutely agree. Having taught/lectured etc for the main part, I hold my head in my hands at this 'galloping' towards teaching from people who have been made redundant/want a change of career, and think that it's a 'calling'.

In some circumstances and given the person, I would recommend it and push them towards it. In others I would just hope they're never employed even in desperation and even more so, never ending up teaching my kids.

But the same would be levelled at me in other circumstances... There are some jobs I would be really crap at.

I wouldn't. It would be entirely up to them.

I'd be more concerned with the terms and conditions to be honest.

Can we still choose what we want to do? my experience of employment was coming up against people who seemed determined to place barriers in the way.

Media sales.

The England manager job. " Do I not advise that "

I would strongly advise them to steer clear of the following occupations, Ice cream salesman, deck chair attendant, lollipop man, or opera singer.

The legal profession.

A cold caller. I think a prostitute is a far more honourable job.

Spooky, I've always said if I was forced to choose between the two I'd rather be a prostitute.

Estate Agent.  You might get paid to sit around and do nothing, then give someone hell in the last few days because you are worried about your commission, but the money sucks and nobody likes you.

Motor trade, or to be specific accident repairs.  Absolute shit career choice, I wouldn't recommend it to my worst enemy.
