  8. Save a certain portion of your pay every week without fail. Save, save, save. Start with 10% and work up if you can. Don't end up old and broke.

  9. Start saving early. And don't get romantically involved with people you work with.

  13. Lots of good advice there. I used to be a careers adviser and discovered that young people differ in what motivates them & what they want out of a career. Some look for jobs with lots of money others want to do work that helps people etc. My advice was that they should get the best qualifications they could as it's harder to get them later but to remember it's never too late.
    Also if they don't like what they are doing, then change their job. It's easier to do a job you like than one you don't and they have a lot of years ahead of them in their working life.
    What I also discovered is that most listen to their parents rather than professional advisers. After all what do they know about the world of work!
