    to take a career

    Children are not entirely sure what career they want to take after graduation.

    Does "take a career" sound natural to you?
    Please, correct all my mistakes. I should know English perfectly and if you show me my mistakes I will achieve my dream a little bit faster. A lot of thanks.

    Not a teacher nor a native speaker.

    No. 'Take up' would work.

    Re: to take a career

    Or "pursue"
    I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.
