These are all perfectly normal, very common questions for students to ask themselves. The career choosing process is daunting and stressful and nobody actually wants to do it.

Ultimately, mistakes will be made. There’s very little possibility that you make the absolute right choice on the first try.

A simple strategy that I’ve employed to help me is this: make a list.


List making helps organize ideas and thoughts and lets you put them all into an easy to read format.

Start your list off the subjects that interest you most, as many or as little as you want. Research majors you can pursue relating to each of the subjects, and then jobs you can do with those majors.

It might take a little time but at the end of it you’ll have a list of possible career options. It might not give you exactly what you’re looking for but at least you’ll have some sort of starting point. When you’re ready, browse¬†¬†for a little bit more insight into what it’s like to work as a professional.

Mistakes happen, but they do not define you. It’s never too late to change your mind and it’s okay if you’re unsure about what you’d like to do.
