You seem to be on the fast track toward a college degree. Therefore it's natural that you are having anxieties. Typically students use their first two years in college to try out subjects in different fields before deciding on their majors. My stepson spent four years getting a degree in art before deciding to go into architecture which took him another four years. I do not recommend this.
I experimented a lot as an undergraduate, finally graduating with a group major in social sciences and a second major in sociology. This didn't qualify me for much except graduate school or a job in insurance or social work. So I did social work for a decade while sampling more subjects such as advertising and various photography workshops. I further learned photography from books, going to art museums, and practicing it on my own. I also volunteered to do the photography for a couple of organizations.
While earning a living on the social work job that provided good vacation leave, I took up travel writing and photography submitting on spec to magazines. This led to part-time freelance opportunities of assignments for magazines, which led to quitting the social work job to do my "dream job" as a freelance photographer exploring the world and being published in magazines, books, and corporate publications. What I learned from this process was to take advantage of opportunities as they arose and to create my own opportunities.
To cut a very long, complicated story short, you may not learn what your dream job is until you have it. Then all you have to do is be resourceful enough to hang onto it since industries, such as photography, change quickly due to evolving technology.
Dennis recommends the following next steps:
- Be open to new ideas and subjects. Let your intuition lead you toward occupations that interest you. Be open to opportunities that as they arise. And perhaps, slow down and worry less about what you'll be doing for a career. It might turn out to be something, a dream job, you never considered until you're in it.
