I would recommend thinking about what you enjoy. What do you enjoy doing in your spare time or as a hobby? There are a wide variety of careers out there, and you can choose a career based on something you already love. People spend a lot of time at work, and if you can choose something you enjoy it makes your career more fulfilling.

Great question! If you haven't already, I suggest contacting your college's career center and meeting with them early in the school year. Also, tests like Myers Briggs or 16 Personalities are helpful (and fun) starting points to find out who you are, why you do things the way you do, and explore what jobs might be a natural fit for you. But the most helpful thing I've found is talking to people! Talk to older students and ask them how they chose their major, what's tough and what's rewarding about it, and what do they play to do after graduating? Think of it as a fact-finding mission! It doesn't take very long, and it may help you down the road with making connections and expanding your network. Just remember to be appreciative and respectful of their time. For me, I was undecided when I entered college, but knew from my high school experience and from taking tests like Myers Briggs that I liked math, music, and working with people. I kept an open mind, went to as many informational sessions as I could, and spoke with upperclassmen who seemed to have it all figured out. I decided on Management Science and Engineering because it sharpened my quantitative skills which I could use no matter where I went - in business, public policy or entrepreneurship - and it developed my skills in collaboration, teamwork and negotiation. I found a way to keep up my interests in music by joining singing and dance groups. Whatever you decide, know that there's a way to keep doing what you love!

Try an Interdisciplinary, Liberal Studies, or General Studies major, that will let you combine multiple interests. Or an Individually Designed major that you can even name yourself.

A tricky question to answer where the answers lies within you.. It really hard to judge or point something as correct or wrong as perception always differs from person to person. Beyond all, you shall take N number of suggestions but ensure you make the only decision by urself, wholeheartedly..

Graduation, degree, certifications are just like passport, a simple identity but the really key to success lies within his/her Skill set which is you VISA, the power to fly anywhere you wish. So i would suggest, try finding your inner strengths, talents, interest, passion or something that your really good at and something which seems truly easy and fascinating you all times without a reason. Once you identify your passion start shaping it with appropriate degree or certification or learn the required skill set to showcase it in a pleasant manner which eventually takes you to limelight & success.


Wishing you all success for your future..
