It's hard! But I can say, to get started ask yourself 3 P's:
- Passion: what do you like
- Proficiency: what are you good at or could learn to be good at. In other words, you know what you like to learn and what you are good at.
- Pay: what is the value of this skill? How much could you get paid and what is the career path
So, for example, you may really like art and are really good at it. What careers would you pick where you can bring your art skills into the workforce.
When you don't find a match, you can think about doing certain things as a hobby vs. a career. In the end you will spend a lot of time in a job, and you should always ask yourself frequently if you like what you are doing.
Also, choosing a degree program does not equal a career. Keep that in mind as you choose your area of study.
