If you had the opportunity to redo your career path, what would you change and why?
I’m a senior student at Brennan HS. I’m looking into engineering careers because I excel at math and science but have a creative streak that needs an outlet. #engineering #science #math #career #careerpath #engineer
Going by the interest shared and strength, you can pursue your career either in engineering or BBA and MBA.
If your inclination is towards technical aspect, then yes , engineering could be a stepping stone for your career but if you are more interested regards to how business is run, then i would suggest for BBA and then MBA as both of the career paths do use a great use of numbers.
I wouldn't change anything. You need to enjoy your own process, there are always going to be wins and losses but it's up to you to make the best out of it.
Don´t compare your path with others path and focus on yourself. That will give you the best possible outcome for your personal and professional growth.

After I graduated from engineering school, the basic choice I had when interviewing for a job was did I want to work in a central (headquarters) office or in a "field" location where I would interface directly with customers. I chose a field location and I have been happy with that choice. But, if one wants to advance rapidly in a company, I would advise choosing a central or headquarters position. So I might have selected an office position, but who knows how that might have turned out.
Hope this helps,
