Director of Proposals at Dell
I would recommend that your find a career that aligns with your passions and goals in life. Your career will span over 40+ years and it will be very important to select one that you love versus one that makes allot of money. Money cannot buy happiness. If you select a career that you love, you will be more likely to perform well in the role and advance throughout your life. Now I would say that you need to take a somewhat balanced approached to selecting a career and make sure that whatever you pick will make enough money to support you long term personal goals. I have also provided this advice to my daughter who is currently pursuing a math education career as she struggled with the same question. In the end, go towards your passion and success & satisfaction will follow!
