What's the most efficient way to find the best career for me?

As an incoming College freshmen, I have still not chosen my intended major. It seems that everyone around me knows what they want to do, but I have no earthly idea as everything sounds interesting to me. I was wondering if there were any tips for me to find a career path that best suits me. #college #career-path #college-majors

Spend the first year or so trying different things, then settle on the one or two things you most enjoyed.

Hi Savannah - I can assure you that you are not alone in not knowing what career you want to pursue and I am sure that many of your peers feel the same way as well. To narrow down your interests, I would begin by reaching out to an academic advisor at the university you are planning to attend. These advisors should be able to suggest courses that will allow you to explore different majors while also making sure you will graduate on time. Another resource many colleges have is a career center. Find out if you school has one and set up a meeting to learn more about the opportunities available once you graduate for the different majors you are considering . Finally, I recommend finding organizations on campus related to the different areas you are interested in and attending some of the events/meetings at the beginning of the semester. Not only will this help you explore what you personally find interesting and worthy of pursuing, but it will give you exposure to upperclassmen so that you can learn about the different opportunities they have enjoyed and future plans they have for their careers.
