jennifer’s Answer

I love animals. I like them more than people sometimes. So you said you like animals and nature. Park Ranger might be something to look into. Find a park near you and call. I know calling might seem weird, but if you work for a park chances are you are a pretty nice person. I would suggest to call and ask if there is anyone there, park ranger, employee, etc that you can set up a date to meet. Tell them you are thinking about going into he field or something similar and want to gain more insight. I can almost guarantee you they will set an hour or two aside for you. If not, they stink and call another place. You can also look into town shelters for volunteering. Anything that you see and say ," hey! that looks interesting" call them. Worst case they say no. Best case they say yes. You never know what will happen if you just take the chance. Go get them tiger!

Daniel’s Answer

Hey, I recommend you consider joining the military. There are so many opportunities for you here, It is one of the most honorable things you can do and it comes with a lot of benefits. They will train you in what field you want to go in and it can be valuable in the civilian world. You can go to college afterwards and it will be paid for. You can stay in and you will see so many interesting places and make some of the best friends you could think of. Some of my friends are into real-estate so they do that on the side others do stocks others stream video games. The opportunities are endless.

Simeon’s Answer

In general, I would go to the department of labor's website (https://www.dol.gov/) and see which fields are growing quickly these days. If you're drawing a blank on what you'd like to do, see if any of the fast growing fields call out to you. This will give you a lot more structure than trying to get a vague sense of your passions and trying to brainstorm a way to turn it into money. Most people don't have a passion that they are aware of right away. Also, passions tend to change from season to season. Lastly, look at videos on YouTube of people in their careers talking about what they love and hate. See if any of their descriptions sound like a good fit for you. It's just as important to figure out if you can deal with the downsides of a job as it is to figure out what you'd love about a job.

As far as animals and nature go, maybe being a park ranger or a veterinarian would be a good fit? There is also a whole camping/summer camp industry you could explore if you want to be out in nature for your job.

Fernando’s Answer

Go of what you like. If your interest is animals and nature, you could study, for example, to be a veterinarian or a botanist. If you want to go straight into the work field jobs like: park ranger, working at an animal day care or even small entry level jobs at zoos are available. There's a wide variety of career paths available, take your time to research and study the ones that draw your attention. The important thing here is to stick to what you love, while also being well informed as to what the career paths offer and require.

Rebecca’s Answer

Hi, there are plenty of subjects / career animals related, e.g. Veterinary, Zoology, Biology, etc. You can explore more online on different careers and understand the daily life. You may shortlist a few that you are interested in.
Then, you can also look for someone who really working in that career or explore any internship in that career. That can help you to really understand how it works. You can choose the relevant subjects in your undergraduate courses.
Hope it helps! Good Luck!

Caroline’s Answer

I would recommend seeing if you could find an internship or if you could volunteer at a place like an animal shelter to learn more about what a job with animals entails. Internships and volunteer opportunities are a great way to try out a field before committing to majoring in it in college. It is also a good idea to ask questions of different people among a range of fields to see what you may like and to learn more about different job opportunities.

shannon’s Answer

Consider asking yourself:

What do I want from my career?
What are my core values?
What activities do I most enjoy, professionally or in my free time?
What are my interests?
What are my strengths and aptitudes? Soft skills? Hard skills?
Do I want to specialize in certain technical skills or take on management roles?
Once you answer questions like these—and any others that are important to you—you can better research potential careers paths. It’s also important to revisit your career goals as you grow personally and professionally to ensure your goals remain achievable and aligned with your interests.
