Lindsay’s Answer

Yes! Absolutely!
I had chosen careers previously that I truly thought I was going to pursue. Now, everything has changed for me. If you're constantly questioning career and debating if you even want to do it, I think it's worth looking into different fields. For me, I was pre-med/pre-PA for a LONG time. Throughout the process, I kept questioning the length of the programs, the value, and my happiness in them. This is what kind of helped me look into other fields and start looking into what they were like. Now that I've found a field I KNOW I want to work in, I haven't questioned it nearly as much. I definitely questioned the logistics like finances, job outlook, stability, etc but overall, my heart just kept going back to the same field. If you find something you want to do, despite the challenges and inquiries you have, you'll find a way to look past them.

Matthew’s Answer

It is common to question your career choice (or any other choice for that matter) and very few people find themselves happy 100% of the time. While that may sound negative or pessimistic, I assure you that it is not. One of the many benefits of gaining experience through school, interactions, and at work is that your perspective on the world around you continuously evolves. For example, if you think back 5 years ago and consider what you thought to be important and compare it to what you think is important now, most likely things have changed, and within 5 more years your outlook on what is important may once again be quite different.

Embracing the world with an open mind can allow you accept these changes as they come and lead you to what you value and what brings you happiness.
