Hector’s Answer

Deciding your career is big decision that will impact your life, so my advise is think first what you like to do, the type of job you enjoy and then from that point decide what to study as your career. I wanted to be a computer programmer, even when a network tech may make more money, or a doctor or lawyer, but I wanted computer programming, so I went to College, graduated and worked for a while as a Programmer. Time went buy and the technology changed, ne programming showed up, I did not have a chance to get into it, so I made a lateral move that I do nor regret, because I became a Data Analyst, and by the way I made more than as a Programmer, with less pressure and less problems.
So resuming, study something you like and enjoy doing, and also learn anything life presents you with, you never know when you will need that extra piece of knowledge

It can be stressful! It's important to manage your time and be sure that you set you properties and strive to achieve your goals. It's important to have a mentor. It's important to have an advocate. It's important to always be learning.

I manage stress by stepping back and laughing at the craziness of it all.

I don't regret my career choice at all. I love people and I love my job.
