Diana’s Answer

I was in my early 20's when I had the opportunity to build a mentor relationship with a professional and I was so surprised to learn that this person graduated with a zoology degree in pursuit of working in a zoo. Instead, life happened and he was now a director at a prominent oil and gas company.

The truth is, as Michael said, you really don't know what you want to do for the rest of your life at any point in time. Opportunities change and you adapt. You and your interests will change over time and you'll also identify what you are and aren't good at. You'll meet new friends in college and have the chance to join professional organizations which will also mold your goals.

Shannon’s Answer

Trying to decide what you want to do for a career can be difficult! I think the best place to start when it comes to figuring out what you want to do for the rest of your life is to find something that makes you happy. Find hobbies and turn them into profit, do something that makes a difference for others, do what makes you happy!!! Also don't be afraid to jump around, no one said you have to do one thing forever. You can change jobs every five years if that works for you, having a traditional career isn't for everyone.

It's also important to remember that just because people around you are asking 'what you want to do' or 'what do you want to be when you grow up' doesn't mean that you need to have an answer!

Mark’s Answer

Keep in mind that you don't have to do ONE thing for the rest of your life. Some people do that. But other people do 3 things . . . or 5 . . . or 8. One thing leads to another. Jeff Bezos started out selling used books online. And now he's sending people into space. So right now, you only have to figure out number one.
