To choose a business career do some networking and talk to people who work at companies that you find interesting. You'll find people are happy to talk about what they do and what work is like at their company. Try to land an internship or co-op to get some practical experience and learn what various jobs are really like.

Hi, the best way to find out it is by doing internships or shadowing people that doing the job you are interested in. Many companies offer internships where you can rotate every week to different departments and see what is the best fit for you.

Hi! I'd suggest you do a bit of research into the business field and identify your interests within it - is it decision making, or the financial aspect of business? is it entrepreneurship? Is it strategy planning or people management? is the forecasting or prediction of business stock intresting to you?

Which part of business is most attractive for you - this is a question you would have to answer for yourself to narrow down your career interests.

In line with that, as others have suggested, a rotational internship or co-op can definitely better your chances to understand the practicality of this field.

Malavika recommends the following next steps:

Try to create a flowchart of all the fields (Finance, HR, etc.) you think would fall under business and identify which is attracting you most.
Research the field(s) you are attracted to.
Look for internships or co-ops that are relevant to that field(s).

Kevin’s Answer

What is it about the business field that interests you? If it is the management of people, then a career in Operations Management or Human Resources would be worth exploring. If it is the management of money, then consider Finance or Accounting. If engaging with customers, then Sales or Marketing. Try to focus on what it is that you believe will make you want to go to work each day, regardless of the paycheck and start there.
