After graduation, I worked in a Microbiology research lab for a few years. I realized this was not the path I wanted. So I went on to earn a masters Degree in Civil Engineering. I spent the next 35 years in the very rewarding and interesting Field of Water Resources.
The point is that you do not need to sweat right now over exactly what Field you choose for a career. Take a wide variety of courses early in your college career. Find out what interests you. I am living proof that even after college, you can still change course to find that special field of endeavor that you find interesting and fulfilling.

1. Take career and/or personality tests to know yourself better.
The tests could provide you an insight of what you might be actually interested in and what you would prefer to work on in the long term.
2. Talk to professionals about their daily work life.
What makes them keep on going everyday? What achievement they are most proud of? Imagine yourself living that work life. Do you like it?
Hope this helps!
