Tina Q.’s Answer


To be honest, it is difficult at times. Your current path could take you to a career option that you’ll stay in for less than a year. But that career helped you gain the skills and experience to keep going. I don’t think we ever just settle. As long as we are open to learning, growing, improving, whatever career choice we make can be something that takes us to the next level. My biggest suggestion is to remain true to yourself. Be your authentic self and learn what’s a passion and what’s not a passion for you.

Maria’s Answer

When it comes to figuring out what to be/what to do professionally, I'd recommend getting out there in the field to get a "quick snapshot" of what a day in the life of a particular career looks like. This can be done in several ways: an internship (typically several days to several months) with a professional in that field and sometimes paid or unpaid for the time and work you're putting in; a micro-internship (typically several hours to several days) working on a particular project in the industry you're interested in; volunteering (free service that you're giving with time & learning from a professional on how to accomplish a task/project; typically several hours to several months depends on your schedule); job shadowing (typically one day or however frequently the professional is available) of "real-world" insight into the day to day operations of that professional; watching free videos online of professionals at work (technology closes the gap with accessibility especially in terms of geography i.e. seeing how professionals work abroad, in another state under different weather conditions, etc...). Get out there and experience a taste of the professional possibilities!
