1. What do you love to do that makes you lose track of time. That’s your passion.
2. What talents and greatest interests do you feel you have that light up your soul that involve service of others/community/humanity? Find the service in what you do and you’ll always have purpose.
3. What kind of lifestyle do you see that interests you? And does you major have potential to guide you there/offer that kind of life? Example: travel, income potential of a field, where you’d like to live, family, etc..
4. Always know just the discipline of getting a degree already sets you many steps ahead in life, and shows you what you can do when apply yourself. And shows resilience, which is key in life and career. So whatever you choose is just your education/expertise base. Doesn’t mean you are locked in that vocation field for life.
5. Being at a young age it’s hard to try and decide your vocation path sometimes. But do what you love that serves best. Life is too fast and fragile to be unhappy.

Good luck and best to you in all your endeavors!

Rebecca’s Answer

I may not be a zoologist, but I can certainly empathize with your situation.
1. Start by identifying your preferred area of work. Are you drawn to the Front of the House roles, such as customer service? Or do you feel more at home in the Back of the House, working directly with the animals?
2. Once you've decided between Front or Back of the House, delve deeper into the specific roles within those areas.
3. Now, it's time to investigate your top three choices in detail.
4. Remember this golden nugget of wisdom I received while at Massage School: "You have the power to shape this into either a job or a career." So, consider whether your top three choices align more with a job or a career.
5. Have faith in yourself and your ability to excel in the field of zoology!
Wishing you all the best and good luck on your journey!

Hi! Choosing a major in college is a big decision, but it's also an exciting one that allows you to explore your interests and passions. To start your career journey and pick the right major, begin by reflecting on your interests and what you truly enjoy. Think about the subjects in high school that you found most fascinating. If you're passionate about animals and nature, like zoology, that's a great starting point.

Next, consider your long-term career goals. In your case, since you're interested in zoology, explore the different branches within zoology, such as marine biology, wildlife conservation, or animal behavior. Read about each branch, talk to professionals in the field, and even consider internships or volunteer work related to zoology to get some hands-on experience. This will help you understand which area aligns best with your interests and aspirations. It's totally okay if you don't have it all figured out right away; many students change their majors during college as they learn more and discover their true passions. Keep an open mind, explore your options, and don't be afraid to make adjustments along the way. Your college years are a time of exploration and growth, and choosing a major is just one step on your exciting journey. Wishing you all the best :)
