What is the best way to decide which career would be best for me?
I’m in my sophomore year now and I can’t decide what job I want to have when I’m older. I’ve done some research and would like to be either a lawyer or an engineer but I can’t decide which one. What would be a good way to go about deciding which career to pursue?
I once thought that I wanted to be a lawyer when I was younger and then my mind changed my senior year because I discovered what all work and school included that I'd have to do and I found out that it wasn't honestly my passion. I'm now at the end of my junior year and majoring in Sports Management with a minor in Kinesiology. I decided what I wanted to officially do for my future in my senior year of high school, I chose sports because it's something that I love to do and it doesn't bore me. Base it off your hobbies.
