Karen’s Answer

You don't need to know exactly what field to go into at this point. Most people end up with several careers in their lifetime, so if the first one you choose isn't quite right, you have lots of options!

Good to talk to people you know (relatives, neighbors, family) who you believe are happy and successful. Question them about how they made choices. Think about what's important to you. Often values can drive career choices. If giving back is important, you might want to consider a career in nonprofit. Or you could work for a very profitable company and give back. Try to enjoy the process of deciding what you want to do FIRST.

If you haven't yet, I'd always recommend volunteering for a variety of causes. Even one-day events can give you perspective into working with lots of different people as well as learning about organizations while gaining valuable skills and experience that can go on your resume.

With every good wish!

M Octavian’s Answer

Hey there, Alisha! I'm thrilled to assist you with your query.

Firstly, it's crucial to identify the kind of work that aligns with your major.

Secondly, it's about finding the perfect intersection between your talents, interests, and the job you're aiming for. A lot of people choose their jobs based on their skills or passions that fit the job requirements. If you're still exploring your talents or interests, don't worry! You can always develop them while you're in college or during your leisure time.

Thirdly, and most importantly, don't let rejection dampen your spirit. If a company doesn't accept you, it could be because your resume didn't quite hit the mark, but don't let that discourage you. Remember, there's always another company out there that might just be the perfect fit for you.

In conclusion, these are my tips to help you navigate your career path during or after college, so you're not left wondering about which job to pick. That's all from me, and thank you!

Ryan’s Answer

John, You are so correct to say there are so many choices! Not only are there so many career choices today, but many more will emerge in the years ahead. The most important thing to consider is answering the question, What do you enjoy? The magic of success is enjoying what you do. What do you like doing in your spare time? What subjects do you enjoy studying the most? Are you willing to spend more time in school, or do you want to immediately enter the workforce after high school. What do you like to read? All these questions and many more you might think of will help answer your question. The key is to start with yourself then look at opportunities that fit your future happiness. Take time to consider you likes and dislikes, and how you like to spend your time; what are your interests? This will lead to clusters of careers that you might find enjoyable and the requirements to secure them. Start with you in mind!

Rebecca’s Answer

Thank you for your question. Firstly, you need to find out what careers you have interest.
Below are my suggestions:
1. Think about what you have interest, eg your hobbies, favourite subjects, etc and identify the related careers
Eg if you like music, would you like to be a musician, singer, musical artist, music composer, music producer, etc
If you have interest in maths, would you like to be an accountant, engineer, banker, financial analyst, maths teacher, etc
2. Find out more on these careers and determine what you have interest
3. Speak to someone who are working in these careers. Seek guidance from your mentor, school career counselor, your parents, etc
4. Shortlist 1-2 careers you would like to pursue
5. Explore the entry criteria of relevant subjects in colleges
Hope this helps! Good Luck!
May Almighty God bless you!
