How do I decide between two very different career paths?

I've always had my mind set on business. My senior year, I ended up taking a psychology class and loved it. I found it fascinating how the brain works and every other aspect of the class. I don't want to make the wrong decision when I have to decide what classes I have to take. #psychology #business #neuroscience

Hellos,

First thing I want to tell you is when we are confused in taking some decision it will make us more confuse when we ask from others.

What will be happen the maximum? Believe me, in my life I have taken once the path of fascination and that was the best teacher which opens my other side or which brings me more closer to myself.

Don't think more, just decide and put your believe like no one can change your mind and with your dedication and discipline achieve your happiness.


Best of luck.

I agree with Linda Ann and her post above: you should consult with your counselor and. Try and set up an internship. I understand how fascinating psychology is when you learn about it, but seeing the application of it in real life may give you a better understanding of what your future career may look like.

Also allow yourself to be wrong, to make mistakes, and to want to change your mind: I have worked in sales, business, public relationship.. have a degree in art and languages... and at over 40 I finally found my path and I am now a nurse. It is okay to have various interests and it is okay to explore them.

Do think. Do try. Do ask questions!

Finally, maybe combine your love of psychology with business: there is a whole lot of possibilities in front of you if you look at organizational or industrial business.

Good luck!

Linda Ann’s Answer

Since you are not yet enrolled in college, I would recommend going to the Guidance Counselor's office at your high school. Ask to take a vocational interest survey. It might help you to decide...Another option is to dual-major in psychology and business. They make a good marriage, so to speak. There is one specialty in psychology that is dedicated to applying psychological principles to the world of work. That specialty is called Industrial-Organizational Psychology.


You are young, you still have time to sample various coursework and then decide. Try to get an internship during the summer to see if one or the other of these two areas are a better "fit" for you.


GOOD LUCK!
