When and how do you decide what you would like to do for the rest of your life, especially when it comes to picking your major?

It is extremely stressful to try and determine what specific thing a person can do for the rest of their life that will make them happy. I do not want to choose the wrong job or major and find out that I actually am no longer interested in that subject anymore. I am worried that I will go through school thinking I am interested in something and once I obtain an actual occupation that adheres to that major or subject, I will no longer love what I am doing. How do I know what will make me happy but will also be enough to take care of a family with?

How do you ask an institution or professional for shadowing opportunities?

I am currently a college psychology student. There is a particular clinical institution that I would be interested in doing some shadowing at. My problem is that I'm not sure how to ask if shadowing opportunities are available when I have no prior relationship with the institution. My target institution does not list contact information for specific staff members. The only way I can contact them is by showing up at their location (which I am able to do), or by phone, which are typically for referrals (this institution mostly provides counseling services.) The reason I wish to shadow is to build a relationship with the institution to allow for a possible future internship. I also would like to experience what some of these professionals do on a day-to-day basis because I might end up liking this area of my major. How do I present myself as a desirable shadowing candidate when I'm going in cold? And how exactly do I ask for this type of opportunity? Thanks! #psychology #clinical-psychology #therapy #job-shadowing #networking #professional-development #career-planning #career-exploration #communication-skills

I was wondering if college allows you to explore classes within your degree field or is it just required classes you need to take. #college #career-choice #classes #requirements #career-exploration

What are some good places to find inspiration?

I am 19 and have been out of high school for a year. At first I just wanted to work for a while and get my savings account up. Now that some time has passed I find myself under pressure to make some more serious strides towards my future but I don't really seem to have much to work for. Money, freedom, peace, knowledge, accomplishment... It all sounds nice but the only goal I can make with certainty is that I don't want to fail. So where would be some good places to find something to work toward. #career-path #motivation #career-exploration #priorities
