How do you cope with regret?

There is an endless variety of jobs available, from software engineer, to anesthesiologist, to landscape architect. Most people are not simply skilled in one area, but in multiple arenas of study. There are many times I have overheard conversations of jobholders wishing they had entered this profession instead of that, while they still had the chance. With a large possibility for regret concerning an occupation, how do you handle this should it arise? #emotional-intelligence #decision-analysis #reflection #career-counseling

What are the most important things to think about when choosing your major?

I hear about people all the time who get a degree in something completely different from the job they have. Is having a major for the profession you want really important? It it better to get a specialised degree, or something more general? How are we even supposed to decide on a degree? There are so many to choose from! Do we need to think about the job we want to have, or what we enjoy, or what we think will give us the most options? #college-major #career-choice #career-path #decision-analysis
