I love school but I've learned that I hate being in the workforce. How can I be sure to get a job I will enjoy after I graduate?

I can't stay in school forever. I graduate with my MFA (yes, I'm going for specialization), but I'm worried that after I'm specialized, I still won't be able to find a job I enjoy. #workforce #career #career-advising #finding-a-major...

Is it wise to pursue a career that is more likely to make you happy than make you a lot of money?

I've always been interested in the sciences, and up until recently I was almost 100% sure I was going to go into microbiology and get a job with the US Navy medical division. That still sounds really interesting and cool, but I don't know if I want to spend the rest of my life staring at...

I'm majoring in Molecular Biology, and I'm planning on graduating in three years, not necessarily for prestige (though that would be cool!) but mainly because of costs. Using my AP courses, I would likely take 18 semester credit hours a year to complete the required courses on time for med...

I know people always say to do a job that you love, but wouldn't it be wise to take the job that makes more money so that you can do what you love on the side? When considering what to choose for my major, I keep struggling with what I want to do, and what would help me more financially....

Is it better to pursue a career that will bring you happiness or one to bring you money?

Some people believe it is better to pursue a job that'll bring you happiness but maybe not enough money to keep you comfortable. On the other hand you could argue that you'd be happier in a job you don't necessarily enjoy but brings in a ton of money. What's your opinion? #career-choice...
