How do you choose which path to take after finishing your B.A.?

I'm currently in my senior year of a Bachelor's degree in Performing Arts (creative writing minor). I've always wanted to do lots of different jobs and I'm still not sure about what I want to do after graduating! I'm thinking of becoming a writer (screenwriter, poet, songwriter). Maybe I should pursue my studies with a Master's degree but to be honest, I'm getting bored of theoretical courses. I'm still young for my grade (19) and I find it stressful to make decisions that will affect my future. I'm afraid I'll regret them later.

How do I proceed when I have a lot of possible careers but not enough experience in any to work full-time?

I realized late into my college experience that I didn't want to work a math job at all so I finished out my Math degree and am now struggling to find a full-time job I feel qualified for. I have a list of 5 or so potential careers (Including but not limited to: Singer-Songwriter, Writer, Naturalist, Photographer, Artist), but I don't feel like I'm at the point where I could pursue any of them full-time. I'm wondering if I should just get a math job and explore the other options in my free-time, if I should just find any job related to my current interests, or if I should put off getting a full-time job until I get a little clearer in my objective. I'm alright on cash for now, I'd just prefer not to live with my parents for longer than I have to. I'm most likely overthinking this and you probably would need some more information to give a solid path forwards, but whatever. I'm here to listen. Thanks for all your help!

I am having several struggle about online job opportunities from outside of the world. I feel difficult when I choose my personal project relate to marketing. I want to deep down into the content marketing topic. But I don't know how to start it:(( I tend to use that project in order to put it into my portfolio.

I'm Hoang Anh.I am currently studying at a high school in Vietnam. A few months ago I got quite interested in marketing and started digging into it. After researching for a while, I am most interested in the content marketing topic. But after learning it, I don't know how to practice it anymore. It could be starting a personal project or a volunteer organization, for example. But these 2 are quite vague and it requires many things I don't have, such as CV. I want to start my career as a content marketing writer charity referral program

How can I start writing a book based on my life?

I am a Junior in college for my bachelors degree in creative writing and English. I always dreamt of writing my own book based off my life and maybe even turn it into a series of books as I grow older. As much as I can see myself in the near future publishing my first book, I do not know where to begin. This question was asked by a student who wanted to remain anonymous.

I am a freshman in college currently undecided on my career path. I have a wide number of interests so I’m in the process of exploring. My main interests are in interior design and writing. However, I do also loveee mysteries/crime solving. For right now, I just want want to learn how or if it’s possible to combine two of my interests(writing and mystery/crime or design and mystery/crime) together as a career. For instance, I’ve heard about investigative journalism but I am oblivious to anything else writing or design related in the field of criminal work.
