It's a pretty serious and competitive school, where people hustle hard, work hard, and are driven by a purpose: to set themselves up for a great career. Business feels like the center of the world at Stern. Finance ruled supreme in the school, and the students in the best position for...

TL;DR: No, you don't need to worry about this at all and should forge ahead with your interest despite this concern you have. You don't need to be a math or science person (at least not in the way you're defining it in your question), for two reasons:"STEM" may sound like a small set of topics...

Topline: It's possible but exceptionally rare to major in three unrelated fields without experiencing a huge reduction in your GPA, lower non-academic accomplishments such as extracurriculars or work experience, or a significant delay in when you can graduate. Two unrelated fields is hard...

Yes, it is normal. I have anxiety about the future all the time. Most of my friends face some form of acute stress on a very frequent basis, much of it rooted in anxiety about what the future holds. I used to have terrible anxiety as a teenager as well. I remember really worrying that I was...

TL;DR: I got the idea from combining my experience on StackOverflow.com with my experience organizing an event for The Opportunity Network. Longer story: I founded CareerVillage.org with my wife in 2011 as a side project in my living room. The idea for it came to me during a conversation we...

Hi Christie. Do you think you could edit your question to include a little bit more about some of the things you're interested in, or what you may have tried so far to explore? I think it would help us know how to best...

Hi Shane! When you ask about the hardest part, do you mean the hardest part of day-to-day life of being a chef (when you're already a chef), or the hardest part of *becoming* a chef (like on the path to becoming...

**TL;DR** There's no clear "right" and "wrong" major for this occupation. All else equal, I'd suggest majoring in business (if available) or nonprofit management (if available although this will be very rare). But the optimal strategy is probably to picking a major that either helps you become...

Hi Bindi. This is a very interesting question, but it's not clear to me how it relates to your aspirations for your personal future. I can imagine a few ways you might be able to tie it into your plans for your future. Can you edit your question to tie it in a little more closely to your career...

Hi Brittany. That's a LOT of questions! I think you might get better results if you split the questions up so each one gets one page. Otherwise I worry that qualified volunteers might be a little intimidated by the large volume of...

Headline: I would keep my job, but if you asked me 6 years ago I would have told you that I would have switched jobs. Why I would keep my job if I won the lottery right now Because I am currently working on something I am passionate about and enjoy working on. Because my job allows me to have...

To become a time management super hero, you will need a calendar, a to do list, and a process you follow every day. That fact that you are asking this question is extremely good (and for everyone else reading this question, you're on the right track too!). Time management is arguably the most...

If you are feeling confident and want to achieve something ambitious, I recommend learning how to build a DCF (Discounted Cash Flow) valuation model for a publicly traded company, and then use that model to evaluate the current share price. Is it too high? Too low? Reasonable, but only if...
