Should the idea of "do what you love" change in relevance to career searching change depending on your experience?

The notion of "do what you love" is a common idea behind a lot of answers, but I was wondering what should be the extent of this advice as relevant when you are first entering the job market verses when you are more experienced? #career-path #job-market...

Is it better to have your resume demonstrate a variety of skills or great skill in the specific career you are pursuing?

I'm not entirely sure what career I want to end up in, but I have interests in working in theater(preferably backstage). So I was wondering if it helps to gear your resume towards the specific career you are working towards at that moment, or demonstrate a variety of skills you have accumulated...

If you don't know the language well, is studying abroad still a good idea?

I'm taking a beginners course in German, but do not really plan on studying it in college. I am interested in possibly studying abroad there as the culture interests me, so I was wondering if no knowing the language well/only knowing the very basics would be a reason to look into studying...

Does it help to start off in a career that pays well, rather than searching for your dream job?

I know college results in debt, so I was wondering: in the long run would it be worth it to find a job in a subject you like(but aren't overly fond of) and use that to become more financially stable, then find a career you are very passionate about? #finance #debt...

Do possible employers look at all the schools you've attended?

How far back do employees look into your education? Is it more important to attend a bigger name graduate school to make up for a lesser known undergraduate or attend a more well established undergraduate school for it's reputation in a field? #employment-opportunities...

Would getting an internship in a career you don't entirely plan on following beneficial in the long run?

Work experience is very important in getting a job, but when you have very little work experience in the field you want to pursue, would internships in other fields be helpful in different fields? How separate should the difference be between the fields to be considered applicable #internship...

What are personal interactions within the workplace like within the psychology field?

Because psychology is a very private interaction with patients, how exclusive are the interactions within the workplace?...

How difficult is it to change careers?

I'm a senior in high school and upon entering college I am becoming more and more worried about my future. I don't really know what I want to study in or make into a career path, so I was wondering how locked in are you once you declare a major and begin your career path? #science #majors...

How strongly should the financial aspect of a career impact what I decide to study?

I have a love of theater, specifically being backstage rather than acting, but I know it is a very shaky business both in terms of job availability and financial stability. My plan for college would be to either double major in theater and a more established major, probably a physical science,...

What majors are available for people who want a career backstage rather than on one?

I'm a senior in high school and am trying to decide what to major in in college. I enjoy working backstage at theatrical performances, but I don't want to major in theater. I know there are careers in costume design, set design, stage manager, etc... but I don't know what majors could help me...

Are there any careers that could combine a psychology major and a love of theater?

I am a senior in high school and have always had a fondness for theater, specifically the behind the scenes work rather than actually performing. Recently I have been thinking about possible majors and career paths certain majors could open up for me and, although I love theater, I don't think...
