    How do you know?

    Hello guppies,
    OK, this is not one of those twisted/tangy topics...ummm....sorryhttp://www3.pak.org/gupshup/smilies/biggrin.gif

    Well, I've been talking to my friends about career options etc. Some of them are at Uni and are studying what they've always wanted to. However, two of them are in their final year and still aren't sure about their choice http://www3.pak.org/gupshup/smilies/confused.gif Obviously that's quite frustrating...http://www3.pak.org/gupshup/smilies/frusty.gif

    I want to know how many of you are fiercely career-minded. Also, when/how did you make up your mind about your career? Did you go through many stages? Any/all responses will be appreciated---I am just keen to find how people make such important decisions.

    So fish, if you're starting college and are confused about the direction of your life, I would wouldn't worry too much about it. Don't declare a major unless you are absolutely certain but take a few career tests that will pin point what your interests are. After you figure out what you want to do, get exposure to that field, do internships, volunteer, keep up with the industry news, talk to people in that field. Take an active role, don't just let life take you somewhere and listen to your heart not what everyone else tells you to do.

    Hope this helps! http://www3.pak.org/gupshup/smilies/smile.gif

      Hmmm, I can see that some of the previous postsfrom this thread have disappeared http://www3.pak.org/gupshup/smilies/eek.gif Thanks to Master Magician!

      Yasmine2, your posts are always insightful and interesting http://www3.pak.org/gupshup/smilies/ok.gif Thanks for another one! I've actually graduated recently and have a fairly good idea aout what I'd like to do. The reason why I brought up this issue was some of my friends and my own brother seem to be struggling with their choice.

      Your following opinion makes a lot of sense to me.
