I am still undecisive of what major to enroll in. I have been thinking about it everyday but I just get more indecisive. I went to my college advisor but all they told me was to go on a website that will help me choose a career but I don't believe that actually helped any, so I'm stuck. Can anybody please help me out?
Have an Answer?
My teacher once asked to look at the top 2 tiers - doctor or lawyer.
Unfortunately, health lawyers exist so you could eventually fall into both categories.
Are you able to choose undecided as a major? and eventually choose one when you have to? Whichever you decide, you can still do whatever you want. You can still be an engineer or a scientist, because all you have to do is fulfill the required classes to apply to those graduate programs. What do you think you are great at doing? are you happy when you do them? example: I am great at numbers, I would be happy to be an accountant. I am great at numbers, but I don't because I've experienced ... ... so all in all, you can choose one, and find yourself being led another way in time. You have to take every opportunity to find experience and let yourself be exposed to understand if you might like that career or not. I just chose Biology because I understood it the most while in school and eventually joining clubs and organizations, I learned that I most liked pharmacy. I decided to volunteer at one, it wasn't what I thought it'd be, but I did more research and learned that it was exactly where I wanted to be. College advisors can't really tell you what you want to do. Unfortunately, you can't have people telling you what you want to do though they can try to think how you are and what you might fit into. Ask your friends as well, what qualities they think you may be great at and what they think you are most happy doing. Self-reflection is hard, but what do you think would make you happy AND self-sustaining.
No one can tell you what to be and you actually be 100% happy with the response or outcome. I can suggest that you might consider travelling to hep discover your passions. Independent journeys can answer a lot of questions for a person.
So what did the website tell you? Did you complete the activity? There are many activities on the web and without discussing it with others (family and friends), it might be a random thought and then leave your head until you think of it again. You need to more focused onwhat you do and don't like when it comes to jobs. Check out the CaCareerCafe.com and CaCareerZone.edu for more career ideas and explain what your are leaning towards but they must meet these two things; a local college or be willing to move to attend school and after getting that career, does that meet your values (like how many hours away from family). If you want to stay in your local area, then you are limited to what you live near or go into self employment. Good luck, I hope that helps,.
