There are many careers to choose in which you are capable of helping people! Think about who you would like to help, how, and in which setting. For instance, if you love children, you could consider being a school counselor, child psychologist, pediatric nurse, teacher, etc. You could consider occupational or physical therapy, a substance abuse counselor, an executive director for a non-profit organization, or a firefighter. There are many jobs in which you can help people directly, but there are also many in which you can indirectly contribute to the well-being of people, such as a clinical laboratory scientist. The field of health and medicine offer such a huge variety of careers to choose from, and many are in high demand, such as nursing. If you would like to help people within the business world, you could consider being a consultant, an I/O psychologist, or working with human resources. If you already know you want a career that helps people, it's important to think about how you would want to help people in a way that is meaningful to you! What are you good at? What motivates you to want to help people and why? Do some research on which jobs are in high demand, expected to grow, offer a suitable pay, and think about these things as you look for opportunities to experiment. Many students enjoy volunteering and find it provides valuable experience that helps them discover what they're really passionate about! Good luck on your decision, and I hope you excel and find a meaningful way to make a difference!
