Hi! Okay so I took your course, but I still feel so lost. I found myself back to step one. I am an 18 year-old-freshman in college. And I am so lost on how to pick a major that best fits me. I want something that will lead me to a job I love. I’m a thriver and a little bit of a tribe member. I am attracted to fulfillment, balance, connection, creativity, stability, fun, collaboration, competence, leadership, and comfort. I want a career that won’t be the same routine every day, gives me a sence that I did something to help the world, pays well, has a good job outlook, and will still give me time for vacation and family time. I am a people person too! I’m majoring in Computer Information Technology and I really don’t like it. I mainly chose it because it has a good job outlook and it pays well. However, jobs with my major are sooooo antisocial. Collaboration and connection are things I really value. I don’t want to be sitting in front of my computer in an office all alone for a long time. The last thing I want is a mediocre life. I want to travel and impact people’s lives. I just don’t know what major to pick for that. I’ve also taken the Myers-Briggs personality test and I am an ENFP. ENFP are basically creative and entertainers. I don’t live in Hollywood, and am an awkard gawky silly person haha. And all the other options they have for ENFP either dont pay well, or their just dont have good job outlooks. I just seriously need help. How do I pick a major I will like and not hate? After taking your course I decidedcd to change my major to either finance or accounting because those careers are stable, and give good hours…. but I don’t know if I’m making the right decison here. People say to do internships to find out if it’s something I will like but I have NO TIME for that. I’m a student athlete. I run track and field, and I have practice every day from 4 to 6 pm. Sooo what types of majors do you guys recomend for me? Or what are some steps I can take to decide what major to pick? What steps do I need to take to visualise what kind of career I want? Please help me. I need serious help.
