99 Motivators - Top Takeaways for Success in Picking a Major or Career Path
TOP TAKEAWAYS: SUCCESS IN PICKING A MAJOR OR CAREER PATH
- The media shapes our impressions of what different careers are like. Research the benefits and challenges of your major and career path by interviewing people who work in that industry, and by securing an internship in that field.
- Keep an open mind when choosing a major or career path. Base these decisions on your likes, dislikes, personality, and work style, rather than on the expectations placed on you by family and peers.
- Don’t let anyone crush your dreams. However, the riskier your dream, the better your backup plan must be.
