Step 3: Major/Career choices and the Personal Fit
Once you have made some choices for a major/career, look into specific requirements and match them against your skills, abilities, expectations and practical concerns. Does your choice ‘fit’ you?
Look at the course work – for example, does the major require classes in areas that do not match your academic strengths, i.e. do you want to be a doctor but do not do well in the sciences?
How many semesters are needed to complete the degree? Degree completion can be delayed if prior coursework does not apply to the major you are considering.
How much preparation time is required before you are qualified to work? Some fields require graduate degrees, internships and/or certification.
