I need to choose a field or a career. What can I do to choose a field that is right for me?
A field or a career is sometimes an occupation undertaken for a significant period of a person’s life and with opportunities for progress. Often, a career demands a more broad training (law) and other times it is specific (electrical engineering). A counselor at Dristikon.org can help you select occupations you may wish to consider and to pick majors that might help you enter your preferred occupations. Academic advisors at Drishtikon.org can also give you more information about majors and help you select a major. A general advise to all the prospects is to choose a field or career you inspires and ignites you more.
I think I am in the wrong field. How Do I choose another field?
While choosing a field, it is often helpful to relate it to your choice of careers. If this is the case, you may wish to talk to a counselor at Drishtikon.org. If you don’t like your current major, you can start working on the majors you find interesting and fascinating, learn about various opportunities to choose from the field of your interest for your post graduation, and by the time you manage to graduate, you can actually switch to that preferred major for your post graduation. You can even start afresh if you wish to or if it is feasible for you. Even looking up for avenues in the field of your interest may help you a lot to succeed in life.
I usually hear that some fields have a better scope and thus better career opportunities than the others. So on what parameters the “Scope” of any field depends?
Choosing a field is one of the most crucial decisions one has to make in his/her life. Finding the right career and making an informed career decision requires relevant and reliable information about the opportunities that exist in a particular field. Many aspiring professionals are quick to select a career path only to find out, down the road, that the career path they have chosen doesn’t enable them to achieve their personal, professional, or financial goals. Picking the right career field can keep you from experiencing disappointment when job hunting. There is so much competition for jobs right now and little job growth in many industries. That is why it is important to find a career track that is growing and not contracting. Depending on your area of interest chose something that benefits you personally and socially i.e. you love what you do and doing what you love satisfies/fulfils your basic needs. Research of the field of your interest and the career opportunities available in that field has to be you priority before taking this major step of selection of your major or degree. The concept of scope of a field might vary from time to time, what you need to focus on is your own satisfaction and wellness, so that in future you do not regret making this decision.
