Guys,in what way do you think it is possible for young people such as students to find their intrests and pursue it?

Think about it,most students pursue a career in which they are not intrested, but unfortunately they figure this out very late.What can we do in order to find our intrests easier and pursue those intrests.

  • Aug 24 2012: Reza...that's a great question.
    I wish I knew what I knew now when I was at your age so I could have made better decisions.
    In my case I didn't really know what I liked to do until I ended up doing it.
    To try to get a better idea of what you like to do in the future by doing a evaluation of yourself.
    I would make a list of all the things I like about a career or choice.
    Then on another list, have descriptions of what that career or choice would offer.
    By comparing these lists you would narrow your choices down to something that would best match your likes.
    The last step I recommend is to actually go and observe people performing the job and see if you would enjoy doing what they are doing.
    If you start thinking like this early in life your chance of making the right decision about a choice or career is on your side. Good Luck!
