What occupations are yall seeking? For me becoming would be wondeful because I seek knowledge and have the desire to help people better themselves. I also really like money...





Anyways I want to be an anesthesiologist but realostocally I would be a psychiatrist, I dont know if I have the commitment for anesthesiology, or the chemistry skill
Becoming a doctor for the money is a horrible idea. I happen to know someone who went through medical school for the wrong reasons and now has a lot of regret, but what can you do at that point? you've spent your twenties in school, you'll probably owe at least a couple hundred grand in student loans, so you have to keep moving forward with a career you chose for the wrong reasons. Don't pick anything based on salary, it's not worth it. 

My friend also became an anesthesiologist and now he's worried because there is a lot of talk that nurse anesthetists will replace anesthesiologists one day as the country continues to move toward affordable health care (you can pay a nurse anesthetists significantly less than a doctor doing the same thing). 
This is exactly me. I want to help people but I'm not sure exactly how I want to help people. My whole life I was told medical was the way to go with the typical stable job stereotypes and what not. My original plan was to become an oncologist because I wanted to help people and I find cancer to be really interesting, but at the same time I don't know if I would be able to put myself through all the schooling knowing that it's what? 15+ years? I'm already having difficulty managing 2 jobs and taking all these science courses that I'm not even sure if I want to continue. So right now I'm trying to figure out what I have a passion for and what I'm genuinely interested in regardless of the pay.
You guys should also know that you don't really get to pick what kind of doctor you become. You don't just go to medical school and say "I want to be an Oncologist" and then they train you for it. Everything is based on exams. Oncology is probably one of the most, if not the most difficult fields to get into. 

Really? That's an odd system. In England you get to pick and specialise into whatever field you want. 

So if you want to be a GP (general practitioner), or a surgeon (You then get to specialise which field in surgery) or anything else. If anything in England grades determine where you'll have to work in the country, if you do very well it's more probable that you'll get your first choice hospital for your foundation years post med school

I'm studying computer science and also taking a few finance classes. At first I wanted to work on Wall St. for an investment firm then eventually start my own firm but I think Silicone Valley is the place for me good weather, good salary, and a good chance of becoming a millionaire/billionaire. cool

what world do you live in?  sociology is both one of the most uninteresting majors and one of the least employable majors out there.  you're basically screwing yourself over and you don't even realize it.

I have a BA in economics and currently work as a fund manager in academic finance. I had planned on going to B school this past year but had a change of heart. Im currently 2 quarters away from a BA in history (my real passion) but now plan to pursue an MPH next year and stay in academic finance.

i'm not really too worried about it tbh. if i don't end up liking it i can just change, i'm pretty sure there's a 2 month grace period or whatever. but yeah, i'd rather be interested in school as opposed to resenting it because i'm doing a shitty degree that might end up in more money in the long run.

yea, i'm just saying do what you like but be realistic.  i could move to hollywood now and say i want to be an actor, but realistically i will probably fail.

just try to take a variety of classes so you can find other possible areas you might want to major in and you'll be fine

I've graduated and am currently trying to find a job as a copywriter. At the moment I'm trying to build an online portfolio with campaign concepts and the ads I've created since I have no experience with actual clients in the field, yet. With this kind of portfolio, employers don't necessarily want to see how well you can put an ad together, but rather they want to see how your mind works and how you can conceptualize a way to sell a product

Currently doing a BA in English and want to be a magazine journalist, perhaps in my older age write a few books. Can't imagine anything more chill than having a great wife and kids, decent home, writing about things you find interesting or for me, writing novels.
