Someone asked me this question recently and it got me a bit flustered. I figured I should know the answer to a question like this, because I’m in the career development field, after all.
Here is the question…what’s your first reaction?
Knowing what you know now, if you could go back to your senior year in high school and choose a major and career path all over again, would you choose the same one? What path would you choose?
For all the pondering I have done over questions like this, I didn’t have a concrete answer ready to go. I mulled it over and hummed and hawed and came to the conclusion that my interests, at their core, have not really changed and that, if I were able to zip back in time and have a “do-over”, I would still be facing the same tough decision that I did back then. For me, it was always law vs. psychology. Plain and simple. And it still is.
Do you wish you had a “do-over?” What path would you choose?
