In society today, it is quite common to find that most individuals are working a job or in a career that was the result of a chosen path that was easiest, had the least resistance, looked the most glamorous or highest paying at the time, or part of a chosen educational and career choice dictated or sold to them as being in their best interest.
In speaking to youth and young adults, it is an eye opening experience for them when I share and communicate the facts and statistics regarding how common it is for students to not have a chosen career path or major prior to college, and to change major’s multiple times during college, and then to ultimately end up in a career or job that really has nothing to do with the degree earned. These statistics reflect the fact that it is very rare for young adults to know exactly who they are, what they want to do, and who they want to become, and to already be down a path in thought, planning, and action. Thus, it’s really a matter of trial and error and evolving forces that leads them into the ultimate wage-earning job and career.
