When facing major decisions like what you want to do with the rest of your life, it is only natural to feel completely overwhelmed. Students often start to think,"I don’t know what I’m good at" or "I’m interested in XYZ, but I can't get paid to do that, can I?!" The key to selecting a major or career path that will make your student happy is in knowing themselves--knowing what they value, what they enjoy, and what their strengths are.
