Lots of choices and situations are factored into our decisions to do what we do. I study history and literature because I've always been an avid reader, and loved historical and mythological stories. A literature professor encouraged me to study history, and my love for books got me my start in the public library system. What made you decide to do whatever it is you do?

I have always wanted to learn other languages. I am learning Spanish right. Chinese always intrigued me. That is great to hear that you are doing what you love and make good money doing it.
That's interesting! It seems like you found what you liked and went for it. I love learning languages too but use it more for my field of history than as a speaker. Good answer, thanks very much!
As a History major, I often get asked the exact same questions. At the present time, I work in a public library and consider that a baby step to what I eventually want to do. I'm glad you can find plenty of choices for what you really want to do!
I can understand that. In a way that is similar due to the demand of jobs. Sometimes you have to go with a job that will support you and your family. I wish you luck in your education.
yeah, of course when there is a hot field in your place that increases the likelihood of securing a job there is a high tendency of students to follow it but when they increase in number it increases competition as well
That is a good thing to take into consideration; what jobs are greatly needed in the area you live. That ensures a steady income as long as there is a need for that job. Great answer!
Money is always a driving factor and should be considered when picking careers and degrees. It's interesting that you got the idea through a career quiz. It led you to something that you could make money doing and still enjoy it! Good answer, thanks!
Unfortunately that is a problem with lots of students. They study what they dream of doing and get discouraged early on. This makes them either change their major or go back to school. That's good advice! Good answer, thank you!
