i'm a 20 yr old accountancy student graduating next 2 years. the problem is i have doubts over my career path. actually i finished highschool without any plans for myself; i used to have. but during the time i need to decide, i cant decide what course to take; worst, i dont want anything at that very moment. ( i was broken hearted for the very first time, God i was really shattered, i used to be level-headed & ambitious until... ) anyway, since that was the case i solicited my parents advice & took it halfheartedly. just recently i kind of had this clear perspective of what i really wanted to be. i dont think a CPA's job is for me. Should i listen to my heart now??? or finish what ive started then follow my heart afterwards???

It is best for you to listen to your heart, because eventhough you graduated in college... you won't be able to love your job. Since right now you know what you want, you can study on that course that you want to pursue, then get a job that you would feel comfortable with after you graduate.

Hello... many peoples experience this. I am one of those.. I chose to take this course because the prospect of the career and the salary.. and i don't have to worry about the job.. because as soon as i finished the study, the job will come to me (and by the time i finished study, i had three job offer and still receiving job offer even i already work with this company for three years). But i supposed to hate this course. I like analytical.. but this course require me to memorize and read those thick books. It burdened me. I felt like change the course several times.. i even tried to see counselor because i did not feel that i was belong to the field. But i managed to stay and get good grades. After finishing study, i landed this job. And here, i found something that i have been looking for. Good salary and satisfaction at the same time. I love this job.. very much. It surprised me... and never thought that this is just what i am looking for. You are the one who should make the decision.... Good luck!!

Listen to your heart right now. You still have time. So you wind up going a little longer for this new avenue, doesn't matter. You're doing what you feel is right, what you want, and there will be so much fulfillment in following that path. Good luck!

it is never too late to start over... i would tell you to listen to your heart, but then again, your heart might mislead you... make a list of things you like doing... are you good with your hands, or are you more of a thinker?... do you crave for attention, or do you like giving attention to others?... would you like to work in a noisy environment, or would you rather it be sober?... do you want to work because of the money, or just to prove something to yourself?... after which, try to make a list of things you might want to try... again, it's never too late to start over, but you might find too many things to regret if you dont decide for yourself...

It's not yet too late. At least you know now what you really want. Yes, it's really disappointing especially because you already have 2 years left, however, if that's not really what you want I think you should make a move. I experienced that before. Last year I was taking up Nursing for summer class. ALthough I know it's not my thing, I've decided to give it a try but then as days go by, I became miserable, although I go to class, my grades are total messed up. I talked to my parents about it, litlle did I know they've seen me crying everyday. So I stopped. Although I already finished a computer course and a caregiving course. Culinary Arts is my passion. Hope I helped.
