I cant seem to chose the right career for me. Im a 15 year old sophmore- is it too late to decide?

xxm3sm0riz3dxx asked the question:


First let me tell you what type of person I am- so you can help me better.

I am a very creative person. I am very good at learning things on my own. I have looked at variety of careers. And some are so different I just cant decide. Im not interested in salary- Im interested in being happy.

Ive thought about psychiatrist, interior designer, architect, graphic designer, or a writer.

Right now as a sophmore Im taking advanced english 2, sculpture 1, a video production class, and personal family living. And creativity can not be taught so thats just something i was blessed with.

Im very scared that i will never find something im good at or something i can see myself doing for the rest of my life. and im so confused.

    The average college student changes their major 7 times.

    Don’t sweat it, you’ve got AGES.

    It’s too early. Just go into a good general major in college. You never know where you might find your muse. Most people actually change in college anyway.

    It’s never to late. Just make sure you do well on the ACT and have a good GPA and you should be fine

    It is truly never too late.
    Are you willing to start at the bottom, even as a volunteer?
    The Public Relations, Markting, Advertising area is always in need of truly creative people. It is worth checking out.

    They are starting places that can lead to truly exciting arenas as you grow into your adulthood.

    Good luck to you.

    it’s never too late to find a career. I go to school with people in their mid 30’s who are interested in the animation field, I’m 21 and didn’t decide until I was 19 that I wanted to come here. I finished highshool and worked for over a year at a couple jobs and saved money to put towards college, once I decided what I wanted to do I had a nice little savings account to get me started.
    Don’t stress out too much, just enjoy highschool and try and figure out what you really love.

    your still young to young to decide what you wont to do for the rest of your life go on to collage and pick a few courses you like dont just stick to one thing and go from there. enjoy bein a teenager

    Wow, you are still very young… don’t worry about it so much yet. It is not too late. I was 16 when I decided I wanted to be a film director and I had been making short movies all my life and never really thought of that as a carrer option previously. You still have a few years to decide… just wait til you know what will really make you happy! Hope this helps!

    that’s normal at 15 you don’t have the capacity to know how you feel for the next 80 years just do what you like for now and keep your options open.

    Most Americans don’t choose till between sophmore and junior year of college when you have to declare a major. The best gage is to ask your parents what you said you wanted to be when you grew up at age 6 and younger. Most parents say “I don’t Know or I don’t remember”. Don’t take that for an answer as your first instincts are usually right and people who go into the field they chose prior to age six are more successful and happier than anyone else.

    You have lots of time.

    Focus your attentions on taking classes that interest you and will have some use in wherever your future endeavours will take you.

    I don’t know why everyone expects teenagers to decide their entire lives before they even turn 17. You will probably live to 100 and during that time can have several careers. You do not have to lock yourself into just one.

    Decide your major later. There is no rush.

    In the meantime, pick something that you are interested in now, you can always change your mind later.

    It’s not too late to decide on a career. College courses will give you a taste of a variety of subjects. And it’s not uncommon for even college students to change their major/career aspirations 3x during their college experience. I would suggest try talking to different people in the areas that you’re interested in. They can give you some insight into what being a psychiatrist or interior designer is all about. And don’t feel that you should only focus on one career goal…you can accomplish many throughout your lifetime. Good luck!

    You should be a hair stylist. Open your own salon and be innovative, fresh and stylish. Thus you will have a blend of the creative with the financial and meet a lot of interesting artsy people along the way.

    It’s never too late. You have plenty of time to decide on a career choice. Don’t beat yourself up about it. You will probably change your mind on career choices 50 million times before you find what you really want. Just give yourself time and just worry about getting good grades right now. You will find the right career for you.

    Oh course not sweetheart your still in high school just focus on your grades right now, and get through what has to be done first. Then move on to bigger and better things (what has to be done). Cause right now you have harder things to worry about then chose the right career for you, you have school and your parents, plus all the little things to worry about meaning plans with friends. Wait till you have the time to support yourself, and put all your effort in the career you chose. In stead of trying to manage a career, school, homework, friends, plus your social life meaning a boyfriend or girlfriend. Just wait, you have plenty of time, and all you need to worry about now is school and homework.

    not at all… just go ahead
