Fastest Growing Industries for Freshers

‘You do you!’ This was the advice I got when starting my career. Was it helpful? Ummm, yes and no. At the time, this advice seemed lame and unhelpful because the point of asking the question was that I didn’t know what to do. But now that I look back, that was pretty solid advice. People will always tell you what ‘they think you should do’, without ever asking you about your interests, passions, and goals. So in retrospect, this was pretty solid advice.

In a world where you can be anything, the paradox of choice awaits you at the end of the tunnel. But it is a good thing, you can explore different career paths, and research what careers are out there and what you are good at, and would love to do for a major part of your life. It is a major decision, but it is important to remember this decision is not set in stone, you can always pivot your career in different directions later, many have done it and will tell you that it was the best decision they made.
