    Hi Emily,

    First of all don’t panic! (easier said than done right?).

    Historically people worked at one vocation throughout their whole life’s (think IBM etc) however modern culture has made is ok to go back and retrain to pursue another completely different line of work.

    So the take away from that is if you suddenly don’t want to work in psychology a few years after you graduate you can always retrain and pursue a different career. Never the less you should try to get good marks during your stay at uni as this will broaden the scope when it comes to retraining later.

    The second point I want to make is choose something that you love to do. This will getting out of bed on a cold morning much easier. Make a list of your favourite things and your talents then narrow down which careers would be suitable for people with your loves and skills.

    Hope that helps a little. 🙂

      Hi 🙂
      Thank you for your lovely comment! Yes not panicking is a lot easier said than done haha but it is comforting know that it’s become easier to retrain if I suddenly realise I’ve made a mistake with my career choice in a few years. That’s a very helpful tip about writing down a list of talents/favourite things and I’ll definitely do that, so thank you. 🙂
