    Assalamu Aleykum,
    Jezakellahu Kheyr for the excellent interview.
    As a college student, I am concerned about choosing major. What is your opinion about choosing major? When I first start college, I thought nursing is a good field in terms of job opportunities. with that in mind, I started as a nursing major but then it wasn’t what I was really passionate about. What I like was Psychology and as I researched about the job opportunities, psychology is one of the fields where there is low employment opportunity.

    In general, what do you think about people who are interested in fields where there are less jobs? should they follow their passion and try hard to find jobs or should they choose what is suitable with the market??

      Sr. Selima, as a college student myself, I would say: Follow your passion AND be realistic. Psychology majors can have a good job outlook if they look in the right places. If you get higher ed in psych, you can probably do counseling in schools or clinical settings or even teach. What I advise is: talk to someone in the field that you want to enter and get their advice.
