Since we do use comparison and contrast so often to make decisions, in this paper, we will use it to examine a big one. Consider two different career paths that you might choose to pursue. They can be as alike or as different as you choose, but they should be realistic (i.e. choose careers you REALLY ARE considering). For which of the two careers are you best suited? Which of the two best meets your interests, goals, and aspirations? Which requires the most preparation? The most expense? Which do you think would make you happiest and why?
Incidentally, if you tell me that you have already 100% made up your mind about what you want to do for a living, you will make me very sad because it is FAR too early for that. So humor an old woman and at least pretend that you know the world is wide open to you and you can explore many options and even–gasp!–change your mind.
