Q.: I am a senior in college and I have had trouble identifying the career I would like to pursue. I see myself as an author, a therapist, an artist ... a “Jackie of all trades”! I just don't know where to start. Can I pursue all of my career dreams without making a big mess of my life? – Choiceless, Syracuse, N.Y.

A.: Here's the thing: You can pursue your various dreams, just not all at the same time. I recommend that you choose to first pursue the career path where you have the most experience. If you have had internships or job experience of any kind in one of your areas of interest, seek employment in that area so you can build on your experience.

Master that career goal and then add another. In this way you can be successful.
