Q:  I’m a freshman and college and I want to know what it’s like to work in different fields. My interests are many but they’re varied—I want to do something fun, that I enjoy, and that I get a lot out of. What do peoples work lives look like?

Three years to decide

A: The best way to scope out potential career fields are internships.  Not only will you gain valuable experience and build your contacts, but you get to see exactly what goes on every day—the good, the bad, and of course, the ugly. Vault also has “Day in the Life” profiles, like this one of Videogame Lead Animator Jonathan Cooper. These break down the job for you by the hour, so you can see what Jonathan does every day.
