Some people believe that college students should consider only their own talents and interests when choosing a field of study. Others believe that college students should base their choice of a field of study on the availability of jobs in that field.

Write a response in which you discuss which view more closely aligns with your own position and explain your reasoning for the position you take. In developing and supporting your position, you should address both of the views presented.

Throughout history of mankind, education has had a special place in the people's life. What has helped us to become here, from caves to the fully equipped houses, has been nothing but education. Therefore, I believe that universities and colleges should pay attention to the matter of education and bring up motivated students. Accordingly, the students would be enthusiastic in case they follow their talents and interests regardless of the available job positions.

From a psychology point of view, the students’ interests and talents would ignite their curiosity in their favorite field. Then, this curiosity would lead the students to delve into their fields. Therefore, the students would be motivated enough to go to the edge of their fields. As a result, a society which pays attention to these game-changing characteristics of the students, will develop in almost all dimensions such as economy, culture, science, and politics. For instance, Isaac Newton as a psychologist and Sigmund Freud as a physicist are unimaginable. In fact, their interests and talents which usually provide impetus for going forward in investigation had caused them to develop theories about the gravity and the subconscious.

On the other hand, studying a field without any enthusiasm would result in apathy. Therefore, the students who feel apathetic would have two choices: first, continuing the same way, or, second, giving up what they have got as yet. In the first situation, the students will finish their college without any deep work in their field, then, they will fill job positions in which they have no interests and talents. As a result, their outcome would be shallow and even useless, which is undesirable. In the next situation, the students will study in another field again, or they will work in an unrelated job position, both of which is the waste of time and money, because they could not use what they have learnt in the college. Thus, I think that it is better to lead the students to follow their interests and to study in a field which they have talent.

However, some people believe that the students should choose their field based on the available by claiming that every society needs various experts, so, colleges should control this matter and distribute the students among necessary field evenly. In addition, the students would be jobless if they have an inclination towards some specific fields. But, in a large scale, for instance a country, the students are different enough regarding their characteristics and tastes, so, there is no need to be worry about the vacant job positions. Because, the diversity will cause filling these positions automatically. Moreover, on the one hand, the excessive job seekers and on the other hand, the excessive vacant job positions in a society are clearly controversial matters, but they are not insolvable. Because, in the first situation, the students can apply abroad, or start a business on their own which fosters entrepreneurship, and in the other one, the employers can announce their positions in order to recruit the foreign people.

To sum up, the college students should consider only their own talents and interests when choosing a field of study in order to stay motivated, which finally will result in an impressive achievements and will prevent wasting time and money.
