I am very confused about my career. which career should I choose so that I do not regret it in future?

I have a little interest in many fields but not much in any one of them. ive not worked in any fields so cant say about interest. my point is that whatever career I choose I should not regret it in future. I want a job which I would enjoy doing. the options in my mind are - computer engineer, financial analyst, commercial pilot.

Good to know you want to choose a career options having bright prospects !
I will assume you are in 10th - 12th std currently.
you really need to understand yourself not only on your interest but what are your innate skillset...
My First suggestion is get your psychometric test done. This will give you lot of clarity in the first place itself.

Secondly, you have mentioned Three options in your mind
1. Computer Engineer
2. Financial Analyst
3. Commercial Pilot

Let me tell you Dear one thing is for sure that no matter you go for any options Love what you are learning and Doing and give your 100% otherwise things can be very bad.
So keeping this thing in mind let me tell you about the three options.

One thing is common for all three- YOU REALLY NEED TO WORK HARD EXHAUSTIVELY TO GET INTO TH E PREMIER INSTITUTES TO STUDY Computer Science or Financial Analyst or Commercial Pilot.

All three options are good in its place with its own pros and cons .
1. Computer Engineer - Very Rewarding option when you have studied from good Institutes. Do it from Top engineering institues like IITs, NITs , other top regional enggineering institutes. You get good placements in India and Abroad.
Remember you should be be an expert which will excel you higher in this field. You need to be consistently updated to survive in this industry because technology changes frequently.
2. Financial Analyst - Again very rewarding . To because a CFA itself is a challege . if you become one its good.
3. Commercial Pilot - Go for this option if you are really really passionate about it. Lot of training , money, physical fitness
involved into it. Finally getting the Licence to become one takes time.
Last word- NO Options are bad, All options are Good only you are competent enough to handle it... So please get to know your Skill sets.

Wish You All The Best!
