Your observation about the Ideal Career Test’s recommendation is pretty accurate. Also, it is natural to feel a bit dejected when you are desperately looking for a clear answer to “What should I do next?” and you receive a bunch of broad directions. What you need now is a series of discussions with your Parents, other good wishes, and my personal recommendation will be to talk to a qualified Counselor who can help you arrive at a decision.
The Ideal Career Test has been designed to create a boundary with well-structured information about you as an individual and the top 3 fields where, with proper effort, you can have a flourishing career. This can now be used to debate various pros and cons of the options in front of you. You should especially look at economic factors, geopolitical trends and other real-time information that are not covered in the Ideal Career Test prompts but can have a significant impact on your choices.
As an example, I clearly remember my student, Parag, who was passionate about becoming a commercial pilot and his ideal career test also suggested it as one of the top 3 suitable fields. But when he discussed it with a Counselor and his Father, they could easily see that a pilot training program was a costly affair for this family. They were happy to see other options that would help Parag find a fulfilling course that leads to other prestigious profession and also fit their budget.
On similar lines, there are many concerns about degree-inflation and fake institutions that you should thoroughly check before arriving at any conclusion.

Wouldn't it be so wonderful if you could lead a life that is not given to you by people or situations around you but the one that you desire from within your heart? I had dreamt of such a life for long and, therefore, took a decision of dropping off my decade-long career in geospatial space and follow my heart. No matter how successful and rewarding my job was, I knew my true calling is connecting and engaging with people. So, I went on to become a certified life coach offering personalised 1-on-1 and group coaching programs to-
* To-be professionals not able to decide which course to take next or which skill to acquire that best suits their interest and capability.
* Working Professionals who took a break in career but now want to re-start
* Working professionals who are discontented with their current position and want to make a move or shift
Starting from identifying my clients' needs to establishing goals, I work toward helping them shift their mindset and think bigger so that they can reach their full potential and grow professionally.
