It is nice to see you start your question with a fathee and asking Waheguru ji for help in selecting your choice of studies.

Disclosure: I want to tell this to you from the start that I am not from New Zealand thus as far as what course work is "in demand" so to speak, I may not be able to guide you with such information.

Having said that, I can tell you about my personal experience which may help you with your situation. Like you, when I completed my schooling, I was also left with the question of what to do with my life in terms of collage and then work. I was young, I wanted to do something with which I can make a lot of money and not have to work too hard at the same time! But the problem was that I had no idea what degree would give that to me! Some of my friends had a very clear sense of direction in terms of their professional life. They knew before they ever completed their 9th grade what degree they wanted to do, what school they wanted to go to and what job they were going to do after they complete their collage. I on the other hand, was completely clueless.

My brother kept pushing me to go into "IT" since he had done it and was in a good job. Given that it was tried and tested by my brother, it seemed like a good major to put in my "short list" of majors. But I was not too crazy about IT. The though of sitting in a office for 8+ hours in front of a computer trying to make a "program" work just did not appeal to me. I thought of my self as a outdoors type of person. I did not wanted to be stuck in an office! So I decided to do Criminal Justice. Long story short, after one semester of criminal justice classes, I realized that it was not for me either.

Then, I panicked. I was afraid that after going through so much thought process, I was back to square one! I had no idea what I wanted to do. Like you, I remember asking waheguru ji for direction. Interesting fact is that, the guru will always give you the direction even if its not the shortest way to get to where you want to be. So in my confused mind, I decided to follow the advice of my brother and do IT as my major. While taking classes in IT, I also got the opportunity to work for an IT company. Soon, my worst fear came true, again! I hated working in IT! I told myself everyday that I would not be able to do this for the rest of my life. Three very long months later, I quit my IT job and I was back in school and back to the same question. What in ... (more)
