Share more about your job and why you love (or parts that you dislike) about it!
A degree can be a general degree or a specialised degree. You choose a general degree if you are still uncertain about the kind of career you want. You choose a specialised degree if you are very sure about your future career. Business is a general degree but law is a specialised degree.
I did a local poly diploma and went overseas to study at a reputable University in Australia, both certification are Tourism and Event Management related. but 5 years in the industry, I had my fair share of fun, love the client interactions and experience. But I realised that with the crazy working hours I dont have time for my family anymore, till they fall sick. So I ask myself what I want ultimately in life? I left for the insurance industry because I want the control of my life, want to do something with a meaning. So instead of doing something you like, do something you good at and you will have time and money do to something you like?

After a few years I have been working, I wish someone would have advised me to find out the details what are the relevant jobs which the course of study I have chosen lead to. At least, have conversations with those already in the working fields to tell what are the real tasks, roles and also the prospect. But note that choosing the right company is also critical. I think some of the education or career fairs would be helpful.
