Out of work? Want to secure your future? Consider this: Don't decide what you want to do, but rather who you want to be. Then go to it and create your personal brand.
Consequently, your education should be focused on gaining expertice and not on entering a particular line of work. Today, even industry specific education has become less important. Whether it be knowledge or ability, just focus on becoming known for being the best at what you know and/or do, and you'll be fine.
And one more thing: You gotta be passionate about it!
