Ans: I'm sorry to hear that your son is feeling depressed about his career. It's not uncommon for graduates to feel uncertain about their career path, especially when they have multiple options to consider.

1. What activities does he enjoy? What subjects did he excel in during his BBA program? What kind of work environment does he prefer? This self-reflection can provide valuable insights into potential career paths that align with his personal preferences.

2. Professional networking platforms like LinkedIn can be useful for connecting with professionals in fields of interest and learning more about their experiences.

3. Your son can gain practical experience through internships or entry-level positions in industries or organizations that align with his interests. This can provide him with valuable exposure, help him gain new skills, and clarify whether a particular field is a good fit for him.

4. Network with professionals in his desired field through events, industry conferences, or online platforms. Building connections and staying updated with industry trends can provide valuable insights and potential opportunities.
