"Relax and be open to different career opportunities and possibilities. You shouldn’t be picky as an undergraduate searching for an internship, but instead be open to trying something you may not have thought you would enjoy. You never know what will spark your interest once you’re there. And ask a lot of questions. While I was not asked to intern for every contact I made through the alumni database, I did ask a ton of questions about graduate schooling, work experience and career decisions. I was surprised and enlightened by many of the successful business people I talked to. Talking to people who have been in a situation like your own in the past is can be an invaluable kind of opportunity."

Your career plan for sophomore year is exploration. You should explore majors and start seeing potential links between your academic and experiential learning, such as internships, and future jobs.
This process should be gradual. Making decisions now doesn't mean you will have to live with them forever. You can always change your mind.
You can find suggested actions specific to sophomores on the Hiatt Career Center Web site.
