I'm not sure why any competent career guidance person would want to force any particular career on you --- what would be the benefit to them of doing so ? I wonder if your personality is a touch obsessive, and thus finding it especially hard to make such choices ? If so, some help from a shrink could be useful. You're fortunate to have apparently two equally good and appealing and promising choices --- so many people find no choices at all.
Maria makes an excellent point, about how rare it is to find one job that uses every talent you have, and how practical it often is to find a satisfying job and to use one's other skills in other ways and as hobbies or part-time activities. I can identify with that --- I had multiple interests and talents and made choices that have given me opportunities to exercise most of them. I chose to go first and full-time into medicine and psychiatry, two of my passions, because they required the heaviest load of work and qualifications before one could start. But I also wanted to be a writer, and became one, writing and publishing many books all worked on in my very limited spare time. I was tempted by the stage, and managed to find opportunities to write some staged plays and songs, again, also spare time. I was very interested in the law, and later in life worked in forensic psychiatry, giving expert testimony in major law cases. And so on.
If there is a difference between your choices in employability, the one with a better choice of actual jobs may be the best to go for in terms of employment, with the other work developed as a side-line
I look forward to eharing in a fresh posting, what your actual choices are
