KAPLAN OFFICIAL EXPLANATION:

D

One idiom being tested here is hope for versus hope to. One can hope for something to happen or for a thing-hope for a peaceful resolution to the problem. One can also hope to do something-hope to travel the world one day.

In this sentence, the students want to do something: change careers. The proper idiom is hope to. Eliminate (A) and (B). Another idiom tested here is exchange for, so (C)'s exchange with is wrong. (E) doesn't specify what the "drab jobs" are being exchanged for.
