That is a great question. I personally followed the path of pursuing a career based on my passion of making a difference. I work in the field of corporate social responsibility, meaning I manage philanthropy efforts of a for-profit company. I lead volunteer and giving engagement for our employees, so in many ways, I am able to combine my job with my passion of empowering individuals to make a difference.
I hope this is useful information. I am not sure what you are passionate about, but hopefully you are able to pursue a career and do what you love at the same time.
