Hi Lachelle,

I feel like at some point everyone gets tired of their job but it is what you make it. For me, my job has to involve things that I love because those are my interests and I always want to learn more. Mindset is always important too. If you are getting sick of your job then change it. Go into a different department that interests you, start working on projects that you want to work on. As we grow our interests are always changing and that's fine. Always strive to learn more and never think that you are stuck because there's always a way to do what you love.

Savita’s Answer

Job interests change over time. Some people do really well with turning what they love into a job yet for others it takes away the love out of it when it turns into a job. Today most people entering the workforce are expected to have 3 or 4 different careers in their lifetime. So try it and switch quickly if it doesn’t work.

Savita recommends the following next steps:

Do an interest test in careers
Do an aptitude test

Zach’s Answer

Hi Lachelle! It sounds like you're asking if working with dolphins and sea life would be a career you could get tired off. As other responders have mentioned, it's tough to say what would keep you interested and folks' interests change all the time. But, I would encourage you to think a little deeper about what skills and experience it takes to get your dream job and then considering if you would enjoy pursuing that knowledge. In the case of working with dolphins and sea life, most of trainers have studied animal behavior extensively, either as an animal behaviorist and/or marine biologist. The part where they're swimming with and teaching dolphins is only a small portion of what they actually do. Many of them also have to provide extensive care and planning for the animal and their habitat (if they're part of a exhibition like Sea World). Marine biologists often spend most of their days reading, writing, researching, and planning, only occasionally getting to go and swim with or observe the creatures they study. But, if you love animals and you love swimming, it does sound like pursuing an education in marine biology, biology, pre-veterinarian, and/or animal behavior would behoove you. I'd recommend trying to contact university professors who study Marine Biology and specialize in areas you're interested in and asking what they do. By targeting a professor you're more likely to find someone who already enjoys helping others (demonstrated by their work teaching) and more likely to help you (rather than say a Sea World trainer).
