You should take a long look at yourself to define what you value, excel at, and enjoy in life.

Imane’s Answer

Hi there,
You will be very lucky if you come to find a job that truely interests you. Try not to focus on the financial side of the career but on what you really want to do and what you like to be.
just doing that and you will get on the right career path.
I do like my current job because I have the opportunity to interact with people from different backgrounds on a daily basis. I love also the stressful and challinging part of it.
From the beginning, I was targetting a multinational work enviroment in order to find all these criteria. Your degree can also help you get to where you wanna go, so start by considering an education path that will lead to where you wanna go. I studied in a multicultural enviroment as well and I loved that and wanted to have that in my career as well..
You need to know yourself well enough so that you can figure out things that you can excell at in your job/career path and this will be enough to give you motivation !
Good luck :)
Imane

Hemalda’s Answer

<h1>Hi Lavanya</h1>

I love your question. First of all, Career and passion are two different things. You need to first find what are you passionate about and then build a career out of it. Work is where you spend the most of the time in a day, so choose something that you like and are passionate about. that could be anything that you like. Find what you like the most and find the job on the same. Example: If you like doing something more than 4 hours a day and never get bored about then that is something that you should find a job on. Explore yourself !

Lisa’s Answer

Take all different kinds of classes to test the waters. Hopefully you’ll find your passion. I didn’t decide to be a teacher until I was in my late 20’s. Be patient with yourself. I took intro to psych and thought I wanted to be a shrink. When I took an upper division psych course, I said forget that!!!!

Shelby’s Answer

This is going to be super generalized, but I hope this answer helps. I feel like it takes experience to figure out the best fit for you. Maybe listen to some podcasts, watch some teaching seminars online, look if there are any conferences in your area, etc. For me, I decided I wanted to teach math after having a not-so-great experience with a college math professor. I thought "wow, I love math! And I know for sure I can teach better than this!" Thinking back, it was probably a naïve thought, as I have no idea what that professor was going through at the time. However, this pushed me to pursue this field. After that, I joined university, and then had field experiences where I was teaching as a student teacher in experienced teacher's classrooms. This is when I realized that, for sure, this was the job that was meant for me. I have had doubts about the career path I've chosen. But with these experiences that I have had, I know I am where I need to be.

In short, go out, try new things, see what interests you, and work with it a bit! If it doesn't feel right, you'll know!!

Rachel’s Answer

Passion comes from you, the things you love, what you love to learn, what you love to do. You may not find your passion until you begin college and start taking classes, take classes about what interests you and you will find what drives you!

Chela’s Answer

I work for a really big company--Verizon. After college, I thought I knew what I wanted to do--but it turned out that my understanding of business was way different from reality. The benefit of working at such a large company is that you can try new things all the time until you find one you really love, all under the same "roof." All within one company, I've worked in customer service, sales, business intelligence, executive relations, and now I'm in marketing data analytics. I've found what I love! However, for my peers who are still looking, there are opportunities here in operations, logistics, programming, engineering, advertising, finance, HR, legal, etc. You name it--the position exists. So my suggestion to you would be that if you're torn, work somewhere where you'll have options to explore, grow, and learn. It's definitely much less stressful than switching companies every time you're interested in trying something new.

Hello Lavanya,


You might like to try out different activities by joining college clubs, volunteering, internships etc. to figure out where your strengths lie and what kind of work you enjoy the most. Accordingly, you can decide what you feel most passionate about and would like to pursue further.


Have a great career!
