Eduardo what a great question! It took me a while to find a career that I loved (I became a Software Engineer at 30 years old). My career has helped me feel empowered and changed me in ways I could never imagine, and it has also kept me from exploring some of my other interests (for instance I have a deep love of music and dance, which I do for fun in my free time). My point is, there are often many career paths that will make you happy. Finding what brings you joy involves trying things out, even trying out things you would have never considered before.
Jessica recommends the following next steps:
- If you can..explore different interests through classes, clubs, or communities. If you find that you are leaning towards a certain interest or type, that's great, but if you have some time to "decide" on a career path keep exploring and experimenting to see what really brings you joy in your life. Be open to the fact that what brings you joy may change, and it's ok to change your mind and try something new.
