1. make a list of your interests e.g. reading
2. make a list of your strengths e.g. attention to detail
3. highlight those areas which you don't enjoy e.g. maths
4. understand your personality type e.g. you may use external publicly available tools such as Myers Briggs, Insights Discovery to understand your communication style and preferences
5. perform research on suitable career paths e.g. journalism, accountancy, law, floristry
6. obtain guidance from a careers advisor, sharing your notes so far to help inform their guidance
If things don't go according to plan, consider these experiences as learning and growth opportunities and start again!
Glad that you are thinking ahead for what you want to choose as a career.
Being a student, it is a good time to think over things that you are good at, things that interest you and things that provide for a stable, well-paying job.
I would suggest you take a few days off, write down the above things down and see what paths they may take you down the years.
Sometimes, it is difficult to make a clear decision regarding a career choice but it would help if you can broadly choose what domains/areas that you would want to work on. So in this case, you would need to make a clear-cut decision about which field (say, engineering or medicine or law or any other field - as it is tough going back once you choose this) that you want to take up and then you can decide which branch you want to specialize in.
But, once you have made this decision based on your interests, aptitude and market-demand - do not compare with your friends/peers and strive your best to become the best you can be in your chosen field.
Hope this helps!
1. Do you have a talent or skill that just comes naturally to you? If so look to see what jobs can use that skill
2. What energizes you, what do you like to do?
3. What brings you down, or what don't you like doing? Keep in mind we all may do things in our jobs we don't like but look to areas that you know you could not do a specific task day in and day out
4. Volunteer for organizations. This may seem odd but you will get exposure to different tasks and businesses and it gives you an opportunity to figure out more about yourself. This may open doors that you have never considered or even new about.
5. Talk to people find out what they do for their jobs
6. Think out of the box your career may not even be out there yet so don't limit yourself to defined roles today as they change daily.
7. Look at LinkedIn for seminars or profiles to see if anything peeks your interest
8. Network, network, network keep getting your name out there and meet people
Good luck, nothing is holding you back
I hope that helps!
