Rebecca’s Answer

This is a question you may need to ask yourself. We can try to give some suggestions to you. But, the most important is your feeling.
Firstly, you can think about what is your interest in. Do you have any hobbies or what do you like to do in your spare time? Alternatively, do you have anything you want to achieve?
This is where you can start with. You should start on the things you like to do or move forward. I thinks these are the things you would have passion on.
Hope this helps! Good Luck!

Vince’s Answer

Many companies focus on looking what you are not good at and training those areas up. While that is important, it doesn't necessarily lead to the best results. My company does a great job of having us identify our strengths, and part of this process is identifying what fills us with energy vs what tires us. Those things that energize us are our strengths and it is where we should pour the majority of our development time into. I truly believe that this can translate to a search for your passion. What energizes you when you think about doing it? Now, this doesn't mean that everything you get excited about is your professional passion; after all, I love PB&Js but probably can't find a job eating them all day. What it does mean is that you can whittle down the list of things that you do at work or at school and begin to home in on what will really be fulfilling to you.

Annie’s Answer

Rebecca and Vince are right, Tiera! Start exploring the things that really bring you joy and the things you are good at, and often that "connecting piece" will lead you to your career path. You can explore while at school: what are the subjects that excite you? What is it about them that you find most fascinating? Then think about how you like to spend your free time: what are your hobbies and what are your interests? Why? What about those things bring you joy? Do you feel life's rhythm while soaring on a skateboard, singing, playing baseball, or painting a picture? Do you find yourself collecting and organizing things? Are you fascinated about the history behind them? Do you look at the stars in the sky and wonder what it would be like to pilot a plane or travel in space? Or is it the stories behind the constellations that pique your interest? Does putting together color, pattern, and texture make your heart sing?

The things we care about are important windows into our dreams and our skills. But even an afterschool or weekend job can help you discover what you like to do. Think about each experience and what you liked best about it as well as the things you didn't like so well. Sometimes a job can also help you decide what field you would like to pursue, even if it's not in the particular summer job you hold. A job sweeping floors and bussing tables might help you meet other restaurant personnel so you can ask them questions about what it's like to be a manager, server, line cook, or chef. A job scanning files at a company might help you meet engineers and sales personnel, supervisors and production workers. Each time you meet someone who has a job that intrigues you, don't be afraid to ask them questions. They will be happy to talk to you about their career path!
