Hi Nathan,

My first suggestion would be to stay away from thoughts of feeling lost. If you can share a little more about your interests, your earlier work experiences, we can look and determine what might be a better direction ahead for you. The ultimate goal is for you to do something that you care or love, so going into work everyday is exciting.

Good luck, and do not give up!

Hi Nathan.

We don't really have enough to go on in order to give you any guidance. What are you passionate about? What fields interest you? Are you an animal person, a techie, enjoy arguing or debating? What jobs have to had and what do you like and dislike about each one? Is there a particular class in school that you really enjoyed? Why?

You want to pursue a field that really interests you. If you pick a field that you don't like, it will make every day miserable. Who was it that said something like If you love your job, you will never work a day in your life.

Best of luck! If you answer the questions above, it should point you in a direction.

Hi Nathan,

I would first need to know the type jobs you have had and wether or not if you enjoyed any of them. You need to ask yourself are a people person, a animal person etc. And that in turn could guide you in the direction of a job/ career. Secondly, are you looking for a job or career? That is another question you need to think about. I hope this helps some along with other advice. Good luck to you !

Hi Nathan!

There is hope. All you need to do is to start to sort things out.

Here is a great way to start. Here are some exercises that will help you to determine which might be a good way for you to concentrate your efforts: https://www.themuse.com/advice/14-free-personality-tests-thatll-help-you-figure-yourself-out

With this in mind, you can - talk to the head of alumni relations of the school which you most recently attended to arrange to talk to graduates who working in your area of interest to find out what they do, how they got there, what advice they have, and how you feel about it. - talk to the reference librarian at your local library to locate and attend meetings of professional organizations to which professionals in your area of interest belong, so you could could make connections and learn more

Here are some good things to do to gain valuable information and create valuable relationships: http://www.wikihow.com/Network https://www.themuse.com/advice/nonawkward-ways-to-start-and-end-networking-conversations https://www.themuse.com/advice/4-questions-to-ask-your-network-besides-can-you-get-me-a-job?ref=carousel-slide-1 https://www.themuse.com/advice/the-job-search-strategy-thatll-make-you-15-times-more-likely-to-be-hired

Networking is very powerful and can have surprising results.

If you were to let me know your career area of interest and in which city and state you reside, I could provide some more direct help. Also, could you let me know what jobs you had and under what circumstances they ended?

Let me know if and how this helps. Keep me posted.
