I've worked in many different industries and at every stop I enjoyed the people more than the work. No don't get me wrong, I was able to learn about each industry at every stop. I learned what skills were transferable and was able to sharpen those skills.
In this current iteration of my career, I am extremely happy. I've been at Verizon since mid 2016 and have been in five different roles. I have been able to build wonderful relationships and know that there are an abundance of opportunities and roles throughout the company.
Now at times, frustration naturally sets in since we are human beings but those moments are not only short lived but are also far and few between.
My advice if you are unsure what you want to pursue a career in, is find something that can allow you to expand into other similar areas, as well as something that you can continue to grow and excel yourself.

Currently I am working as a corporate trainer, so I am teaching adults now instead of children. I am still doing what I love and I never feel like I am working because I enjoy it so much!
I am very happy with the career that I chose. I currently work in the forensic accounting field and I find it very interesting. There are so many different types of projects to work on. As a result of working on different projects, I get exposure to many people who have years of experience in the field. It is a great pleasure to learn from them, grow in my career and become a better Forensic Accountant. Additionally, I obtained my Masters Degree in Forensic Accounting. It is extremely fulfilling to utilize the information that I learned in college on the job.
Yes! I am very happy with the career I chose.
I always saw myself living the businesswoman life, and would play office as a child :D
I have an Bachelor's in Business Administration and an MBA and have worked in various industries utilizing those degrees (real estate, energy, and telecom).
It's also a very broad career path in some ways. I've been a property manager, a financial analyst, a program manager...to name a few.
At the end of the day, it's really about where you passion lies, and the belief that you can do anything you put your mind and effort into.
Best of luck!
