My best advice would be to not be afraid to try new things and see what works best for YOU. During your academic courses and future positions, take notes of the things that you both like and dislike. Try to match your interests with your career path and talk to people who are currently in any job/field you are interested in to learn about their experience. Additionally, try to acquire internships in different fields you are interested in because that gives you a quick snapshot into the life of someone who holds that position. And of course, be patient and remember that there's no such thing as a wasted job experience because there is a lesson behind every job. Finding a career that you love may take time but stay the course and I'm sure you will get there eventually :) Hope this helps!
One thing to keep in mind is that, no matter how much you love what you're studying or what you do, sometimes work/study will feel like work or studying...and that's ok! When I was studying Computer Science, there were moments when I contemplated switching majors to something easier but I stuck with it and I couldn't be happier that I did! Always be mindful of what you like/don't like about activities you participate in, don't be afraid to try new things, and remember that it is never too late to adjust. Your path is all your own and, as long as you're following what makes you happy, your career will also help keep you fulfilled instead of just something to pay the bills.
I hear from many college graduates that they’re not sure what they want to do, it’s not uncommon to not know yet,
it doesn’t always happen overnight.
I do highly recommend taking assessments that will point out your applicable characteristics / skill sets and recommend what type of career path/ profession should be the best fit for you.
I currently work in the Forensic Accounting field. I originally chose accounting because I liked dealing with financial matters in high school such as assisting with my senior dance class' donations, helping one of my teachers with handing out school money, etc. Once I decided to major in accounting, I then researched the types of jobs that accountants could have. Forensic accounting really interested me due to the investigative nature of the field. Growing up, I always liked crime shows and trying to piece together what happened. That is what ultimately led me to the career that I am in now.
