Know that it is normal to struggle with knowing exactly the role or the thing you want to work at, but all of that will become clearer as soon as you start talking to people on the field. Another thing that can help you get an idea of what you might want to do is to go through job postings. Read postings from different roles so you can get familiar on the high level tasks that people in that field are expected to carry out. But try not get misguided by the "requirements" section; more often than not, recruiters and companies list out requirements that may not necessarily be a dealbreaker. And for the ones that are dealbreakers, then you get an idea of what are the things you need to start working on so you can make the transition.
Think about what aspects of your job you liked so far and what aspects of your job you prefer to change.
There's an interesting test that I can recommend to get to know your current and your " hidden strengths".
Best of luck!
Admitting Clerk; LVN, RN, Dr, xray tech, custodian, warehouse, purchasing, personnel director
You could work in purchasing, personnel, administrative, etc in lots of industries besides healthcare. In which case, what industry do you want? Big box retail? Food Service? what?
Decide what it is you don't like about your current job, and, what you are looking for in your next job. Be realistic.
Determine if you need any additional schooling to get to where you are going, and if so, how you are going to live while going to school. Can you stay in your current job, live at home, etc? It'd be really sweet if you could stay in your current job and get tuition assistance, while planning your exit.
Analyze your finances. determine if you can afford a paycut, if necessary, and, what salary you need. Again, be realistic, and plan for unexpected expenses.
Consider the military
Hope this helps!
Don't regret or list the what ifs, go into this journey w/ optimism, excitement, & a willingness to learn.
I had been a flight attendant for 4.5 years when I knew the time had come to move on.
I moved to a new state (my home state) to begin my new career in the capitol as a legal proofreader, editing the legislation for my state.
It was scary, yet I knew the time had come, the time was right, & I needed to leave my current job because I was unhappy.
Trust in yourself. Everything else will fall into place & work itself out, it always does.
