There are many skills and interests that I have and they all relate to different job fields. The problem that I am having is being able to pick the right career for the right reason. Some things that I look at are the salary, being passionate about my job, job growth, or it simply fitting my type of personality.

Hi Dasia,

I don't have the ultimate answer, but you are on the right track. Salary, passion, job growth, are definitely some of the most important things everyone looks for. Some other things to consider is location of the industry. For instance, if you want to work in technology, most of tech companies are in California. Likewise, for the biotechnology industry. Make sure the career you pursue has jobs around your area.

Also, if you find a career that pays well, you can always use that salary to support your other hobbies/interests :)

Best,
Herman

I definitely agree as well. You are on the right. You need to feel passion so it will help you to get a good start in your job . Personality goes in the same line. Growth is important for the future. You don't want to spend 4 years in college to find out there are no jobs in that field. Finally, salary. Sadly this is important. After all, we all got bills to pay.
In any case, don't confuse your career with a hobby. A hobby is definitely something you enjoy and you feel you are a good fit for it. A career will help you grow as a professional and will provide you shelter
