Remember that within each profession, there are various opportunities tailored to suit different personality types. For instance, if public speaking isn't your forte, you can opt for corporate law, a general counsel position, or government roles outside the Department of Justice, where litigation is the focus. Stay encouraged and explore the possibilities that align with your skills and passions.

Wishing you the best of luck!
Great question. Choosing the right career is definitely important since you plan to do it for the rest of your life. I think a great place to start would be thinking of your classes in school and which ones you enjoy the most, and what you enjoy about those. I once had no idea what my career should be and my starting point was thinking of the classes that I definitely did not see myself pursuing as a career and the ones I enjoyed. After considering this, it was easy or me to rule out sciences and medicine and lean towards accounting.
In addition to classes, you may enjoy or have an interest in exploring deeper, think about your personality and what you would prefer to do every day at work, would you prefer to work with a lot of people, help a lot of people, work alone, etc. Other resources could include taking quizzes that match you to different jobs base on your personality or talking to a career counselor. Once you find something that may interest you reach out to people and ask about their jobs or find a mentor. I wish you all the best!
