emma34 Posted May 7, 2010 Share Posted May 7, 2010 I am 23. Growing up I had a lot of encouragement that I could do whatever I wanted to do (although I always knew my parents wanted me to be a nurse). Either way, I was always told that if I go to university, get a good education, I will inevitably find my dream job that will lead to a passionate life with financial stability. Well, as an adult I find this has been a huge misconception…I had so many choices that I never chose. I got a Psych degree and a “good” government job, but it’s not very stimulating. I work in a small office all day long with minimal human interaction. I find it very lonely, and I really prefer working in a team environment. And the pay is average. Anyway, I still dream of finding that dream career that will consume with interest and passion. I am a workaholic by nature, so this government M-F 8:30-4:30 seems quite foreign to me…(I recently picked up a weekend job at the Human Society – yay!) Do you like your job? What is it? What were some of your best jobs? Any advice? Thanks! Link to comment
