Still Not Sure What You Want to Be When You Grow Up?

Posted on 30 August 2008

What You Could Do Today

Ask yourself the following:

• In my ideal job, do I want to spend a lot of time with people? With data? With words? With things?

• What sort of environment would I like: home, fancy office, outdoors, university or somewhere else?

• Who do I like to spend time with: artsy types, nerds, jocks, businesspeople, hands-on types or social animals?

Come up with a career that amalgamates many of your answers. Next, search for a book on that career. Visit someone on the job in that career. Does it still feel right? You may have found your career. Congratulations.
