Okay, so I'm sure I'm not the only one who is having this issue, nor am I the first person to ask for advice on the topic... but I'm feeling so lost! What should I do?!
I received my Bachelor's degree in psychology a little over four years ago. A few months after I graduated, I got a job at the front desk of a behavioral health facility. Great opportunity right? A foot in the door at a good company, related to my degree, opening doors to the behavioral health word, new contacts, etc. It's been four years and I am BURNT OUT. I do not need a degree for this job, I'm not using it. I am great at this job, but I'm tired and underpaid. The company and the higher ups seem to have no idea what they are doing, and it seems as though they do not care for their employees as much as they care about making lots of money. In addition, I don't really get along with my boss; there are so many things he could be doing to support us, but he just doesn't.
At this point, all I know is that I no longer want to be here doing what I'm doing. The thing is, I have no idea what I would rather be doing. I don't even know if I want to stay in this field anymore... I'm not sure if it's for me. I have taken career quizzes and done lots of research over the years, but still nothing has popped out at me. People always ask me what my passions are, what my dream job is, and I just have no idea what to say to them! Isn't that terrible!? I guess I just don't know myself well??
I'm ready to make a change. I'm ready to figure out my dream job. I'm ready to make a move. How do I figure out where to go and what to do? Has anyone else had this quarter life crisis with a successful outcome? I'd love to hear your experiences, advice, etc.!!
