Advice for a 25 yr old DESPERATELY trying to figure out which career field to go into???
The main issue, for me, is that I am interested in several career fields, but I'm not super drawn or passionate about one in particular. I could picture myself fulfilling several very different roles. Some include: criminal defense lawyer, criminologist, NICU nurse, clinical ethicist, PR specialist, event planner, restaurant/cafe owner.
How do people decide what they want to be when they "grow up"? How is it that almost everyone I know has wanted to be something specific since they were little? Is the effort, time, and money to change careers worth it and the best option right now during a pandemic??
I have taken countless career and personality quizzes hoping to gain some clarity. I hoped I would have an "a-ha" moment where I saw a career match and got a feeling that this is what I'm supposed to be doing with my life. I'm beginning to feel more defeated and overwhelmed the more time I spend on this. I'm anxious that I'll have to settle again on a job that I don't enjoy and just look forward to retirement like my parents are.
ANY reassurance, advice, or suggestions is much appreciated!!
