I would recommend you engage in a self-discovery journey :)
Read books on success. Take assessments to find out your values and personality are. Myers-Briggs will give you an idea of what type of careers you might be good at depending on your personality.
Read and take the Strengths Finder 2.0 assessment.
Look within and make a list of all your areas of interest/passions - the things you could door actually do for free/fun... then look for a common theme. Where can you apply what you like to bring value to others in the market place?
Hope that helps.
I would tell you to find out what types of things you enjoy doing and to research careers that have some of the things you are interested in doing. Also, you can ask about internships into different fields. It is important you go into a field you are interested in doing. Good Luck

What are you goals? Your goals may change and thus your choices in careers which is perfectly okay. Where do you want to be in 10 years?
Go with your passion! One only lives once. Try and find a career you enjoy waking up in the morning to, my advise.
What are your hobbies? What do you like to do? You could go back to school to realize what you want to do. At a Jr. College, for example, you can take courses in what you might find to be of interest to you. Thanks! Chandra

My interests are the natural world, animals, pets, aide to children using art as a way to espress temselves. Perhaps children with learning disorders or adults with special needs.
I love to assemble things. I have always been very dexterous and have very good hand/eye co-ordination.. I can type pretty fast and I was thinking perhaps design magazine pages or fliers. I also am good at creating logos. I though that maybe taking a graphic arts program would give me more choices and also be more realistic in this high tech, high advertisement high tech world we live in.
Hi I usually first suggest for my students to compile a list one with possible career paths that interest them, another list or category on why they are interested in those areas. Then research specific sites such as bls.gov, salary.com and others to shed some light into what specific requirements are for each potential position. Next seek job descriptions of potential companies. Then set up informational interviews with professionals in those areas to see how they were able to get those positions. Next check to make sure that the degrees/certifications line up with your professional and personal goals that you may have set for yourself.
