There's a really interesting book called "Now, Discover Your Strengths" that helped me think about what I like doing and what I'd be best at. Your local library probably has a few books on careers that you could look through, but you'll really learn the most by finding a job or internship that exposes you to lots of different tasks and people. Don't forget to pick up a copy of a major newspaper such as the New York Times or Wall Street Journal. Remember that everyone you read about has a story, and knowing theirs can help you write your own.
