I just finished my 1st year of grad school and I no longer thing this career fits me. I have poured all my resources into grad school and now am at a loss for what to do next.
Have an Answer?
I am sorry to hear that after 1 full year of Grad School that you are no longer interested in that career. But, I would not fret or give up. What you need to do now is sit back, think and pray about it. Think about some of the things you really enjoy doing in life and/or would like to try to do in your life. If possible, narrow your choices down to like two (2) or three (3) things. Once you have narrowed them down, do some internet research on the topics and/or network with people that are in those fields. When you do both research and networking, it may help you see things clearer then you did before. Eventually, you will realize what it is you want to do for the rest of your life. It just takes time and it is different for everybody. I hope this helps!
First step: Take a minimum 5 interest tests online to fit yourself into a potential category of career.
Second step:Look in the gargantuan books at Barnes and Nobles or Borders or Hastings and determine what careers in that particular field interest you.
Third step:When you've picked a max of 5 careers you've found interest in have a meeting with individuals with this career, if that is possible.
