Have you thought about being a travel agent? How about working on a cruise ship? How about checking out AmeriCorps where the opportunties are endless, but give you a chance to help others in other countries or states. No one can decide what career best fit you except you. Work different jobs and see what makes you happy. I'm a Jane of all trades and have an interesting background, but in all I enjoy helping others. Brainstorm on some things and write it down, good luck.

Have you thought about what you are interested in doing? What can you see yourself doing for the rest of your life, and not receiving any pay? (just a hypothetical question to make sure that you don't factor money into matter, although you want to be wise and choose a career that will pay your bills/loans/payments). Write a list of things that you are interested in doing and/or that you have done that you really enjoy.

I would suggest that you take a free career inventory test that can be found in the career center at your college or online. **If you haven't spoken with a career advisor at either schools, I would suggest that you make an appointment to speak with both.

I normally advise volunteering or interning for free in the area in which you are interested in so that you won't choose a career that you will be disappointed in and/or not satisfied.

* If you have to take a semester off to think about what you want to do, that is another option. However, I normally don't advise this unless you have entered into your 4th year and you are still unsure. The reason to why I don't suggest this option, is because, there is an increased rate of one not finishing what they started. Students get a good paying job and just stop their education. I believe in continuing and finishing what you have started. However, if you have to do this, make sure that you have a goal/outline list of what you will do to make sure that you stay on track to graduation.

Once you have found what you like or what you are possibly interested in, research online career paths that allow you to utilize your skills and what you are interested in.

I hope this helps :)
