Okay so here's the deal, I'm 23 and have been in my current job for almost a full year now, its a graduate job which I am lucky as hell to of gotten considering I dont have a degree, but I dont enjoy my work, its barebly but I dont like/enjoy any part of it, to tell the truth I'm not even all that interested in it lol.
What I would like to know is do any of you have any tips or advice on how to find a job/career thats right for you? I mean I know the usual stuff like "what do you enjoy doing" or "what skill or knowledge do you have that is valuable/profitable" etc
but what I want to know is have any of you ever changed careers completely because it wasnt right for you?
and even if you havent and just chose a career based on how it suited you, what influenced your decisions?
how did you find out what it was? was it your passion?
So basically tips and advice aside, should I try and get another job in this Industry (IT) hoping itl be better/more suited to me than this one?
Or just go with somthing completely different in the hope I'll find somthing I like better ?
I am very confused and would love some advice,
Thank you very much in advance,
Hey, I sympathise with this! Similarly to you, I started a graduate job this year, thinking it was something I wanted to do and quickly found out that it just wasn't for me (70 hour weeks, 6 days a week, doing a job I hated). So I recently took the plunge and quit. I'm now looking for something new. What job are you doing right now and what is it that you hate about it?
