We are all trying to find ourselves on some level. How did the degree turn out?

Things I would recommend looking into:

  • Myer Briggs Personality Test - it shows you careers based on your personality
  • List out your values
  • What are the things you like and dislike about your degree?
  • What are your strengths? - try to apply jobs that match your strengths
  • What are your weaknesses? - try to avoid jobs that do match your weaknesses where possible
  • Speak to the people who have careers in fields you're interested in
  • What are people's impression of you? What career would they immediately think you would like to do once they know about you?
  • What did you wanted to do when you were 5-14?
  • What do your friends say about you?
  • What are your hobbies and interests?
  • What do you like doing?
  • Do you have issues with work-life balance? Where do you see yourself in 5-10 years' time?
  • If money was not an issue, what would you do if you had the choice? Why?
  • If you had to lock yourself in a room and work 60 hours a week, what would you work on?
