I don't have any goals and I'm not interested in any careers. I don't know what to do. I do all sciences for A-level and i applied for civil engineering at uni because my parents told me to but now I have no idea about what i want. I'm cancelling an interview i have for an apprenticeship which is tomorrow. I applied for an engineering/ tech one even though im not interested because I've gotten used to only considering jobs that pay lots. I have no hobbies either. I don't know what to do about my future

maybe you're restricting yourself to scientific degrees only?

What do you care about? What would get you out of bed in a morning, every morning?

A career can feel like a very nebulous thing but many people feel they need a purpose or direction - it seems to be in our nature as humans. And that purpose or direction can arise from our interests and passions. Or get fulfilled in our work

Most folks have to make money to live one way or another - but some folks are happy just to do something that makes money - no career, no work ambitions - and thats okay too

FWIW Scheins career drivers can be an interesting diagnostic if you can access it
