You’re a bright eyed college graduate, fresh out of school and ready to take on the world. The last several years of your life have been wrought with exams, studying, and all night parties (to study, I’m sure). The first job that you get out of college won’t be the one you retire from, and there’s good reason for that.
Most people have no idea what they want to do with their life. They go to school because everyone tells them that it’s a good idea, yet they don’t know why they are there or if what they’re taking is the right program for them. They graduate, their degree in hand, and they still have no idea what they’re supposed to do with life.
Unfortunately, there is little to guide students in the direction of their future career. Most students don’t actually know what they want to do because no one tells them what they could do, or what they’d be good at. Sure, you can take tests and personality assessments, but that doesn’t dictate for you what you might be good at, or if you’ll even have an interest in it.
The only way you’ll ever truly know is by experience, and you only get experience by getting out there and doing the work. If the job that you’re currently doing isn’t ideal, there is no shame in moving on to the next one. In fact, you should do this several times until you’ve found something that sticks.
Once you’ve found that you’re ahead of 80% of the other graduates, so settle in and start your career.
