Uncertainty is always around us. For me, the biggest challenges I’ve ever had to face were where to go to college and what to major in. It took me a second time around to figure out, but I did. Now I’m set to graduate in December, and the question I keep getting is, “So what do you want to do when you graduate?” It’s the toughest question of all…and I always answer, “I’m not quite sure. But I’m trying to figure that out as I go along.”
I sometimes feel behind when I hear other people say they know exactly what industry and what company they’re going after. However, I know I’m not alone with my uncertainty. I’m doing the best that I can do – exploring my interests through internships and PRSSA, in addition to reading industry news.
What I’m focusing on now is what my passion is and how that will relate to a job. My troubling thought, however, is what exactly is it that I’m passionate about? What will I wake up doing everyday that will make me happy, that will not feel like a job, and that will serve my purpose in life?
