Hey, all, it’s been a while since I last posted. I’ve been pretty busy these last few months. Being more social, traveling, and finding myself in my career – kind of.
You see, I’m still unsure as to what I want to do with my life. I don’t even know where to begin. I’m in the process of looking for jobs elsewhere and relocating, the trouble is, do I even like what I’m doing? Am I in the wrong field? I turned 25 (Gasp!) in August, and it annoys me that I haven’t discovered my true “passion” yet.
I’m good at what I do, but reading these job postings leaves me feeling hopeless. For some reason, there are a million door-to-door sales jobs disguised as marketing jobs out there, which is a no for me. Then you have the jobs that I am applying for that want someone who’s SO EXCITED about marketing. Am I SO EXCITED about marketing? I’m not sure.
I have many talents:
I can pitch and write story ideas, edit/shoot video, design, makes sales calls, I understand SEO, what goes into website development, I can optimize for keywords, write blog posts, and I understand basic HTML/CSS. I can do plenty of other things as well, I wear many hats. Maybe I’m not focused enough. Maybe I need to find one talent and really hone in on one specific skill set.
I recently took a Strength Finder test hoping that my results would help me.
Finding my “Top 5” was fun and all, but I still don’t know what job title to type into Google.
I know that I want to work with people, collaborate, be creative, and not sit in front of a screen all day. Finding a job with those traits isn’t easy apparently. And I know, I should take any job before I receive the job I want…blah blah blah. I know
I just want to find ONE thing that maybe I can love and be good at. Is it marketing? I’m not sure. Maybe it’s PR or publicity. Or maybe I should give my thwarted singing career one more go around (eh?). 😉
Whatever it is, I hope I figure things out soon. This whole “being stressed all the time” game isn’t fun anymore.
