This has probably been asked many a time, but I'm kind of at a cross roads right now, and wanted to see where others like me were at. So I am now into my second job out of college. I started in engineering and moved to marketing, and neither quite satisfy me. There were too many mundane details of the first one, and I don't have the initiative, people skills, or patience for the second. Basically, I don't see the point of either job. They don't make a difference for anything. I do my job well, and the company gets more money. But that is NOT exciting to me. Like most INFP's, I want to do something that I am happy to come to work to everyday.
On the contrary, I have been told that I should be happy with what I have got: steady income, good company. But money just doesn't excite me, and goals of improving profitability are not motivating to me. I don't make a difference in anyone's lives. Likewise, I have been told that I should find other avenues outside of work to find that happy medium. But, I still feel 8-9 hours a day in one place should be enjoyable if you are going to do it everyday.
My dream job would involve lots of free time, very little oversight, and time for creativity. Photography would be amazing, but I don't know how to get started (nor make enough money to get by).
So what jobs are you doing? Are you happy with it? Did you always know you wanted to do this particular job?
