Getting a paycheck is good, but what’s better is getting a paycheck for work you love. Exploring what you want to do begins by asking yourself some important questions:
- What do you enjoy doing?
- What have you been told you’re good at?
- What skills do you know you have?
- What interests you?
- What jobs require those skills and include those interests?
- What do you want to be doing three years from now?
