“I know what I don’t want, but I don’t know what I want.”
This is a typical answer I have as I’m trying to explore and decide on what’s next for me in my career. I have been working in the same industry but different role for the past 8 years, I was hoping to change both role and industry but I know it will be difficult. Perhaps I should look into changing industry first, and that brings me to the question of “which industry?”
I really have no idea and I’m lacking of understanding on some other different industries out there. I have been trying to learn more about them through the course of my study, but there are still a fair bit of unknown to me.
Perhaps the easier way is to get rid of those that I don’t want, I know I don’t want to go into consulting, I know I don’t want to involve in finance related industries… perhaps slowly from there I can have a list of potential industries that I can consider to move into. In terms of job function, the same applies.
What’s next? I wonder. Let’s see what the future offers. This is a troubling phase, but once I get over it, hopefully things will eventually get better. Till then.
