Greetings! Welcome to my blog. I am a twenty-something man that is attempting to determine what I would like to do with for my career. Let me explain my situation a little more, so you can understand what is motivating me.
I have been a student as long as I can remember. Literally! My day care when I was a child was at a university where college students helped to run the day care and teach preschool. My love for being a student has not stopped. (According to the StrengthsFinder test, one of my top strengths is "Learner") On the contrary, I have struggled to find the same love for the jobs I have had.
In college I got a Civil Engineering degree and worked for three semesters at engineering firms while still in school. I spent the two years after college doing service. I was a 6th-8th grade math teacher in a small Catholic school. Even though I love math, I have since learned that I am in the vast minority. (I know. Shocker, right?!?!)
I loved my experience as an engineer; I loved being a teacher; and I have always loved being a student. However, I am still searching for what exactly I should do in my career now that I am no longer a classroom student. Let's be honest, we are all students in a class call life!
This blog will hopefully communicate my journey in trying to find my "dream job" - the one that requires the unique set of skills that I myself possess. I hope followers can learn from what I have done (or haven't done correctly) as I move through this process.
Also, I encourage you to comment on posts as much as you can. Learning comes in many ways, and I hope to learn as much from you as you can learn from me. I hope you enjoy the ride!
