Figuring out what you don’t want your career to be!

LegitCPTips-Job-You-Dont-Want-Blog

As you pave through your college years, and  gain professional experiences, you start to narrow down things you have enjoyed, but don’t want to pursue as your career.

Many find the career they thought they wanted to pursue, is just the opposite of their expectations. This can be frustrating, but just know there is something else out there that fulfills your original expectation!

“Most of you won’t start out in your desired field. What’s more, the field you think you desire might change as you get older and your interests and priorities shift. It’s important to remember that figuring out what you don’t want is as critical as figuring out what you do want. Every side trip off your imagined “path” is just another learning experience that will help refine what it is that makes you happy — professionally and personally.”
