help me find a career I will be happy in?
I am 24 and I really don't know what to do with myself. I am thinking about going back to school to study something that I can find a good job with. A trade that will make me valued in the work place. I have my AA degree in Hotel and Restaurant management but after working in that field for awhile I lost interest in it. I did not learn much from taking Hotel and Restaurant management, I learned more from working at a hotel then I did from the classes. Now with this degree the only jobs I can find are in customer service like a receptionist, mail clerk or telemarketing. All the other jobs I see on craigslist.org you need at least 2 years experience in or a degree or certification. I have worked at a lot of odd jobs mainly in customer service. The only thing with most jobs in this field, is that you are so expendable. There are a thousand other blow Joes that can be put in your place if you mess up, or if someone higher up the totem pole holds a grudge on you. I have been fired for stupid little things in the past. I am a dedicated hard worker and when I feel confident and liked in the work place I do really good. But like I said, I constantly feel nervous about screwing up and being replaced. This is why I need to become valued. Where I feel like I am an essential part of the team, of course better pay would be nice also. I have thought about different careers but I cannot decide what to do. One thing I am into is music production, I am not a very good keyboard player but I have a good ear for music and I do remixes on my computer at home. I spend ALOT of time doing that and I feel like at this age I should be trying to establish a career and start making some money. I dont know if this something I could turn into a career? Or if it is something I should go to school for. I would not mind working in something else for a job and keeping music as a hobby. I just want to find the right path so any suggestions would be appreciated. Thank you!
