Career Confusion :/

I haven’t wrote a blog post for a few weeks so now it feels like I’m a starting again from scratch again. I have been super busy at work and trying to figure out what my next career move should be. As much I like my job it does not fulfil my ambitions and therefore I am looking to branch out and a gain higher position.
I am waiting for a response from interview I recently went to for a training programme that I have been interested in since I finished university. I applied for this same training programme a year ago and didn’t get it so thought I would give it another shot. I decided to apply again as I have worked in a related field for the past year and have managed to gain a lot of experience that would help me in this role. I suppose there was also a certain level of curiosity to see if I could actually get it this time too.
However this time round at the interview there were certain elements that made me question whether this job is the right job for me. I know that there is that part of me that would really enjoy the job but there is also a part of me who wonders if I am just applying for the job because that has been what I have been aiming for since university. The first time I went for the interview I was really excited as the prospect of working for this company but this time round there was a different feeling to the interview and the type of people that were being interviewed was also different…(Stereotypical I know but It just didn’t feel like I fitted in quite as well as before). I have changed a lot and what I enjoy has changed too so I have been spending the last few days trying to figure out exactly what it is that I enjoy so that I can work out whether this career option would be the right choice for me.
It is a scary thought to suddenly change the direction of my career from where I thought it would be going but I don’t want to look back in a few years and regret taking a job that I wasn’t fully sure about..
I’m sure that when I get the response from my interview I will know what my gut reaction will be and I will then be clearer on the decision that I need to make. We never know if we are making the right decision but we just have to go with our gut instincts. I guess for now I will wait for a response from the training programme but also ponder over ideas of what I would really enjoy doing. I feel that this is the time to embrace change and not to over think a career change as in 10 years’ time it could be the best thing that I ever did.
