Career Confusion

I have been struggling lately to work out what career I would like. I have a degree in Criminology and sociology and currently work as an administrator in a relevant field. I have been feeling frustrated in this role and would like to have more interaction with the public. I have applied for a few jobs here and there and a few have rejected me while others have invited me to assessment centres that I am waiting to attend. I know that sounds like a good thing that I have interviews a head of me but today I have hit a wall where I just don’t know what I want to do…I just know that I don’t want to stay in the job that I am in now.

I have never really known what I am good at and what kind of role I would succeed at. I have wanted a new job for a while and after a stressful day I think it has just hit me that the new job is not as close as I would like it to be and in some way feel trapped in my current job. I have always wanted to be someone who knew what they want to do. I am a very passionate and determined person so I know I could achieve the dream if only I had a dream.

I have applied for jobs in different areas in a way to see what comes back in the hope that would help me to realise what I really want but at the moment I feel even more confused.

I have been trying to be as positive as I can for the last few weeks but today I haven’t succeed and just wish this confusing stage would be over. There is nothing more frustrating than being ready for change but now knowing which direction to go in.

I am however a firm believer in everything happens for a reason; so maybe I am being giving this confusing chapter so that eventually I will have more clarity on what I am suppose to do with my life. I just need to be patient a little bit longer and hopefully the right job will come along.

Tomorrow I will try to be a lot more positive as I am lucky to have the job I do.
