Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!
Alright... first time I've ever done this. Bare with me.
In High school I wanted to be an engineer. I took Co-Op and found out I didnt like where I was headed. That and I didnt have the math skills for the position. I decided that Policing would be a great career and went to University and College and got a BA Honours in Criminal Justice and a College Diploma in Police Foundations.
Next, I applied to forces... they told me to get more muscular and get more experience in a round about way. So I looked for some other related jobs and nothings been tickling my fancy. I started tossing around the idea of joining the military... but then I wasnt sure... Then the Navy and I wasnt sure. Soon enough I started to run out of money and I took a job as a security guard. Pay is above average.. but still not enough, and I never get any Hours.
So, I posted my resume on a website and got a call for an Insurance Sales job. I went to their interviews, and I liked what I saw. I could make a lot of money so long as i worked hard and sold a lot of policies. So, I got that job and I'm training for it now. It should be great money but it has nothing to do with my education.
I'm also in the application process for a Border Guard position and I dont know if i want it.
So, my question to you is if any of your have gone though this... and if so, do you have any advice? I have no idea what my career goals are. I have no what I want to do, be or become involved with. I'm essentially adrift in a sea of career possibilities.
TL;DR I dont know what to do with my life, education or anything. Should I ditch my education and go with the Big Bucks sales oportunity? Try and get the job in the Border Guard where I will make less money but it will be related to my education? I dont know what to do.
