well, typoc, i have actually made it a step forward in my career search (and i am super proud). i am certain that regardless of what i choose to do, i want it to be humanitarian (and environmentally sound would be a bonus). i need to have a reason to get up in the morning and i need to be happy and a humanitarian career is the only way i am going to achieve this.
as an aside i think one day i would like to get trained in being a minister for my spirituality but first i would like to have a career (20s) and probably a family (30s), and i will be very happy being a member and participant in my spiritual community before becoming a leader (i actively do not want to be a minister at this point in my life).
but my question for you all is can you help me brainstorm some humanitarian careers that will still provide me with enough of a salary to live on?
so far i am thinking:
- public health & education
- community leadership (probably not as much $ or job stability as i would prefer)
- physical therapy, nursing, NP/PA (not sure if enough room for creativity)
i enjoy science but i am really more interested in the implementation side of things than the research side. i also enjoy working with people but i do not have the patience to be a counselor.
i do like politics, public policy, and lawmaking. i do not think i would make a very good lawyer but i am enthusiastic about political-level change and would be happy working for or with the government.
i am a very good planner and event organizer (and very, very much enjoy doing that).
i definitely need at least a little bit of room to be creative or i will wither.
thank yoo ♥
