They started asking us what we wanted to do when we were in 7th grade. I didn't know then and i still don't know. I always wanted to have kids and build a house and enjoy life. None of that happened.
So you're single and able to move around? Or are you stuck in Ohio for some reason?
You might check with your State employment agency to see if they have any career counseling or aptitude testing. An aptitude test I took years ago when changing careers sure helped with knowing what I'd be suitable for.......................that's no the same as what I can do. I had the education and smarts to work in a bank, as an insurance agent, accountant, etc etc types of indoor "smarts" jobs. But not the aptitude for them.
The test came up with careers such as "back country forest ranger", "cattle rancher/cowpoke", "game warden"......basically outdoor type work in rural areas where most of the work is done alone or in small groups. I liked to fish, so I went back to school and got a degree in "fish". It served me well. Not rich, but I haven't missed many meals lately either and the roof over my head is sound.
Yeah, I was a few years younger than you, but had no attachments like you apparently. So back to the university as a starving student for 4 years, then a couple of years of seasonal work, then a "career" with govt agencies, a decent 401K type deal, a small pension, some Social Security. And I got to live in some really cool rural places, see cool things, work with very cool fishes around the US of A, hunt and fish in a few different States, found the "gal of my dreams" while in school and she's still with me, and now we have a pretty nice life.
Whatever you figure out, whatever you get paid, make sure you take every advantage given such as matching funds from your employer and maximize those the best you can.
Go for what you like first, but pick something with some potential. I don't follow orders so well when the orders come from dummies, and I don't play office politics well either, so becoming a manager never was on my agenda. Probably could have handled an assistant manager job for a few years before retirement, but it didn't turn out that way either. Instead I took a lower down the ladder seasonal position with a LOT of overtime and made as much money as when I was a higher up......................and I enjoyed the crap out of my job most days.
Happiness rules............money follows if you play it right. But even if it doesn't...................at least you're happy.
