When considering your career it is important to explore your interests. What are things you really get excited about and why? What are your likes and dislikes? What subjects do you enjoy? What conversations do you find yourself getting involved in? What types of events do you like to attend? Answers to these questions will help to give you a clearer sense of direction regarding potential occupations that relate to your interests. Use your interests to generate possible career options. For example, use Google to search for "careers with____________" - You fill in the blank (e.g., "Careers with animals).
