Finding My Niche

I have taken many different classes in a variety of fields, I am 36 years old and I still cannot focus on what is my true passion. My goal is to make a good salary, but I want a career which I can enjoy to the fullest. How do I find my niche?

Narrowing My Choice

I need help establishing a career with an associate's degree in general studies. I have over 110 college credit hours but I don't know what type of jobs are on the market. My passion is sports but I don't know what career to choose.

Single Parent with Decisions to Make

I am a graduate student in a journalism program which I love. However, I am a single parent and I need a more stable job to provide for my child. I am thinking about teaching and I have just received my substitute teaching certificate to use in January after I finish my current unpaid and curriculum required internship. I'll be finished with school next December and I think journalism is something I can do once I get my finances together and my son is older. I do love journalism and I'll miss it but I can freelance to keep my feet wet. I would prefer to teach at the college level, but I would teach at the high school level if need be.


Am I doing the right thing by changing to education, and is there a way that I can gain a teaching certificate without adding to my loan debt and going back to school? How do I make myself appealing to substitute teaching jobs if I have had minimal interaction with children and no solid "career" type of jobs (seeing I went from undergrad to graduate school)?

Recent BA in Psychology & Music

I am a graduate from a university with a BA in psychology and another in music. I am currently seeking work in the Chicago area, I am open to any entry level human resources positions or really anything interesting with the potential for growth. Are there any specific places in Chicago for recent grads like me that you could suggest I look at?
