14 months ago, I graduated college. Received my BS in the financial planning program at VT. My plan was to find a job in a fee-only planning firm (because I don't want to sell stuff to make part of my paycheck).
Fast forward to now. I'm working in a planning firm (have been for over two years now). But I don't consider it planning at all. It is investment management. My bosses sell stuff to make money. And I hate it here. I haven't been happy for over a year here, and it is progressively getting worse.
The real problem: I have no idea what I want to do with my life. So it is making this job search thing hard. It also doesn't help that there isn't anything around me hardly. Sure I could look for something so I could relocate somewhere, but I can't for personal reasons. Call me dumb, but that is how it is.
If I could figure out what I wanted to do with my life, that paid well, then I'd be set. Until I figure that out, I'm just applying for jobs and hoping that I'll like it if I get an opportunity.
Why can't being a grown-up be easier so everything would just fall into place??
