I need YOUR help finding a completely new career; my blind brothers and sisters...
HELP ME FIND A NEW CAREER!
I’m going crazy trying to figure out which career I’d enjoy and be good at. I can list some qualities of mine and I hope the fine people on Blind can help me figure it out.
===Career choices I’ve considered===
Possible roles I’ve been considering and why. High TC and fast career progression is my goal:
-Tech Sales (I’m good with people and I have heard the TC is over $200k if you hit your goals. Can anyone confirm?)
-Management Consulting (M/B/B firms which would require me to get an MBA unfortunately. Good role for bullshitters and people with presentation skills. Cool lifestyle with always changing work. Get to dress nice.
-Investment Banking (By far has the worst WLB but exit opportunities are very good and the money as an Associate is like 300k TC)
-Move to Hollywood and take my swing at acting (I’m a pretty good looking guy, though I realize this doesn’t mean shit. Could try and get a big break just like the new Star Wars cast did. Chances very low.)
-Start a Youtube or twitch channel (really over saturated but the personality may help here)
-Some online marketing business using cloaking to make money
===Personal Strengths and Weaknesses===
Strengths: (more + indicates more skill lol)
++++Very outgoing and good with people; can randomly approach anyone. (My biggest strength. I’m very good at this though I fear this alone won’t get me places.
+++Great at bullshitting and also connecting people to each other. Not trying to be arrogant with this one. Just stating the facts.
+++Funny (does this even count? Lol)
++Good at making simple analogies to complex problems; assuming I understand them.
+Creative (hence I’m always dreaming)
——Not good at coding and don’t enjoy it. Feels pointless and frustrating.
——Not driven by roles that are slow paced. I thrive on meritocratic roles that reward you directly based on performance.
——-Don’t enjoy back-office type work; feels empty and meaningless.
Background: (not really too relevant here)
I’m currently an L4 Engineer in Amazon (first job after college with some prior internship experience); it’s a good first stepping stone job but I already know I will strongly dislike coding.
Thanks guys. Feel free to be brutal 😝
