A conversation with my sister-in-law sparked the topic for today's post. How many people actually end up working in the field in which they received their college degree?
I don't really remember the actual day it hit me, but I finally got to a point when I realized after college volleyball is not going to pay the bills. I have always liked everything history, science, art, I guess you can already figure out from this blog I don't have a real focus on just one thing. Getting back to the focus of this blog though and the point I am making with this story is that it just amazes me that I ended up actually working in the field of work that I went to school for. I got my degree in communications/journalism with an emphasis in advertising and a minor in marketing. I currently work as an advertising sales representative for b2b magazines. For the record, I also play rec volleyball on Thursday nights. Growing up I always wanted to be a Vet because I am pretty sure I thought they just got to play with animals all day long, but once I realized that wasn't true I really never had a real idea of what I wanted to be when I grow up. Advertising Sales Rep never really crossed my mind.
So here are my questions...
1. Do you work in the field of work you went to school for?
2. Are you happy?
3. Does anyone actually become what they wanted to be when they grow up?
