Is there a quiz you can take online about what your career should be?

I am 31 years old, 10 classes away from my bachelor's degree, and still have no idea what I want to be when I "grow up." I was hoping I could take something that could help me narrow down my choices by helping me figure out ways to implement what I am good at with what I enjoy doing. I don't want to be one of those people who dread going to work every day of their lives. Thanks!

I'm wondering are you really 31 years old. When I was 19, I start to work without a university degree. When I was 25, I start my work in IT field (programmer) and self study to increase my knowledge. Before 25, I work as messenger, computer operator (shift-duties) and data entry clerk. In my experience, I also has no direction at that time and I also got thru' in the job and find out what I'm looking for in my career. So are you still studying now??? How come still studying at 31....

Um, YES, I am 31. I grew up on a farm, so my parents didn't have money to send me to college. I joined the military, spent 7 years serving my country, and am now married with 2 children. I am a Mom, Wife, a Bartender and a Student. I take 2 classes each semester and have been working on it for years. I have had "jobs." I don't want some stupid $10/hr job, when I know that I am an intelligent person, capable of bringing more than that into my family. Unfortunately, not everyone can just walk into a career without an education like you did. My husband is in the military, and we have to move into a new area about every 4 years or so. I'd like to get into a company that can transfer me every time we move, instead of my having to start at the bottom rung everywhere I go. By the way, why would I lie about my age?

I think you can check lots of places...but only your heart can tell you what direction your talents need to go in.

Nothing to worry about. I dont think age should be a bar to consider ur career. Well, u can try and pursue your masters degree and take up some good job after that. Try the field that you are interested in.
