Looking for a career. Want to get back innto school. Need help with major. What would match my personality? Read description.

Looking to get back into school for a degree. I’m an introvert. I would rather work alone than working with people. I do not like science/medical classes. I prefer math over it but I’m not even that bright with math either. I was thinking of looking into data entry, recording, sorting type jobs. I don’t know much about IT but I’m open to that field as well. Please help with career recommendations. Thanks.

  1. Excuse me, but I don’t even know you despite the lengthy description.

    What are you trying to accomplish with that statement?
    And I thought you would understand.:-(
    I do understand. What's there anymore for you to know for you to help me? I am willing to share more. Your first comment confused me. I'm sorry.
    Pick something you are already good at and enjoy. Something that will never feel like work when you are doing it.
    I like playing piano and composing, but I have no fundamental background in it. I picked it up early a a hobby but never did anything further after. Realistically, I wouldn't make much money as a career. I also could have been a cook because I liked that environment. Now I'm tired of it. Don't want to do that again. I've been thinking of going into the administrative clerical area. I looked into Health Information Technology doing medical records and sort. I'm interested because it pays decent and that occupation matches my detail oriented personality. I'm 24. I don't have time for games anymore. I need to choose a career that pays well and something I can like.
  1. You seriously think that is going to tell me what you are going to be good at and want to do.

    What can you AFFORD? College is expensive. Ever consider that?

    Go to a bookstore and look at those self-help books in the career section.

    This is no way to find your life or what is suitable. You could do anything if you are INTERESTED. If you are not? Just getting a degree is not a great idea.

    Oh, and BAD NEWS? School is NEVER like work in the real world. TRUST me.

    That's the reason why I didn't go to college. Too expensive and I didn't know what I wanted to major in. But as I'm getting older I need to do pick up a new field. I feel like college is the only way to get me out of this.
  1. Ah, trade school. Good idea.

    What do you LIKE to do? That should give an indication on the direction to look in.

    That's the thing. I don't know what I like. I like playing piano but I know that path does not lead to a stable career.So now I need to do something I'll at least enjoy that pays decently to survive. But I am in a situation where I don't know what appeals to me.I feel like the only way to find out is to go to college(get in debt). That's what society tells us to do.
