Have you ever had the feeling that you’re meant to be somewhere, meant to do something, but you can’t quite put your finger on where or what that might be?
As I bask in the sunlight of freedom from bar exam prep and begin my transition toward starting my career as a corporate attorney, that feeling hits me every now and again. What am I supposed to be doing? Should I be jumping right into running a social enterprise? Should I be an entrepreneur?
I suppose what I’m trying to illustrate with my own narrative is that even when you have found the career that fills your cup, it doesn’t mean that your soul will stop searching for the career that gives it meaning. It doesn’t mean that you’re confused, or that you’re disloyal to your company. According to CEO and founder of the Muse career platform Kathryn Minshew, “today’s workforce take[s] a much more nuanced view of where they want to work.” We, rightfully, believe that opportunities for growth, education, and work-life balance are necessary for true professional stability and long-term investment.
I’m so incredibly grateful and excited for this next chapter of my life, and the journey of learning and growth upon which I’m about to embark makes all my years of schooling feel even more meaningful.
How about you? Do you feel that call that you can’t pin down at times?
