Ah, I completely forgot to set some context here. So I studied Engineering in college (Computer Science) but by junior year realized that my degree choice wasn't exactly the best. After talking with a few others, I realized that I was one of the few students in the program who felt like they were "swimming against the current" when it came to doing work. I was trying really hard and busting my ass, but never seemed to make progress like others i knew. I was unhappy and didn't want to switch majors and take on more college debt so I stuck out senior year and graduated. I took a summer internship in the field to see maybe if it had just been school, but then realized that the work truly wasn't for me after I got fired for not taking the job seriously any more.
Fast forward to today. I have a much better idea of what I want to do personally speaking (comedic blogging/vlogging), but since I'll need a job to sustain myself, I'm trying to find something that I can actually excel at and enjoy. I also made a thread about "mental masturbation" when it came to job hunting
and I applied to 4 jobs that I thought could work out, but no luck. Looking back, these jobs were primarily Engineering based and it is possible that my lack of confidence in my engineering abilities/lack of interest in the field may have shown through. I was thinking I could suck it up and do it for a couple of years, but now I just feel tired of bullshitting myself.
I guess what I'm trying to say is that I'd like to do aptitude testing to get clear on my strongest natural talents. I'd like to use this information to help me filter out which jobs I will/will not like. I also have to make sure not to put unrealistic assumptions on this test and expect it to hand me a career path out of thin air. I also found an eBook on the JOCRF website about Understanding Your Aptitudes
that seems to break down the different aptitudes they measure. I think I'll read this before committing to pay $675 and see what happens.
Hope this clears up my shitty first post!
