Preface: I'm a student, looking toward being a CPA, but questioning my career choice, money, and work/life in general. What are your thoughts on how your work affects you personality? If you have a boring accounting job, do you become boring? On the flip side, does a boring job actually motivate you to be adventurous and exciting outside of work, craving excitement to offset the dull work environment? What do you do the day you wake up and realize you hate your job? What if that's EVERY morning? What are some good jobs with which one can escape the rat-race or gain some satisfaction? I picture being a police officer, firefighter, nurse, etc. as being emotionally rewarding, moreso than a business related job. Does anyone know a good place to take one of those Job Placement tests, that pick good careers for you? Are they accurate? I'm feeling prettyright now, I hope to start a serious discussion with some words of wisdom. Thanks guysI see/know too many people working jobs they hate to make money to buy things they don't need to try and fill the void caused by dissatisfaction with their life/job/whatever. (quote Fight Club, LOL). Is that how the world works? To sum it all up, I think I'm a passionate, happy person currently. Is the world after college the soul-crushing, numbing machine it can seem to be at times from this side of the fence?
