I am shifting my focus a little more right now towards a new project idea, specifically focused on helping others who are unsure about what they want to do for a living. Whether you are young, old, or anywhere in between, there is no shortage of people who are still wondering if their “calling” is still out there waiting for them.
I started interviewing people to see if I could find mine, I am beginning to wonder if interviewing people to learn from them is my calling (I never would have guessed!). But, I am going to keep interviewing people and I don’t just want to ask them my questions, I want to ask them yours as well.
So, if you could ask any question to someone in a field of work you are interested in or curious about, what would it be?
Some examples to get you thinking:
Q) What is a typical day like in your field of work?
Q) What are the best and worst parts of your job?
Q) What is a little known fact, perk, quirk or piece of trivia about this job?
Q) What is one thing, whether a task or personality trait or environmental factor, that if I can’t handle it or really don’t like it, this field of work may not be a good fit for me?
Q) How could someone with a disability or part of a minority group work successfully in this field? Are there opportunities for such people?
That should give you some ideas. If you’d like to send in your own (I encourage it), please send them to email@example.com.
