I've been having a rough year where this is concerned (the economy sure hasn't helped) but I'm starting to think that it's an evil game.
That really, most of us won't know what niche we're made for until we've already gone through college, shuffled majors a couple times, graduated, gotten a couple jobs that were all wrong (or partly wrong), and then end up saying "damn, THAT's the major I should've chosen, so I could've gone into THAT field from the very beginning."
Grass is always greener? You'd end up saying that no matter what you chose? Just wondering what your experieces are.
Me, I find that that there are two or three skills I am really good at, but which don't necessarily lend themselves to the majority of jobs that are available out there (programmatic and network system jobs, and of course accounting and sales). So I'm stuck between very enjoyable and low pay (freelancing basically), or good pay with absolutely no interest in the job. Although there ain't much to chose from right now to be honest.
What really pisses me off is I did two semesters of continuing education at $6k per semester a couple years back and for whatever reason have not found a niche that has allowed me to exploit that investment. At the time I was glad that I was expanding my horizons, gaining new skills, etc. Now I'm feeling like I threw the money into the abyss. Sucks.
