I'm 26, I have an undergrad degree, econ major, I'm an introvert, and I'm in the US. I've worked a few office jobs, and the total lack of tangible accomplishment plus the long hours they all expect are too much for me. I also don't like being bossed around, but I suppose that's not exclusive to the office environment. Anyway, I have no experience with anything else and no idea where to go from here. I can survive on my savings for a few months without a problem, but without more direction I'll just end up back in the same place a year from now when I quit my next job. Learning a trade sounds appealing, but the physical labor is intimidating and I have no clue where to start. What I'd really like to do is sample different jobs until I find one that doesn't feel like purgatory, but I don't know how plausible that is. So Monkeys, any suggestions about what I should do next?
Curious George: Leaving the Office I'm on the verge of quitting yet another job, and I'm thinking it's time for something totally different. Something (gasp) not even in an office.
