The next step is to research those careers which seem most interesting to you. Schedule some informational interviews to get an insider's perspective on the job. The informational interview communicates the firsthand experiences and impressions of someone close to the occupation, and is directed by your questions.
Spend some of your time researching the needs and benefits of organizations that appear to offer the world. Do they specifically need people in your field? You don't want to find yourself welcomed one day and then laid off six months later. If you can, talk to people who work there to determine whether it's a place you want to work, and if they would really appreciate your particular skills.
It is also helpful to find out the company history, financial stability, products and services, personnel and perhaps some information abut the company culture and how you will fit.
Start a Job Search
And finally, before changing jobs or careers it's important to discover what is, and what isn't, important to you and to follow your dreams... as best you can. Indeed, much of life's happiness is derived from satisfaction and enjoyment in one's work.
