I HAVE A FEW QUESTIONS ABOUT THE WORKING WORLD. DURING COLLEGE I THOUGHT I KNEW EXACTLY WHAT I WAS LOOKING FOR IN A CAREER. AS WE ALL KNOW, THINGS IN LIFE TEND TO CHANGE... A LOT! FINDING A BALANCE IN LIFE BETWEEN WORK AND LIFE CAN BE DIFFICULT. I AM GOING TO LIST A FEW QUESTIONS THAT HAVE BEEN EATING AWAY AT ME. IF YOU HAVE ANY INSIGHT OR WORDS OF WISDOM I WOULD LOVE TO KNOW HOW YOU ALL BALANCE WORK AND LIFE.

1) HOW DO YOU KNOW WHAT KIND OF JOB/CAREER IS RIGHT FOR YOU? I KNOW A LOT OF YOU FREELANCE AND I WOULD LOVE TO DO THAT BUT I FINANCIALLY CANNOT MAKE THAT MOVE AT THIS TIME IN MY LIFE. HOW DO YOU KNOW WHAT TYPE OF DESIGN CAREER IS RIGHT FOR YOU? IS THERE A WAY TO TELL IF A BRANDING AGENCY, MARKETING FIRM, AD AGENCY, ECT. IS THE RIGHT CAREER PATH? AS A DESIGNER IS SEEMS LIKE THERE ARE SO MANY COMPANIES TO WORK FOR. HOW DO YOU WHICH IS THE RIGHT FIT FOR YOU? DO YOU HAVE TO TRY EVERY SINGLE ONE?

2) HOW DO YOU LEAVE YOUR WORK AT HOME? TO OFTEN I FIND MYSELF WORKING LATE AFTER HOURS. I AM ALL FOR WORKING LATE BUT SOMETIMES I STAY AT THE OFFICE WAAAAY TO LATE OR I TURN MY COMPUTER ON WHEN I GET HOME AND KEEP WORKING. WHETHER IT'S ANSWERING EMAILS OR DESIGNING, I JUST FIND IT HARD TO LEAVE MY WORK AT THE OFFICE. I REALLY WANT TO DEDICATE MORE TIME TO THE DESIGN PROJECTS I LOVE LIKE BLOGGING, WEB DESIGN AND BRANDING. I AM STRUGGLING TO FIND A BALANCE.
