Winter Break Career Bootcamp: Finding Your Passion


Sometimes,being passionate seems to be the one unifying trait of Wesleyan students. However, being passionate in an academic setting does not always translate to one knowing their passions in a career setting. For those of you who are struggling to find out what step they might want to take next in their careers, Scott Dinsmore has written a guide of 27 questions to ask yourself to help narrow down your passion. Questions include:

1.What makes you happiest in your life? What excites you?

2.What do you do that makes you feel invincible?

3.What do people thank you for?

4.What are you ridiculously good at? What are your precious gifts?

5.Who do you look up to? Who are your mentors? Who inspires you? Why?
