Ok fishbowl family - I need advice. Rising senior 1 here and realizing that I genuinely get no joy out of audit. I’m way too stressed and really do not care about accounting and have made it a life goal to never book a journal entry. I want to take the next year to figure out what my dream job is and go for it. Here’s what I like: I love talking to people, mentoring & teaching, organizing, learning. I literally loved everything in college- I was between majoring in accounting or psychology. 1/X

If you want to be a professor, I’d start that path immediately. PhDs take a while, and so does getting tenure at a university

(2/X) How do I figure out what it is I want to do? Would switching to consulting really make anything better? Should I go into HR? Business Development? The ultimate end goal is probably to become a professor, however, I want more real world experience before jumping into academia again. Anyone ever totally switched industries?

Took advantage of the WFH situation and am currently taking pre req classes to get into a physician assistant school while working.
