As a Career Coach of some years, I often get clients who are frustrated as they don’t know what they’re going to do workwise. They feel they haven’t got a ‘passion’. They often sense that something is ‘wrong’ as they ought to know what they want to do career-wise. This is even more obvious with those starting out on their careers. They are often asked by well-meaning family or friends ’so what are you going to do now?’ There’s often a huge expectation that they SHOULD know exactly what they want to do. Some people do.
