thank you for taking my question. What do you see for me?
I am currently unemployed but I am self supporting so I need a job. I am in the dental field and have been applying to a dental school in my area. I would love to work in the university. I have also applied to private practices.
This university also has medical offices in my area and I am going to apply to those also.
What do you see for my career future? Any insight into this matter would be heartfelt. Thanks and God Bless...Nancy Feb.16,1956
You have a very fresh, flowing energy! I feel like you've quit a few jobs because they just didn't suit you (that is not a criticism at all; I don't make judgments -- plus, change is good); I feel like you've sown a lot of wild oats and want to set roots in place somewhere, and a university is a great place to be because you can still learn and expand and grow; if nothing else, you'll always be in a place of forward-action and the freedom that comes with new ideas.
I have two jobs in my head about you; one feels like a business you set up that may not have worked out for the long-term (or a few businesses), but there's still something of real substance you can pull from this -- one of your passions -- and become a real entrepreneur and make that work WHILE you're also doing a full-time job at a university. This feels like a job in metaphysics or that deals with the earth in some way; I see a small mountain, a lot of earth, not much vegetation. Maybe you just need to incorporate the element of earth into your life in certain ways; not sure, but I definitely see you on top of one of these businesses you left behind, and can resurrect.
I do feel wonderful about the university, too, but I don't feel like you should limit yourself to the dental school or its programs; you can use your talents elsewhere and then, through your work there, after some time, you can take further education in either dentistry or another field (as a perk of being an employee, you could get a reduced rate on tuition).
I really do feel you should focus on working in a place of learning, but I'm just not moved to dentistry, in particular. Maybe you can start there, put in a year or so, and transfer -- and whatever you do, don't get discouraged; this is the time to really master one thing, and stick with it -- it will carry you through the rest of your life, because I don't see you as ever "retiring" or doing nothing -- you just keep going! So, focus and master ONE thing, and don't waver. Then, use the creative side of your brain to bring back one of those businesses you started and left behind.
I strongly feel that as long you're open to other programs and don't get hooked into dentistry or consider that your only option, you'll really soar. Good luck!!
