This week we bring you our pressing topic of the moment straight from our reader-controlled discussion boards! This week's question is for students making their way into the professional world or simply for those ultra-multidisciplinary designers looking for more direction. Core77-er pagewithanii asks:
"I have recently become really frustrated because I am 2 months from graduating with a bachelors and I still don't know what I want to do. In the 4.5 years I have spent in the ID program I have not fallen in love with any one project. I may have enjoyed parts of some projects but nothing so much that I knew that's the direction I wanted to head in. I have a job lined up at a small start up firm that does a little bit of everything—the most exciting part of working there is I know there is room to grow and being one of the founding members, I know I will have a say in what steps we take in the future[...]the problem is that I don't know what I want those steps to be. I have an awesome opportunity and I want to make the most of it.
Who here has been unable to find your niche? How did you find one? Or did you?"
