Now that you have your business degree or diploma, have you considered where you'd like to work. It's one thing to narrow down a specific industry or sector, and another thing to drill down even further into specific niche areas. But there are so many other things to consider when looking for an appropriate work environment.
If you're the kind of person who thrives on adrenaline-pumping deadlines and decibel shattering commotion, you probably wouldn't be happy working in a library. On the other hand, you may be the kind of person who can sit in solitude for hours, strategizing, analyzing, or working on a database of information.
It's important to understand the workplace atmosphere and culture that's going to fit your needs and personality. Some people work best in solitude while others thrive as leaders in large group settings. There are always going to be challenging workplace situations that you're not comfortable with. That's just part of being a professional adult in the workforce. How you work on a regular, day-to-day basis, is going to have significant impact on your physical and mental health.
Not feeling well suited to your job could culminate in extended stress/sick leave, depression, anxiety, and physical complaints directly related to stress including headaches, digestion problems, insomnia, weight loss, weight gain, etc.
Do yourself a favor, make sure that crisp new diploma takes you on the career path that works for you.
