Career Finding? Resources Anonymous 17538

No matter what, I'm going to graduate with a CS degree next year. However, while I may get a job in CS right after I graduate, there's no way I can do it forever. I don't care about coding and while the problem solving aspect is interesting to deal with and it is fun to learn about how to deal with challenges efficiently, I find the idea of a CS workplace environment terrifying and draining and I have always been far more interested and skilled in the humanities anyway.

Anyway, I could go on, but my question is, what are some good career finding resources online? I don't mean jobs, I mean personal development, exploration-like resources. I'm too ashamed that I'm too unaware of myself to go to an actual class in real life. Inb4 if I'm this unaware, how would I succeed in the humanities.

shit. let's get out of this hole somehow, anon(s). Are you just saving up money for now while you try to figure out what to do next, or are you just focusing on living every day at a time?

One day at a time, the pay is good and its my only employable skill so I'm comfortable just saving up some money and trying to get my life together, but sitting in front of a computer 8 hours a day programming is destroying my fucking soul.

The scariest part is how quickly the time goes once you get into the work routine, its been 9 months for me and it feels like hardly any time has gone past.

If you never liked the idea of making code forever, you shouldn't have bothered getting into it at all. Being a leech on someone's back is better than some office drone.

I'd just be working some other shitty job but for way less money. I hate being a leech and the job lets me have my own car and apartment and shit like that, it could be worse

I'm OP and was never super into coding, but it's doable and makes a nice check. I also have connections already. I never knew what I wanted to do in high school and I decided better to try my hand at something that makes money and decide I not like it than to not go to college at all. I'd feel disgusting if I were a NEET leech. I already feel like a leech because my parents are generous enough to pay for my tuition. I want to pay them back, honestly. I have a boring, menial government job, but it isn't enough yet for me to live on my own. I still feel guilty for living at home, too.

This is why I want career exploration help. I feel like I have serious issues, especially with insecurity, and they've prevented me (or at least been a distraction) from figuring out what I like in general and what sort of career I should pursue.

oh yeah, I meant to add to what's prevented me from finding out what I like, yada yada: mental illnesses/disorders that I feel consumed by. I'm too ashamed of them and embarrassed to explain which exact ones they are, but I'm trying to transition into just living my life with them instead of them ruling me.

yeah me too anon, i've had a pretty similar path to you in terms of education & career and honestly i've given up on finding a passion or dream job or whatever, it's fucking hard

i wish you the best though, i hope things work out for you

Some people just need the money and stability coding brings.

>>17538
OP, I'm pretty much in the same boat as you. I hate coding and I slightly like my major, but I never cared too much for it. What I plan on doing is working full time and studying part-time for another bachelor's degree. I would jump into a Masters, believe me, I would, but my grades are too shit to make it. Maybe you can do something similar… but I can do this because nothing is holding me back. Perhaps you have external factors that won't let you do what I plan to do.

>paying tuition
You've walked into a world of pain so many others have come to, anon. The psychological problems are something else, on top of that. I just hope you make it out.
