Exploring Interests

Imagine doing something you love and getting paid for it too!!  Sound too good to be true?  It IS possible. Interests are the things we like to do.  People are drawn to or enjoy certain physical and mental activities and experiences.  These are important clues about what elements/qualities you desire in a career, since most people who enjoy their work have some intrinsic interest in the activities they must perform.
