The idea of a ‘dream job’ is something that is pushed into our minds from the day we hit kindergarten. We are often asked “what do you want to be when you grow up?”, a question that by the time you reach 18 turns into one of expectation. By the time we reach university everybody wants to constantly know “what do you want to do with your degree?” or “where do you see yourself when you finish uni?”. These questions are perfectly normal, but they place on us an expectation that we must have it all figured out from day one. It also fosters false thoughts that we may walk out of university and straight into our dream position or ‘end goal’.
