    Heres some backstory about yours truly. After graduating from high school, I had no clue what I wanted to do. I took a year off, did a bunch of part-time gigs, then came across a newspaper ad that caught my eye. Become an EXTRA on movie sets! it said. I figured, why not? I spent the next year or two working as an ex-tra on film and television sets, then (through some networking) found work as an assistant video editor for a year, and then as a lighting techni-cian for a year. The 12 to 16 hour days were rough, but the money, the people, and the job, were amazing. I thought Id found my calling.

    But alas, three years in and the bot-tom fell out of the film industry. A few months later, I found myself heading to university still as clueless about what I wanted to do going in as I was when I graduated from high school. In the end, I graduated with an honours in human resource management.

    An HR degree? you say. How the hell are you a magazine editor then?

    Funny you should ask! You see, Ive always had a bit of a penchant for writing. I started to take it seriously af-ter my grade 12 creative writing class; became hardcore while I wrote my first novel between the ages of 18 to 22; got burnt out after my two book deals fell through; got back on the wagon reluctantly by writing for my university newspaper; got my groove back completely by founding the Ar-bitrage Magazine in my senior year; used my school newspaper and maga-zine experience to land a government PR job following graduation; and finally used all that experience to get my current gig: editor of Jobpostings Magazine and G2G. Whew, that was a mouthful.

    So there you have it. When it comes to figuring out what you want to do, think about what interests or hobbies

    you naturally gravitate to. You know, the stuff you study or practice even when youre not paid to do so. For me, it was writing, and it opened many wonderful doors for my career. But what if that passion you want to pur-sue isnt supported by your parents?
