I Have a Passion for NOTHING

Dear Experts, I've taken all the tests and can't find a single job I'm excited about. I can't imagine a job I would find interesting and no amount of money will drive me to do work that I hate. How does one turn around their complete distaste for work? Here is how our CAREEREALISM-Approved Experts answered this question on Twitter: Q#367 There is SOMETHING out there for you. What do you like to do in free time? That says a lot. (@beneubanks) Q#367 You sound like a classic "work to live" type. The trick is finding a job you may not love, but don't hate. (@gradversity) Q#367 You've got flawed expectations. Careers are like good spouses: May not like everyday BUT still love them. (@jtodonnell) Q#367 Try going hungry for a while. It can turn around your "complete distaste for work" pretty fast. (@ResumeStrategy) Q#367 U need to contribute as productive member of society. Hate is strong word. Tests won't tell what u like. Venture out. (@DebraWheatman) Q#367 Gr8 question! U CAN & WILL find work u love by IDing/talkg abt what u love 2 do, r proud of now/in past. (@juliaerickson) Q#367 Living indoors and eating regularly always motivated me to work. Even a "perfect" job is not perfect. Try diffrnt things. (@DawnBugni) Q#367 Do u have a passion for anything in life? Hobbies? If not: could u be depressed? Have u worked before and hated it?
