I Have a Passion for NOTHING

7

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?

Q#367 Try going hungry for a while. It can turn around your “complete distaste for work” pretty fast. (@ResumeStrategy)
