Thanks for taking the time to read this, and I hope your experience can give me some courage and advice about what to do next about my career.
Basically, I am a 23 year old girl who was born in Shanghai, grown up in Madrid, and completed my degree in Psychology and busines in the United Kingdom. I am a native speaker of Spanish, Chinese Mandarin and English due to my family and educational background. Having graduated from Uni recently, and after working in various industries including social care, forensic psychiatry, translation and interpreting, marketing...etc, throughout the past 5 years, I now feel rather stuck.
Ideally, I'd love to find a job where I will be able to apply my languages, whilst at the same time not completely abandon my degree in psychology. However, I do understand that realistically they are not easy subjects to combine.
Location wise, I'm also rather open as I'm a keen traveller and because I have no family commitments at the time being, I'm by no means tied to any particular place. Because of my languages, I would be willing to work in any English, Spanish and/or Chinese speaking countriy.
At the minute, I have just voluntarily left my last job in Bristol, UK because I felt at the edge of depression and was in need of a break from England. My next job starts in the end of April, but for me it is just a backup position I will turn to when everything else fails. I've now been living in Shanghai for over a month, and I feel it is time to make a decision of whether to return to a secure job but which will not make me happy, or perhaps, risk it and go for something new.
The problem is, I'm so overwhelmed by so much information that's available nowadays and can't figure out where and how to start. Most of my family and friends seem to be convinced that someone like me should have no problem whatsoever in finding an ideal job, but there's a saying in chinese 旁觀者清，當局者迷, meaning that being implicated in a given situation is likely to confuse one's ability to rationalize, and it is therefore a good idea to let others express their opinion.
Therefore, I am now keen on listening to anyone who can give me any advise on how to take my next step.
Thanks again for taking time to read everything, and I'm looking forwards to hear any insight from you.
