How to find a position you like?

I really don't like this job. So much effort put into getting here and reality just hit. 

I say to myself that maybe S&T would be for me, but the truth is that I have no idea of what I would like to do.

Don't get me wrong, I am very grateful to be in this position, but the corporate world (especially in a big bank) and the importance of meaningless details that won't affect the outcome of our work (remembering when to use Calibri or Times New Roman) just isn't for me. 

For anyone who found their current job which they enjoy, how did you do it?

Also, please don't say CEO.

burntwaffles, what's your opinion? Comment below:

Welcome to the club man. Just my opinion but If you wanna do something you actually like - get out of finance. Find me another industry where there is an entire social platform filled with miserable 23 year olds.

We all chose money over other things entering this field. But at some point - ya gotta know when to get out. No rush tho - got a long career ahead of ya
