Dear PT Students,
You may not know what is possible for your future.
We had residency interviews this past week and I was asked a question that really made me think. “Did what you wanted for your career change from before residency vs. post residency?”
The question resonated with me because residency changed me quite a bit. However, this isn’t a post about doing a residency. This is a post about recognizing that your ideas and your dreams about your career may be unfinished.
I wanted to be a professor directly after residency because I knew I wanted to teach. But it never occurred to me that I could teach continuing education and I never knew that could be even more appealing.
Think of your future career with the possibility that you haven’t been exposed to what you’re truly passionate about lately. If you don’t know anyone in pro sports, you might not think it is possible. If you haven’t heard of anyone creating a business entirely online, you may not realize that could be the path for you.
You’re not done and I hope you realize that your career aspirations aren’t either.
