“So, what do you do?” It’s the world’s most dreaded question. Few people like to answer it, but everyone asks it. When it is asked you expect some boring answer or pre-recorded pitch. Nobody really listens.
If you like answering it, then you’re either 1. doing what you love or 2. doing what everyone else would love to do even though you don’t like it. If you don’t like answering it, then you probably either 1. hate what you do and don’t know how you ended up there (i.e. underemployed) 2. love what you do, but don’t think other people value it, or 3. are in transition looking for your next move (i.e. unemployed).
