  1. I’ll keep searching for a start to my career. More importantly, I’ll keep searching for my identity. When I finally find a job and start a career, I’ll be ecstatic. If I can find my identity first, that will be worth even more.
    best wishes dude.
    your thinking about how you see identity absent of career made for very interesting reading

    • Jacob Tucker says:

      Thank you very much. It’s difficult to do for men because so many people view who a man is as a function of what they do. Anytime you meet someone new or reacquaint with someone you haven’t seen in a while they inevitably ask, “So…what do you do?” That makes it difficult to self-identify apart from one’s career, but I think it’s important to do whether you’re seeking that first big job, are a stay-at-home dad/husband, or have worked your way up to the top of the career ladder.
