    Well, that is a very difficult question to answer especially since everyone has there own ambitions and interests.  Instead of answering your question, I would suggest you read "What Color is Your Parachute?" by Richard N. Bolles.  It is a relatively quick read and will hopefully allow you to answer your own question. ​  Good Luck.

    Dear Kristen

    There is two options as references there are dynamic or static working environment, I think if some person need to expand their knowledge continuously it will be better if they are join ‘dynamic’ the working roles for dynamic is like i.e consulting, designer, contractor/EPC company. If they are prefer to ‘static’ (it is very recommended if they has been have a family) it will be better if join company position.

    However, it’s depend on each persons goals and preferences.
