    I don't know which career suits me

    I'm a 20 year old ISTJ woman, currently studying communication/media studies (bachelor). Before going to uni, I thought I was interested in this field (not so much the creative side like making radio or TV reports, but more PR or media management). However, by now I've gained a bit more knowledge and talked to many other students, so I noticed a few things:

    1) I don't want to work in an unstructured environment with unexpected tasks and irregular working times.
    2) I absolutely don't want to talk to people all day. I prefer to work on my own.

    Since jobs in the media area usually come with at least one of these downsides, I'm already looking out for masters where I can reposition my career path a bit. For example, I might specialize more in research and/or statistics, which have also been a part of my current studies. The problem is, unlike most ISTJs, I don't really enjoy maths or "pure data" that much. I'm not exactly bad at maths and I've got good grades in school, but I don't think I will be satisfied by any job where I mainly have to work with just numbers and data. Also, technical fields like engineering are literally at the opposite of my interests and strenghts. My favourite school subjects always were German and English and I usually had the best grades of the class (I do know my English is not perfect, though ).
    Of course, I've already searched for typical ISTJ careers that don't involve maths, but neither law nor military etc. is something I'm interested in.
    What I do like is the medical field. I've considered to do a master in public health, since this could build on my communication studies bachelor. But I still feel like I'm tapping in the dark.

    I know, I'm still young and can explore different careers etc., but I'd really appreciate new input to my thoughts.
