Before I was diagnosed with cancer, which was this January, I was actively looking to change companies and roles. I had just got done with some coding boot camps and was ready to start into a junior web development position, but I was sidelined. I have since returned to my old company since completing my treatment and am working part-time at the moment. I feel like cancer has shown me how much it can taken away so quickly and would rather pursue something I am passionate about. I would ideally like to enroll back into school for mechanical engineering, but as far as a job is concerned, I would like to look for a position where I can add value to helping people, such as those going through things such as cancer. I would also like to volunteer some of my time as well. I guess my question would be is what I am looking for plausible? I don't feel very passionate at my current job, which is computers and IT.
