I don’t want to be an engineer anymore.

I don’t want to be an engineer anymore.

I graduated a little over a year ago, and have been working ever since. I never liked engineering but I was good at math and a little bit at science so I figured I'd like it eventually. I got a job in marine construction and have worked multiple jobs in the company including design engineer, staff engineer, and project engineer. I do interesting things and am given a good amount responsibility but I could care less. It just doesn't get me going like everyone else here. I also don't want to get stuck in this industry where working 12+ hour days and many saturdays and sundays are the norm.

I recognize I'm still new and it may change but I think I'm ready to stop waiting for me to like anything and go after something I actually like. I have been doing the "right" thing and listening to what is deemed good by society (get a good degree (engineering), get a good paying job w/ good benifits (current job pays me 71+k @23) my whole 18+ year old life and haven't experienced real satisfaction since I was a kid.

What are some examples of getting out of the field and where can I go? I'm honestly interested in law enforcement/Park ranger/ non desk jobs. I'd consider finance if it wasn't standard to work 70+ hour weeks.

I understand I'll be taking a pay cut but at this point I'd do anything to go to a job where I feel like I'm actually doing something I like.
