What’s My Industry?

Question

I’m trying to build a list of target companies, how do I figure out what industry I’m after? I know my locations, I know my roles. I’m seriously not picky on industry except for government, oil & gas or health care are a big NO! Gov & health care is a been there, done that, have the scars. Oil & gas I see as killing the planet and don’t want to go there.

So what industry am I looking at?

I’m very interested in technical writing help documents for software… is that startups, information technology, or what would I look for?

I’m interested in using my Excel skills for data analysis but again what industry?

I could even use my website development skills in this somehow. What industry do I target there?

Could I combine the target jobs?

What would I look for? How would I find it?

Things I love:

  • Computer software
  • Writing
  • Cars (but I'm picky... Mustangs, Teslas and classics from before I was born!)
  • Rockets (but I have NO knowledge of what makes them really tick I love watching them take off)
  • Photography (landscapes and animals, I'm amateur at best!)
  • Teaching computer skills
  • Writing Procedures

These last few believe it or not I’ve already tried to make a living from and would dearly love to do so again but know that the market is too small and too specialized to make a good business for me.

  • Sewing
  • Crafts
  • Pattern Drafting
  • Dolls

For years I’ve tried to find ways to combine my skills I love with my hobbies and other things I love. At this point I can live with just using the skills I love most daily and keep the hobbies as hobbies! That said I still need ideas for industries… without that I’ll still have problems finding “Top 10 Companies in XYZ Industry to work for” even if they are in my location or offer remote jobs or relocation to Seattle I still have to find a way to build a list. I have two local, a remote and a Seattle company… I need more on my list!
