Go back to basics:
What subjects did you love most at school?
Do you like working alone or with others?
In an office or out and about?
Mainly with clients or with a team from your own company?
Commerce or Public Sector/Charity?
On your feet or sedentary?
Thinking on your feet or well planned strategies?
Project based/freelance/contract work or something steady?
Employed or self employed?

Then work out what your ideal hours are, what income you need and look for jobs that tick as many of the boxes as possible.

E.g. I'm not a great team player (not sure why but old enough to realise it's not a strength) but love working with other people, so working alone for a client or number of clients is a perfect set up.
