Bit late to the punch here but I still wanted to respond. I'm on a similar page as Chris. A one pager is probably your strongest option. Just like your traditional resume, your website should be an additional source to distill information about who you are and what you do. Try not to make it an exact mirror of what your traditional resume is going to have, but make sure the information lines up. Nothing more blasé than a website that is just an exact re-envisioning of someones resume .pdf

Also please have some fun, Show your personality! Remember people hire people, not skills.

LMK if you need help with anything else, always willing to help!

Hey there. 

I'll start off by saying you're 100% not alone in feeling this. MANY MANY people go through this exact scenario or have been through it before. Take relief in knowing you're not actually stuck and you're in a great spot if you're being proactive about this. 

The best advice I can give you right now (in my opinion) is just to explore. It sound cliche and mundane, but the truth of the matter is you don't have to have a 100% answer anytime soon. Most people take a while to truly find their passion, and anyone who has will tell you it took a lot of trail and error. 

As far as finite advice goes, I'd say you're taking a good route. Reaching out to a career counselor is a good step. Consume and digest all the advice people give you but at the end of the day make the decision that feels best for you. Possibly try to find some entry level work in some industries that are interesting to you outside of just pure service industry work. Do a bit of reflection on some of the things you've studied in your past three years in school and pin point that things that genuinely fascinated you. Then from there start looking into how people within that field actually make a living. 

I know a lot of this might sound a bit general, but at the end of the day it'll all be entirely based on you and your interests. Just gotta have the courage the explore some of them.

I couldn't have said it better myself Radley! Seem's we're birds of a feather haha.
