Appraisal new hire

Hey I’m 21 and a recent grad of a pretty good school (T20) where I got a liberal arts degree. I wanted to get involved in finance and I personally like real estate, so I took a job (more of an internship but to be converted to a job soon) as a commercial appraiser at a mid-tier company. Im not at the point yet where I’m working off fee or independently on projects, but from what I’ve heard from my boss, the company is good about making sure you always have something in the pipeline. The work life balance is great and I’m fond of the lengths management goes to in order to make me feel welcome, especially in my particular real estate team, since the company operates across multiple sectors of the economy for valuation and real estate is just one of them- other divisions claim their management is not nearly as forgiving. Thing is, my cubicle is adjacent to these investment bankers in the office, and all day I’m just wondering if I’m selling myself short. When I look up the future of real estate appraisal, I see that it is a dying career. The pay schedule isn’t great, and live in a state where a good income is needed to make a barely decent living. Im just wondering…. Should I stick to this career and get licensed? Are the good exit opportunities should I try to leave? If you reading this where me, what would you do? I don’t mean to be sounding pretentious if it comes off like that at all. I’m just thinking towards my future is all.

For context I have a lot of doubters in my family that scoffed at me when I told them I didn’t want to pursue a career in medicine or law. I’m really running to prove them wrong, but finance is broad and I’d be willing to switch to other job function if possible. Not sure if it’s possible, because I’ve already graduated and my degree is not amazing however I have a good gpa from a great college.
