Besides becoming clergy?
I needed to tell Our Lord, "take all of my life", and really, really mean it. Not that I'm perfect--far, far from it. But it was a no looking back situation at that point when I did that. I didn't ever want a life without Christ at that point no matter what that meant. I hope I'm not being too cryptic. ETA: at this point, I trust He will take me through the narrow gate. I can't get there myself.

Maybe you could enter religious life.

Did you hear God call you?

I have no idea what my vocation is. 

I enjoy my work and don't feel called to marriage, but I don't feel called to the Priesthood, either. 

I'm 35 years old. At some point, I have to make a choice Smile

How will I know for sure? Will I ever?
The fact that you're asking, is a good sign. It's an ongoing process. Attend church, read Catholic materials, pray, go to adoration, etc as much as possible.
Consecrate yourself to Jesus through Mary.
