We used to refer to “career” only in terms of work that you got paid for. Your career path was expected to start at the end of school and progress into something that led to retirement and a nice send off party. Things have finally changed! Your career includes work that you get paid for and the things that you volunteer for, but it’s even more than that.
You don’t need to see a career coach, consultant or counsellor to figure out just what kind of work turns your crank. Your life is about a lot more than just work, isn’t it? Sure you probably work, and if not you might be doing unpaid work. You also have people that are important; spouses, dates, children, parents, friends. Then you have hobbies or interests that you’d like to develop, education you might want to pursue, a community to be a part of, and more.
Developing your career is about managing your life. The real question is, do you know where you’re going, and how you’re going to get there?
