Making the Most Out of Your Career

The difference between a job and a career often has a lot to do with your own attitude and expectations. If you’re simply looking for a steady income, and you’re not concerned where your work will lead you, you may be satisfied with a job that supports your lifestyle but doesn’t necessarily lead to new opportunities or advancement. If you have pursued a specific academic path, or have long-term goals that include career advancement, it is important to seek out positions that provide the experience you need to pursue future opportunities in your field. 

To enjoy the many waking hours you spend at work, it helps to love what you do and appreciate the goals of your employer. Finding your creative flow and sparking innovative juices are important, as is cooperating in team spirit. Herein, how to find joy, balance, and a strong sense of purpose in your work. 

What It Takes

The more you know about yourself, the easier it will be for you to choose and prepare for a well-matched career. In addition to getting the right training or education, think about your values, and what is important to you. For instance, do you value creativity or work environment over financial success? Do you want a career that provides many travel opportunities or one that allows you to spend a lot of time with your family? To be happy in your career, your values and priorities must line up as closely as possible with the requirements of your job.
