Allan’s Answer

Finding a career that you really enjoy will increase your percentage of success and achievement in that field. Find a career that utilizes your strengths. You will be spending a lot of time at work so picking a career that is very rewarding to you and others . Getting specialized training a degree or certificate makes your career harder for other people to enter. Also pick a career that will be needed now and for the future. Also if you are getting a college degree in Business or getting a degree to be a Science teacher there are very different. A Business degree is very broad and finding a job means that your career path is still wide open to what you be doing for your career. While getting a degree that is specialized like a Science teacher your options are limited but you are much closer in defining your working career. Remember be realistic with yourself and strife to be challenged to get what you want. For example if you wanted to be a professional Baseball player and you could never hit a curve ball then you probably are not going to drafted by a Major League baseball team. So choosing a career in Sports Management but be a better choice. So follow your interests and investigate your career opportunities in the field that you are choosing.

Hi Silvia! Having a career for me personally is very fulfilling. I think there is an important distinction between having a job and having a career. A career allows you to develop both personally and professionally. I personally have loved my career trajectory so far and look forward to seeing how I advance in the years to come. Pick a career path that you are passionate about! It's okay if you don't know right away. I went to college and even got my master's in a field I ended up switching out of because the lack of career growth and high rates of burnout. I'm very happy I made the career switch and am much happier in my current role and the growth it can give me as I grow and learn. Hope this helps and wishing you the best!

We all have many roles in life. Some of mine include: mom, wife, neighbour, friend, and colleague - in each role there are things I give and things I receive that can't necessarily be obtained from the other roles.

"Career" is typically where you have a role as colleague, and one of the few roles where you receive money for your effort. Like another reply to this question, to me, a career is a job (i.e., gives you money for your contributions), but it is a job with additional benefits including sense of purpose, community, and personal satisfaction. Although other roles can also give those things, there is a specific purpose, community, and personal satisfaction filled by a career that differs from other roles (just as they differ between the roles of mom and friend).

Shruti’s Answer

Career gives you direction and purpose in life. It helps you help others and make this world a better and happier place to live in. Without career once could get restless and under confident.
Success (big or small) or any sense of achievement brings you a lot of self confidence, independence and rewarding things.
In order to enjoy you also need to work hard else there is no value of enjoyment. Enjoyment and hard work go hand in hand, there is no awareness of one without the other.

Dear Silvia,

I believe that having a career is the most important thing about life. You will be fulfilling your dreams and doing what you love. This makes life more useful for you and also for others because you will be giving others in some way. For me personally, a career makes me motivated to do more in life and to keep going. You might be a little confused or worried about having a career or in what field exactly but that is okay. I changed my major at least three times my freshman year in college until I found what I love to do the most. It will take time but you will get there.

Hi Silvia,

Nice questions.

According to me career gives you purpose, passion and interest. The person who plans a career, usually is motivated to learn more, to contribute more. These people take both a short and long term view of a job and look at what they can learn and how they can grow in each situation.

Career planning is necessary to guide us towards a proper and safer future.

Career is a very important thing in one's life. Whatever career path you choose to follow, it will impact your life greatly.

All the Best!!
