Careers play a major role in our lives and in our wellness. Career selection is important for people of all ages. It requires a commitment to branding of oneself. Whether choosing to become a writer, a teacher, a doctor or any other profession, you are establishing a part of your identity that lasts a lifetime. Choose wisely.
Not only are you determining much of the course of your life through your career selection, you will ultimately impact those around you whether it be family, friends, or your community. Even once you have chosen your career path, you must be cognizant of the rapidly changing landscape regardless of your field.
If you’re already many years into your career, you should make preparations now to avoid landing in the next round of layoffs, or be ready to make a necessary job change. What is your Plan B if life brings you a curve ball? Health is not a guarantee. If you happen to find yourself in an unexpected situation with new physical challenges, how will you continue to work and maintain an acceptable level of income?
Career selection holds many contributing factors to better health, overall happiness, and personal fulfillment. Whether you are working with your child to determine a career path or transitioning in your own career, we recommend spending some time with the resources below.
