Working as a doctor, lawyer, teacher, carpenter, cashier, veterinary assistant etc
A career includes education, training, and work experience you have obtained throughout your life. Choosing a career can help you select the right education and skills you need to obtain as well as support it.
A successful career should be the one that makes you feel happy while you go to work, that gives an agenda to your life, the one that is enjoyable and interesting, a career with more excitement and fewer stress levels. Getting a promotion. Becoming an expert in your field. Assuming a leadership position. Earning a degree or certificate.
There are several different kinds of career paths available. Below are the 3 main ones:
- Multiple unrelated jobs - Here, you could work as an accountant in a supermarket, a chef in a restaurant and then as a receptionist in a hospital. Because these jobs are completely different from the others, predicting your next position is practically impossible.
- Advancing within an occupation - This is when you are advancing in the same occupation, whether you work for the same company or at a different one. A good example is; if you are working as a sales executive, you could eventually be moved to a marketing position where you could still handle sales issues.
- Advancing in the same industry but not occupation - Staying in the same industry, but not necessarily the same occupation. For example, if your goal is to be a manager at a hotel, you could start out as a night auditor, then move to an assistant manager and eventually manager.
