Steps For Planning Your Career

As we finish up our education the big decision is whether we are going to go to a higher education opportunity or if we will decide to enter into the workforce.  Before making this decision, you will want to take some time and really weight your choices.  Here are some career videos for students to look at and consider before making this decision.  When it comes to making a decision about your future, you shouldn’t take it lightly.

Job or career

There are two things that you can do.  You can go looking for a job or you can go and get a career.  A job is a random set or activities that you will do on a daily basis to get money to live on.  Most people will go and find a job because they are not sure what it is they want to do with their lives.  Having a job is great and there is nothing wrong with it, however, there is little growth potential.

A career is a more structured and focused employment opportunity.  When we decide to focus on a career, we are looking at a specific trade to learn about.  A career can be anything from a gardener to a doctor and far beyond.  Focusing on a career is where most people will focus on if they want higher wages and advancement in opportunities and a job where you want to jump around and do different things throughout your life.

Never stop learning

Weather you decide to get a job or go for a career you want to never stop learning.  Every day you will want to try and learn something new.  This doesn’t have to be a book or a course, but it does need to be something of value.  It can be something that advances you further spiritually, mentally or in your career.  If you stop learning you will never achieve your ultimate potential.
