Career Objectives and the Impact of Changing Work Requirements
5 pages in length. Determining one's future career endeavors is no longer as easy as merely deciding what path would like to pursue. In these contemporary times, there are a number of variables that help -- and also hinder -- a person's ultimate career choice, particularly with regard to issues from one's past. The present and future also hold other considerations that must be addressed when attempting to discern which direction to head for career fulfillment. Another primary factor in determining a career path is whether or not the chosen vocation will provide sufficient mental and physical stimulation for years to come. To put forth considerable time, effort and money into obtaining a particular career goal, only to find that it was not truly the correct path to follow, is an issue that must be given significant consideration. The writer discusses how attending to one's career requirements early on will help to solidify both the desire and the fruition of such a quest. Bibliography lists 2 sources.
