Purpose or career

man with puzzle that spells career

Purpose or career can be described as liking what you do, and being motivated to work toward and achieve your goals.

Having personal fulfillment in a career or purpose applies to every stage in life. Finding the right fit often takes reflection, evaluation, and a willingness to go out of your comfort zone.

Be sure that you are asking the right questions, challenging your own assumptions, and striving in the direction that is right for YOU. Once you know the direction, then take action.

For Employees, this could mean taking on a new role, learning a new skill, or expanding on your current skillset. 

For Students, a great place to start is the Center for Career and Professional Development (CCPD) website, offering videos and webinars to improve on your interviewing skills, learn to negotiate an offer, or visit the career services department of your college or school:
