Career $ense

According to the Cambridge dictionary a career is “a job for which you are trained and in which it is possible to advance during your working life, so that you get greater responsibility and earn more money.” The same source states a job is “the regular work that a person does to earn money.”

Now I pose the question: “Do you want a career or a job?” Perhaps the answer is both! In today’s economy, having a degree is the difference in landing the career that you want. You may need to work a job (or two), as you earn your degree. With your responsibilities, how do you reach your goal of a career where you feel invested and stable?

Online advisors can help you in your career quest! Guidance to career profiles and skills assessments may be the tools you need to focus on your future. There are unique career pathways that will fit your personality and goals.

Getting a reality check on your limitations is also an important part of the process, but shouldn’t be a roadblock.

Check out credit courses and continuing education available in the Minnesota State College and University system! The variety is amazing. If you are able to pick a course to help you jump-start your job, your next step may be to choose a program and help your career aspirations. Now is the time! Give advisors a call at 1-800-456-8519.
