Goals and Objectives
Why decide on a career goal? Does a career goal limit your future?
A career goal helps you focus on what you want to do for a living. A career goal can be a specific job you want or can be a particular field you want to work in.
Rather than limiting your future, a career goal may help you discover career possibilities that you wouldn't have thought of otherwise. There are several job possibilities with any chosen career.
A career goal will also guide you in your search and your training and development of the skills and education you need to begin a career in your desired field.
Generally, a career goal is based on your skills and interests, career possibilities, and job trends.
Once you have chosen a career, think strategically about the steps to accomplish your goal. Understanding and accomplishing your career goal will be a lot easier if you create a career plan that outlines your goals and how you plan on achieving them.
