Points to ponder on career decision

with one comment

A good career is one that PAYS WELL, in which you have a broad choice of full-time and part-time jobs, in which there is some sort of BARRIER TO ENTRY so that you won’t have to compete with a lot of OTHER APPLICANTS, in which there are good jobs in every part of the country and internationally, and in which you can enjoy job security in middle age and not be driven out by young people willing to work 100 hours per week.

There are many aspects to a job other than what exactly you occupy your mind with. Here’s a partial list:

* work mostly collaboratively?
* meet a lot of new people?
* work mostly with competent people?
* work mostly with interesting people?
* able to see the direct impact of one’s work?
* able to teach others?
* get to travel to interesting places on a regular basis?
* able to leave work behind when you go home at the end of the day? (or do you have to prepare, read email, answer phone calls, etc. when at home?)
* able to take long blocks of time off for exotic travel?
* cog in a large bureaucracy?
* satisfaction of being the boss?
* value to employers increases with age and experience?
* able to move to any part of the country and find a similar job? (or effectively stuck in one or two cities where an industry is concentrated)
