People are most happy in careers that take advantage of the best they have to offer in terms of interests, skills, values and preferences. While we can all “survive” a job that does not suit us, survival is all it is: not growth, not pride – those things we seek (in addition to money) in working lives that are satisfying. Self-assessment is the first step in the career planning process.
