For example, how important is it to you to make a lot of money? How important is it to love your job? How important is it to be in a certain industry? How important is it to you to have upward mobility in your role? How important is it for you to be located in a certain city? How important is it to make a career switch quickly? These are some of the key questions to ask when deciding on choosing a career that you think will be fulfilling.
There's no right or wrong answers to these questions, and your initial answers may change over time. There may be times in your life when it's most important to make a lot of money. There may be other times when you really want to get ahead. And, there may be times when you want to enjoy your job each day. Setting your priorities helps you to know where to begin.
Once you have your priorities laid out, you can start to sort through your options. Create a list of your skills and talent. Look at jobs you've done in the past. Also, consider your side hustles or hobbies. It's very likely that you will find that you have more than one option in terms of a happy and fulfilling career. You can also consider asking loved ones – like family members, friends, partners or spouses – about career directions they think might be good for you.
