Just like the continuously changing tides, our career paths ebb and flow in a similar form—ever changing with certain fluidity. Many who set out after college or trade school had a specific vision of what they wanted their careers to look like, but ended up in a completely different industry. Maybe you really did mean to use that history degree to teach at a community college, but now are an accounting director. Or better yet, maybe you achieved an MBA in hopes of climbing the corporate ladder, yet instead, are living your dream as a small business owner. As John Lennon once said, “Life is what happens to you while you’re busy making other plans.”
Life rarely turns out the way we plan, and careers are definitely in the same boat. So, the Refresh Leadership team wants to know how your career path is different from when you began. Let us know by voting in our monthly poll!
