Reflect, analyze, and explore

Before you jump right into applying for jobs, take the time to explore your career options.

According to the American Time Use Survey, employed persons aged 25 to 54 with children spent approximately 39 percent of their waking time on work and work-related activities. To put that into perspective, consider this: if you dislike your job, this means you spend well more than one-third of your awake time at a place you don’t like, with people you don’t like, doing things you don’t like. How does that make you feel? The best career choices are ones that match your values, interests, and skills.
