Why Career Choices Are More Important Than Ever

1) You’ll be happier

A Gallup survey showed that 70% of people are unhappy at their jobs, and only 30% report being happy with their careers. It is more important than ever to find a career path you enjoy doing in today’s world. Your happiness should never come secondary to financial success or anything else for that matter. When you find what you love to do, your life will be so much better.

2) You’ll be more marketable

Companies are always looking for people who have the required experience and those with passion and understanding of what they do. If you can demonstrate this in your resume or interview, then employers will take notice! When you find something that drives you every day to work harder than before, it will be a lot easier to sell yourself and get the job you truly deserve.

3) You’ll make more money

It is no secret that the better you do your job, the higher your income will be. This may not always happen in entry-level positions when you’re just starting out, but it’s very common for people to receive raises and promotions as they move up their career paths. If you know what you want to do early on, you can make choices that will set you up for future success without waiting years before it happens.

4) You’ll be more satisfied

When you love what you do, it will show in your daily life and work ethic. People who make the right career choice enjoy going to their job every day because they know that this is where they’re most fulfilled as a person. If you can find something like this for yourself early on, then there’s no question you’ll be more satisfied with your career.

Carolyn McBeth has always dreamed of owning a farm since she was a child. Carolyn used her enthusiasm to pay for college at Iowa State University, where she majored in Agricultural Business and was named to the Dean's List. Her schooling also gave her the chance to join agricultural fraternities and get more active in the industry. She interned at Pioneer H-Bred International as a Supply Planning and Logistics Professional while in school, and worked for John Deere & Company as a Complete Goods/Aftermarket Coordinator and AMS Technical Representative. These positions led to promotions as a Production Planning Supply Management Specialist and Marketing Product Specialist Representative.

Carolyn followed her goal of starting a small family farm right after graduation. She has been in charge of daily operations and equipment/land acquisition since then. Visit her website at carolynmcbeth.com for additional information!
