What is Your Overall Career Goal?

Most work days are hectic. We juggle the pace of project life, the rush of being in the technology field and of course, we balance these work demands against personal and family needs, and then at some point we may come to realize years can go by while we navigate just a day at a time.

What are your overall career goals? This year’s theme of the EuroStar conference is the French phrase: “je ne sais pas” or in English, “I don’t know.” Do you know your career goals? Have you paused to think about it? When you look back, what was it you wanted to achieve?

Perhaps it is time to figure out your purpose – what will resolve the “I don’t know” response to your career purpose and goals. Dare to think that your career should have a purpose.

Through personal stories Karen outlines possible answers to this essential question. She’ll share some of her own struggles in her achieving goals. And through sharing her personal journey through thinking and revising her own goals – perhaps you will map out your own goals.

Come listen, ask questions, think and see if you can discover what your career legacy will be.
