Career Well-Being

Sep 29, 2021 @ 11:00 am12:00 pm

“Do you like what you do each day? Do you get up each morning excited about going to work or school?  These might be the most basic, yet important, well-being questions we can ask ourselves. Yet only 20% of people can give a strong “yes” in response. At a fundamental level, we all need something to do, and ideally something to look forward to, when we wake up every day. What you spend your time doing each day shapes your identity, whether you are a student, parent, volunteer, retiree, or have a more conventional job. We spend the majority of our waking hours during the week doing something we consider a career, occupation, vocation, or job. When people first meet, they ask each other, “What do you do?” If your answer to that question is something you find fulfilling and meaningful, you are likely thriving in Career Well-Being. This workshop will examine how people tend to underestimate the impact of their career on their overall well-being.”
