“If you do what you love, you won’t work a day in your life.” The clichéd nature of this quote makes it difficult to accredit it to just one person. Motivational speakers, high school counselors, and celebrities have all said it in one way or another.

The adage is presented as an antidote to the stinging poison of capitalism, a resolution to the rage that springs from acknowledging that we will have to work for decades to come.

The logical reasoning behind this statement is flawed, based on the assumption that everyone likes something. The idea that everyone will grow into passionate individuals is unfounded.

Julia Wuench Express how people are, “in constant flux, and that means our passions probably will be too.” At one moment, we can take a liking to something, at another, we can be indifferent to it.

In her book, “The Trouble With Passion: How Searching for Fulfillment at Work Fosters Inequality,” sociologist Erin Cech challenges the “passion principle”: the idea that you should pursue passion in your career before compensation fairness or job security.

The history books don’t tell us of a primitive America that attracted migrants with a rhetoric of love for one’s work, but rather with a promise of stability. Jobs were seen as a means of economic provision, not as markers of identity aligned with personal passions.

Even in the fight against the exclusion of women from the labor market, their argument was not that they were prevented from pursuing their passion. Instead, this tenet of the women’s rights movement was a pursuit of financial independence.

From supporting families to severing financial ties with unwanted husbands, the benefits of compensation were the fulfilling aspects of the job.

The last decades of the 20th century gave way to self-expression as the main motivator for employment. The idea that careers could reflect our personalities has become more appealing at the turn of the 21st century.

In his commencement speech at Stanford University in 2005, then-Apple CEO Steve Jobs said“The only way to do great work is to love what you do. If you haven’t found it yet, keep looking. Don’t settle.”

Ironically, the majority of global workers consist of those who are not fully fulfilled by their respective jobs. Yet, these people do a great job simply completing the tasks assigned to them. Effective work is not exclusively done by passionate people.

Jobs’ choice to say this to an audience of college graduates shows the privilege students have of choosing a field of study they can possibly enjoy. Even then, Jobs overlooked the likely realities of some graduates who listened to his speech.

First-generation, low-income college students, for example, are likely more concerned with earning a living wage from their degrees. Higher education, for these students, is an opportunity that can alleviate economic hardship. In their case, passion is less important than payment.

America’s cultural zeitgeist is dominated by success stories that suggest that unerring success follows the pursuit of passion. The fact that some lack the social or economic stamina to pursue a passion – if they even have one – is conveniently overlooked.

Because work often consumes our lives, we are advised to make it profitable by pursuing what interests us. Cech rejects this and tells readers that it is possible to live a happy and fulfilling life beyond their job. She said to “diversify your meaning production portfolio”.

It would do us good to re-adopt the mentality “a job is a job” because it allows us to perceive occupations as conduits to personal fulfillment. NPR’s Ruth Tam puts it like this: “Instead of drawing all your passion from one place, ask yourself: what are the things that excite me outside of paid work?”

Tam’s question is incredibly helpful for those without a categorical passion. Although some people may not feel very attached to a singular topic, they may have an easier time naming what they are passionate about.

Maybe you are a person who wants to travel every year. Maybe you are a person who wants children in the future. Maybe you want to support your parents’ health expenses. Maybe you want to attend games of your favorite sports team frequently. All of these reasons, unrelated to passion, can help you decide which career path is right for you.

This mindset also makes individuals less likely to be exploited by their employers. Cech’s research found that many employers prefer to hire passionate people because they are more likely to “get more work done without demanding a raise.”

While this cliché continues to land on the pages of self-help books and spoken into microphones at graduation ceremonies, it’s best to prioritize what we want to accomplish through our work.

The workplace doesn’t need to be the epicenter of our happiness. Choosing a career becomes easier when we recognize that personal growth is not exclusive to our daily jobs. That’s all.

I grew up in Chicago, on the shores of majestic Lake Michigan. The city is one of North America’s most historic transportation hubs, an intermodal port with strategic links to the Great Lakes, the Mississippi River, and the American rail system. I don’t come from a maritime background, but my parents owned a trucking company with a fleet of 20 vehicles and a crew of drivers. Ever since I can remember I have been fascinated by logistics and how goods are transported around the world.

After high school, I followed that interest to the United States Merchant Marine Academy in Kings Point, New York to study logistics and intermodal transportation. As students, we had the opportunity to work as deck cadets, spending the equivalent of a year at sea on container ships, supply vessels and freighters. I sailed to Spain, Morocco, US West Coast, Hawaii and the Suez Canal. Sometimes I acted as a deck officer, steering the ship and navigating the waterways, or I might be on lookout or in charge of supervising the movement of cargo. Once I was on the bow of a ship when it hit a dock in Morocco, coming too fast to port. There were no injuries but the ship spent 30 days in port for repairs.

Needless to say, these early experiences sharpened my problem-solving and time-management skills. I then joined the United States Coast Guard as a Marine Inspector in Corpus Christi, Texas on the Gulf of Mexico, where I learned the ropes of ship inspection on barges, small passenger ships and ferries, as well as cargo ships and tankers. Navigating the world of compliance gives you a 360 degree view of the maritime industry and all its protocols. Inspectors must ensure that relevant treaties, rules and regulations are adhered to in areas such as construction, stability, operations, staffing, safety and security.

Shudak thanks voters

Although the results were not what we hoped tonight (Tuesday), I want to emphasize that I respect the wishes of the voters of Pottawattamie County, as we all should, at every level.

I am also very proud of the campaign we ran and the coalition of people we put together. We spoke to people in every corner of this county, knocked on thousands of doors and listened intently to what they had to say. Some of them voted for me and some didn’t, but I think they all felt heard.

I congratulate the new members and the permanent members of the board of directors. I hope they will work to represent all residents of Pottawattamie County.

Although it was not enough to win, thousands of people voted for our campaign – a campaign centered on residents’ concerns about the county’s extravagant purchases with taxpayers’ money, concerns about a lack of transparency and concerns that we are not treating our employees and county workers in general with the respect they deserve. These concerns are not going away and I hope the new board will hear and continue to work to address them.

The Shudak family has been in Pottawattamie County for over 100 years, so I’m not going anywhere. I will continue to stand up for workers and help the county council create a growing, prosperous and prosperous Pottawattamie County in any way I can. I look forward to continuing this work.

Untapped Talent: US Service Wives

National Veterans and Military Families Month is recognized each November to honor the service and sacrifices of our veterans, military members and their spouses. Many may not realize that keeping our military veterans and spouses employed helps sustain our nation’s all-volunteer strength.

Data from the US Bureau of Labor Statistics and the US Census Bureau clearly indicate that veterans have lower unemployment rates and higher labor market earnings than their non-veteran counterparts. This data is not the same for the nearly one million military spouses who make significant sacrifices to support their service member’s career. Frequent forced moves, combined with the challenges of interstate professional licensing, lead to high unemployment among military spouses.

Military spouses, 88% of whom are women, have about the same level of education as the general public: 33% have a bachelor’s degree and 17% have obtained a graduate or professional diploma according to the 2019 Department of Defense (DoD) Survey of Military Spouses. This survey, along with a 2021 Blue Star Families Survey, has consistently estimated unemployment rates for military spouses to be four times higher than the national average.

While many military spouses are superbly qualified in a wide variety of fields, they often struggle to find and maintain rewarding careers. They are often overlooked for positions because they lack career continuity or don’t have enough time in a new place to put down roots and develop a network.

The Institute for Veterans and Military Families at Syracuse University reported that military spouses cross state lines 10 times more often than their civilian counterparts. Frequent moves result in a difficult and winding career path for military spouses, a problem that is exacerbated by the difficulty of transferring professional licenses that are typically regulated at the state level. For the 35% of military spouses who work in a field requiring licensing, this often results in unemployment or underemployment due to the time it takes to get certified in that new state. It is even more difficult abroad or in isolated places where job opportunities are extremely limited.

VETS has launched three initiatives to help address military spouse unemployment: Transition Employment Assistance for Military Spouses (TEAMS), an online licensing and credentialing tool, and Employer Navigator and Partnership Pilot (ENPP) .

TEAMS is a series of Department of Labor employment workshops that extend the Department’s Transition Assistance Program to military spouses interested in pursuing a new career.

VETS has also set up an online tool for military spouses containing information on interstate licensing, license reimbursement, occupations with interstate reciprocal agreements, and other resources to help find career opportunities. State-specific information on job requirements.

VETS launched ENPP in 2021, and it is now available in 21 locations worldwide. ENPP provides one-on-one career assistance to transitioning service members and their spouses in partnership with selected employment and training organizations in the public and private sectors.

In support of National Veterans and Military Families Month, I invite employers across the country to seek out and hire military spouses. Contact a VETS Regional Veterans Employment Coordinator who can connect employers with federal, state, and other resources to help them find and hire military spouses, transitioning service members, and veterans . Finding suitable employment for our military spouses is essential to maintaining our all-volunteer force and is a great way to support the families of military members who serve our country.

The Pi Beta Phi gate at the north entrance to the U of A campus.

The Fulbright College of Arts and Sciences Student Success Team is excited to offer a new class for sophomores at U of A. The course, titled “The Sophomore Experience,” will begin in the spring 2023 and is designed for sophomores exploring their academic, career, and life goals.

“We created this course to allow students to explore opportunities,” said Deb Korth, director of Fulbright College Student Success. “Since many students are still deciding their path, life goals, and major in their second year, we wanted them to have a place where they could be introspective while working to become a professional.”

Lynn Meade, Assistant Professor of Student Success Education and Communications Instructor, will lead the interactive, student-centered course.

“This course combines all the things I love to teach — self-exploration, storytelling, and professionalism,” Meade said. “Students in this class will have the opportunity to reflect on their strengths and weaknesses and create an action plan. The goal is not, ‘what do you want to do?’ but rather ‘who do you want to be?'”

“My greatest goal is to empower students to succeed, to achieve their academic and life goals, and to feel like they have the personal knowledge and self-confidence to pursue those goals.” she added.

Meade said students can expect interaction and activity to be the cornerstone of the course.

“We’re going to talk about a concept and then put that concept into action,” she said. “For example, students will learn about networking and professional communication, then practice those skills while dining with community and campus leaders.”

Meade, recipient of the Fulbright Master Teacher Award and the Imhoff Award for Teaching and Mentoring, encourages sophomores to explore the course when planning the spring semester and reminds students that all majors at all colleges are invited to register. For those interested, the course code is ARSC2003.

“We know students want classroom experiences,” Meade said. “They want to do more than just talk about things; they want to do things. Not only that, but they look for the meaning behind what they learn – and this course helps our second year students ask the right questions that lead them to these answers.

Almost four years ago, Summit’s Loryn Roberson hung up her longboard, racing kit and helmet to launch her career.

Although the decision led Roberson to a position as Communications Manager at Keystone Ski Resort and eventually Senior Communications Manager at Copper Mountain Resort, his passion for skateboarding never waned.

That fire led Roberson to place well in his first downhill skateboard race in nearly four years, opening the door for him to represent Copper Mountain Resort, Summit County and the United States at the World Skate Games in San Juan, Utah. Argentina, next week.



Roberson – or better known as Lorynlongboards on Instagram, first got into longboarding as a means of transportation during her freshman year at Central Michigan University.

“I bought my first longboard right after I graduated from high school,” Roberson said. “I bought this only for the purpose of touring my college campus.”



Shortly after buying her first longboard, Roberson discovered she could deftly descend them at a fast pace. Roberson competed in her first downhill skateboard race in 2012, and on the 2015 Downhill Skateboard World Tour, Roberson placed third overall.

Despite widespread success, Roberson made the decision in 2018 to take time off after landing his role at Keystone Ski Resort.

“I took a break from skateboarding,” Roberson said. “I was really focused on my career and the ski industry.”

This spring, Roberson made the decision to once again don his sleek aero helmet with his longboard gloves.

“As soon as I got back on my board, the thrill came back,” Roberson said of his return to the sport. “I’m a huge adrenaline junkie, and that’s been my identity for so long. I wanted to get back on the board and make sure I could still do it.

In Roberson’s first race after his break, Roberson earned a fourth-place finish at the Maryhill Spring Freeride in Washington State in April.

Back then, racing was just a freeride where a road is blocked off and the athletes go out to have fun.

“I did it to see if I could still skate and have a good time,” Roberson said. “About a month before the event, they announced that it would be a world qualifier for the USA skate team. I ended up doing really well and had a point for myself. qualify for the (world) team.

With a race under his belt for the first time in years, Roberson continued to train on the Swan Mountain Road portion of the Summit County Recreational Trail and Ute Pass Road in Summit County.

In a bid to claim a spot on the USA Women’s Downhill Skateboarding Team for the 2022 World Skate Games, Roberson competed in her second World Qualifier to rack up enough points to hopefully be named to the team. American.

At a downhill skateboard race in Vermont, Roberson placed third overall to place fourth in the United States and secure one of six spots on the World Women’s Skateboard Team. roller skates from the United States.

“It’s an incredible honor,” Roberson said. “USA has a team of pretty talented women who can shred pretty hard. Coming back – and now being considered one of the oldest people to have been on the scene for a while – was really good.

Roberson will join five other women and six men on Team USA at the World Skate Games. Each participating country will also bring their top six male and female athletes to the event.

Roberson will begin training with Team USA in San Juan on Nov. 8, then begin individual qualifying on Nov. 11. After qualifying, Roberson will be seeded into a group and then face other competitors in a series of rounds on November 11. 12.

Roberson is looking forward to visiting San Juan for the first time while striving to qualify for the downhill skateboarding final, which ends Nov. 12.

“I’m really excited to be going to see so many of my friends that I’ve met around the world,” Roberson said. “A lot of these people I’ve been skating with for 10 years, so coming back after a little break is going to be pretty awesome. A lot of us are the only women in our scene, so when we get together it’s pretty special.

Roberson is grateful to her sponsors Copper Mountain Resort, MIDS and Venom. For World Skate Games results, visit WorldSkate.org.

Not knowing what to do with the rest of your life is a common problem for high schoolers, something Marko Glassock knows all too well.

He got help determining his options through an apprenticeship program at his school.

The Buffalo teenager testified this week before Wyoming lawmakers at a meeting of the Joint Committee on Minerals, Business and Economic Development about why he thinks apprenticeship programs like Work Smart should be in each school district.

“I was lucky to have a teacher willing to help me through this process of finding my dream job,” he said. “During the first semester of Working Smart, I took dozens of surveys to find my interests that might relate to a certain profession.”

A step ahead

The outcome of the process turned out to be quite different from what he expected, Glassock said.

Throughout his high school career, he said he always thought of himself as a farm shop and carpentry kid. But through job shadowing opportunities, he realized there was a profession he found much more exciting.

Now he has decided to become an electrician and wants to start his own business in Wyoming.

“At the end of my semester, I would go to job sites and get paid to help with the work that I was allowed to do,” he told lawmakers. “I got a summer job while I was getting my first electrician apprentice card. »

A clear path

Now a senior at Buffalo High School, Glassock said he was beginning the process of on-the-job training and taking online courses, which his boss helped him identify, best suited his goals.

Once he graduates, he’ll be ready to take his journeyman’s exam, after which he’ll pursue a master’s degree, and then he’ll be ready to break out his own shingle as a certified electrician in Wyoming.

“I love being a farm shop kid, I also love building stuff at the stake,” he said. “And I was kind of clueless about what I wanted to do, and I had several ideas, but I really had no idea until I had the opportunity to go and experience some things from everyday working life with those in my community who do. participate in these activities.


Buffalo High School senior Marko Glassock, left, testifies to the benefits of apprenticeship programs for the Legislative Joint Committee on Minerals, Business and Economic Development.

Limited opportunities

Not all Wyoming students have access to the same orientation and learning programs as Glassock. While some districts have strong apprenticeship programs, others offer nothing at all.

“Honestly, it becomes an equity issue,” said Wyoming Director of Careers and Technical Education Dr. Michelle Aldrich. “When we have districts where students are allowed to earn up to three elective credits toward graduation through work experience and (then) we have districts that don’t allow anything.”

The program Glassock attended is not part of the state’s official student learning agreements. This is an example of how the state underutilizes its resources to develop its own workforce.

“There’s a lot of work-based learning going on in the state where that opportunity or that resource isn’t being fully utilized,” Aldridge said. “I just visited a colleague in the Department of Workforce Services this morning to find out how many student apprenticeship agreements were and how many districts have used this opportunity.

“And I’m told that since its inception, there has been one district and one student who has actually completed this form, even though we have spoken to all 48 districts about it.”

Equal training

Cindy DeLancey, president of the Wyoming Business Alliance, echoed Aldrich’s concerns about fairness.

“Every child in the state should have the opportunity to earn credit for workplace learning, regardless of the impact on other programs in the district,” she told the committee. “It shouldn’t be driving how our districts make decisions.

“We should be student-focused and work to develop our workforce so that Wyoming can remain a leader in the country and in the region, so that we can employ and keep our children here for future generations. »

Both Delancey and Aldrich told lawmakers they believe the Schools Apprenticeship and Skills Training Advancement Bill is a good start to leveling out opportunities across the state while empowering all The parties involved.

“I know there’s still a lot of work to do,” DeLancey said. “But if that’s what it takes to help us walk down this path, my members really want to see that level of clarity, accountability, and accountability for all parties in this conversation, not just state agencies. , districts or department.

“You know, everyone equally shares the role, the lift here, to really get us over the finish line.”

Your personality trait plays an important role in your career choice. Being extrovert or introvert determines, to a large extent, what job is right for you and how well you will thrive there. If you’re often described as energetic, charismatic, outgoing, and social, you’re probably an extrovert.


Extroverts have amazing qualities that, if channeled in the right direction, can help them achieve excellence. However, the problem lies in identifying a career that suits you in the labor industry. We’ve rounded up eight high-paying careers that are great for extroverts. Let’s discuss it below.


Social media influencer is one of the next big careers in the entertainment industry. As a social butterfly who likes to be in the limelight, you can build a large organic following. This could consist of different audiences on multiple social media platforms like Facebook, Instagram, and TikTok.

You can also use your natural charisma to influence your audience’s buying power and build trust. Of course, this encourages brands to use your social engagements and promote their products and services that appeal to your audience. Additionally, the average annual salary for a social media influencer is $41,047 per year, according to ZipRecruiter.

However, you can always set your own fees and terms of engagement yourself. Moreover, you can operate multiple niches simultaneously, such as fashion, travel, education, and lifestyle. However, if you dive into the lifestyle industry, which requires you to use your life as content, take note of the things you should never share on social media for content.

2. Customer Support Specialist

A customer support specialist is a direct link between a company and its customers. This position requires social and interpersonal skills, which makes it suitable for extroverts. When faced with conflict, you can use your interpersonal skills, like quick decision-making and problem solving, to resolve issues before they escalate.

You can work as a receptionist, call center agent or concierge. Meanwhile, the average salary for a customer support specialist is $47,400 per year, according to Payscale.

3. Public Relations Manager

Extroverts are naturally more PR-oriented than their introverted counterparts. They can lead the discussions physically and virtually. And being a PR staff might be the best choice for you. A public relations manager is responsible for internal and external communications, public affairs, and all forms of media coverage in a company.

In other words, your primary responsibility is to improve a brand’s image and oversee product/service campaigns. You can be on the staff of an organization (for-profit or non-profit) or be a freelance public relations specialist. According to Payscale, public relations managers earn an average of $72,604 per year.

4. Sales or Marketing Manager

Being a sales or marketing manager is one of the best careers for extroverts because it involves a lot of socializing and networking. As a sales manager, your main role is to supervise a company’s sales team, organize trainings and ensure that your team meets the sales quota for a period.

You will also need to continually engage in small talk and use your natural enthusiastic charm to entice people into buying a product or service. During this time, you can specialize in business-to-business (B2B), business-to-business (B2C), direct, SaaS, or affiliate sales. Additionally, you can expect to earn up to $63,359 per year, according to Payscale.

5. Advisor or Coach

Typically, an extrovert is compassionate, a great communicator, and enjoys being involved in other people’s lives. This makes consulting a suitable career path for one. Counselors help people make positive changes in different aspects of their lives, such as careers, relationships, and education.

While you still need to learn specific counseling techniques and certifications, your natural outgoing traits already give you a solid foundation to thrive in the industry. You can render your services independently or work with a psychotherapy company. Meanwhile, the average annual salary for a licensed professional counselor is $50,298, depending on the pay scale.

6. Human Resources Manager

Human resource managers act as a liaison between employees and employers. They often oversee the hiring of new employees, as well as the training and management of staff. Additionally, they help organizations develop their work culture and benefits, payroll, and manage workplace conflict.

These and other responsibilities require high-level people skills to allow you to connect with diverse personalities at different levels, making it an ideal choice for extroverts. According to Payscale, human resource managers earn up to $74,000 per year.

However, your salary may be higher or lower, depending on your skills and certifications. You can work as an independent human resources consultant or limit your services to one company.

7. Event Planner

Event planning involves the creation and development of personal or corporate events on a small to large scale, such as weddings, conferences, concerts and festivals. Having the innate ability to manage interactions with a variety of people, including customers, vendors and event staff, gives you an edge in hosting successful events.

You can also take advantage of different mobile apps for event management to streamline your responsibilities. Additionally, you can be a contractor and set your own rates or work for an interior decorating company. According to Payscale, the average annual salary for event planners is $51,596. The demand for event planners is on the rise. So whichever path you choose, you can be sure to win well.

8. UX Designer

UX design is a people-oriented career that involves developing and managing the user experience of a digital product. Most of the time, the role requires you to work directly with an organization’s marketing team to understand customer needs and demands and integrate the brand message into the product.

Moreover, it is a versatile profession, which is not limited to a single industry. In other words, you can work in healthcare, finance, education, or blockchain. You can also work as a freelancer or full-time employee on site. According to Payscale, the average salary for a UX designer is $76,341 per year.

Know your personality type before choosing your career

Choosing your target industry and career path can be difficult. Therefore, we suggest you first analyze your personality and identify your interests, strengths and weaknesses to help you make rational decisions about your career. You can consult a psychologist or use apps to learn more about your personality type to erase every iota of uncertainty.

Most Popular Career Options After Pursuing an International MBA | Representative photo

It’s no mystery as to the appeal of a top international MBA. When asked about this, most aspirants will say things ranging from changing geography to changing job function or industry. For almost all, a big part of the attraction comes from the top dollars one can earn in careers after the MBA

A quick glance at the employment reports of America’s top 3 MBA programs (read Harvard, Stanford, and Wharton), reveals that median starting salaries for MBA graduates range between $150,000 and $158,000. $ (upwards or INR 1.2 Cr)! And that’s not all, they also end up earning almost $67,000 (another half Cr) in performance and connection bonuses.

Although an MBA can open doors to several types of jobs and industries, it can be argued that it does so for some more than others. Looking at the same data as above, one can find three types of jobs/industries emerging as clear winners: consulting, finance and technology. Let’s take a closer look at what these roles are. We’ll also give an overview of other popular roles towards the end of this article. So, if you’re wondering how to choose a career, read on.

Consultant

Management or strategy consulting, as it is more commonly known, has been the first choice of MBA graduates for decades. In a nutshell, as a consultant, you typically solve CxO-level business problems. The biggest names of employers in this field which are globally known are known as MBB – McKinsey & Co, Boston Consulting Group (BCG) and Bain & Company.

The reason for the popularity of this career path is both the moolah you make, but also the kind of exposure and learning it can provide. Right from the start, you can take part in board discussions of top organizations and rub shoulders with the best and brightest minds in the business world.

Financial services

Under this umbrella term, there are a variety of roles and jobs. The most popular and arguably the largest recruiter is the investment bank; a close second could be investment or asset management. Broadly speaking, investment banking involves providing financial services to organizations (and individuals in some cases) through investment strategies and risk management, among other services. Some big names in this field would be Goldman Sachs, JP Morgan, Morgan Stanley, Citigroup and more.

A big attraction for this career choice comes from the best dollars one can earn, arguably the highest among the popular career choices on offer. It also gives you the ability to discern the financial numbers that drive most decisions in the business world. The business world revolves around money and this career choice is all about managing money (wealth) properly.

Technology

The first images that come to mind when you hear about technology are probably of software engineers powering our modern world. What is he doing in the world of MBAs, one might wonder. While core technology and innovation are essential, it can be said that it is equally essential to bring said technology or innovation to millions and billions of people. This is the realm of the business world. Over the past decade, jobs related to technology management have become one of the most sought after and some of the highest paying on top MBA campuses. The most popular career choice in this field is product management. Simply put, a product manager works with a cross-functional team (including engineering, marketing, sales, finance, and others) to bring technology products to life. The cycle from the conception of a product to its launch is known as the product development life cycle (PDLC). Like MBBs in Consulting, top companies in this industry have also come up with their own version – FAANG which stands for Facebook (now Meta), Amazon, Apple, Netflix and Google (now Alphabet).

The appeal of this role stems from its ability to put you in a position where you thrive in the world of technology and can literally transform millions/billions of people live or interacting or much more. The fact that it pays a lot of money is all the incentive needed to drive this straight up when it comes to career choices after the MBA.

Others

Some of the other popular career choices an MBA opens up are general management, sales and marketing, private equity/venture capital, and operations management. A small proportion of graduates also pursue careers in slightly more specialized fields such as healthcare management, manufacturing, media and social impact.

The moral of the story (or at least of this article), however, is this. An MBA can undoubtedly open doors for you. But as an MBA aspirant, never accept admission blindly, that is, without knowing or having any idea what kind of career you want to pursue. It is important to plan your career and then decide to invest your hard-earned money in an MBA, which can be quite an expensive degree. If you are unsure, seek career advice through networking, with your mentors and with experienced career counselors.

Remember that the right “answer” for you may mean not pursuing an MBA at all!
