Choosing A Career
8. Values - Pt 1Values are the things that we believe in and which we think are important. Each person has a value system which has been influenced by their background and their philosophy of life.
Some jobs provide a scope for expressing what we believe, while other occupations go against certain values. You could find that a job which supports your value system will interest and motivate you far more than a job which goes against your values.
Because there is a strong relationship between jobs and lifestyle, the things which you value in your lifestyle - income, location, free time, etc. - can also play an important part in your career choice.
