Choosing a career is one of the most important decisions one will make in life. It’s about so much more than deciding what you will do to make a living. To start with, think about the amount of time we spend at work. We are on the job approximately 71% of every year. Over our lifetimes, this comes to roughly 31½ years out of the 45 years most of us spend working, from the beginning of our careers until retirement. The importance of selecting a career with which we are satisfied cannot be overemphasized.
While some people are lucky enough to just know what they want to do and end up satisfying careers without giving it much thought, most of us are not. Many people don’t put enough effort into choosing occupations or pick them for the wrong reasons. Maybe they choose careers that seem secure or pay well. They then end up unhappy.
Adolescents also face increased competition for jobs that require less education and further compete with others on their availability while enrolled in school. LaunchMyCareer helps individuals in guiding, identifying and picking their right career choices. It lets you unlock hidden skills and potential through assessments. Match core habits, strengths and traits with like-minded mentors, similar lifestyles, and fitting careers which will further accelerate the demand for a skilled workforce. It’s more important now than ever to incorporate career exploration within traditional education. Students today are applying and gaining those experiences through exploring their passions, extracurricular activities. LMC bridges that gap and lets one explore genuine self-discovery and workforce training, enabling one student at a time to find their way out.
