For most of us our career prospects starts with knowing what makes us happy in life, or what we can do best.
Then there is the question of earning what you are worth… Most people do not earn what they are worth and some are just happy to be earning something because it is a job and an employer is willing to pay for it. Your education or training (and experience) will dictate what you earn and making the correct choices from the start can go a long way towards your eventual employment prospects and happiness in life. For those who are serious about career and life choices, is it important to know what kind of work you want to do, and even more importantly, what you want to earn.
