I was sitting at my desk one day catching up on my e-mails when I heard a couple of my colleagues chatting next door about their children. One of them blurted out, “Thank goodness my son is finally going back to school to finish off his degree!”
Her son had left university because he didn’t like the courses he was taking. Instead, he wanted to fast-track his way to earning a good income, so he decided to get a job in the postal business. After a while he realized that although his income was really good, he also realized that he doesn’t want to do shift work and manual labour for the rest of his life. Lo and behold, he went back to school to pick up where he left off with an aspiration to establish a career in the field of science. There are many different factors that might trigger an individual to jump from one job to another. However, in this case, the student realized that he didn’t want just a job; he needs a career.
