Defining Moments

How I responded to discouragement


    Messages from Myself:

    You need to choose a specific career and obtain an advanced degree

  • How I responded:

    Choosing one specific career and going for an advanced degree will certainly help you "climb the ladder" and hopefully provide for job security and advancement. For those like me that have varied interests and don't know what they want to do "when they grow up", this is difficult. It is possible to find fulfilling and satisfying work with "just" an undergrad degree.
