It's very important for students to know what they like to do, it's also very important to know how those interests can be related to the possibility of getting a job you like.

A question you should ask yourself..."Live to work, or work to live?"  This is the essence between a job and a career.  A job is a means to an end.  You work at a job to get by and pay bills.  A career is a life-path.  You build your career over time with a long range goal based on what you like or love to do.

"Do what you love and success and satisfaction will follow."  - Money Principle
