Chapter 6. Creating a New Career Path > Defining Fulfilling Work

Defining Fulfilling Work

Much emphasis has been placed on having an ideal career vision that encompasses what you consider to be fulfilling work. You should feel good about your work, its outcomes, and the rewards you receive. When the time comes to look back at your professional life, what is it that you want your career to reflect about you and the work you did? Whether entering the training, HRD, and workplace learning and performance arena or contemplating a career move or professional shift within the field, if you haven’t written out your definition of fulfilling work, now is the time to do it. Practical Exercise 2 at the end of this chapter will guide you through a comprehensive description of your ideal work scenario, and through that effort you’ll discover the characteristics of your fulfilling work.

I genuinely enjoy working with people and have always had interesting, challenging assignments. Simply stated, I love what I do, and that passion has served me well in my career development.

—Liz Stagg, project manager, Training and Multimedia Solutions Group, and manager of instructional design, Teledyne Brown Engineering, Huntsville, AL
