The Benefits Of Building A Career

Tags: career
The importance of establishing a good Career have moved from a non-existing or subordinate priority to been the first. Those seeking a fulfilling and an interesting life, a financial independence and security, and even a qualitative personal relationship are finding the paying the price of building a career a worthwhile sacrifice.

No longer is it fashionable to rely on another person’s occupation and business ingenuity to guarantee you with a lifelong livelihood or of the things you need to materialise as a functional member of the human society. More than what existed before, the appreciation of innate skills is gaining acceptance alongside professional certification for most work descriptions. The diversification of work now is such that it involves everybody contributing to the whole exercise of meeting one needs or another.

In this broad appreciation, the notion of work is itself going through a reform. One of its noticeable characteristic is the structure; it is designed to accommodate those who are committed to building a career more than for those interested in contract and part-time jobs. In other words, people tent to relate with you in line with the type of services you can render. This is tending towards the line of job you are into and it is on this basis the career conscious individuals of today are building their relationships.

Chris Gardner’s story in the movie ‘the pursuit of happiness’ provides a vivid illustration on the importance of a good career. To be able to fit in, you must develop yourself by focusing on an aspect rather than aiming to be the jack of all. The era of ‘Mr. I Can Do All’ belongs to the wishful thinkers. Already, most of the known human field of activities have been broken down into say easy and manageable folios, operations, units and beats. Work in the realm of specialization is flexible, deploying both the know-how and the state-of-the-art technology that enables its operatives to lead a normal social life. Your job or work is the understanding you have about the human needs and wants around you and that you hope to meet with quality services.

Work conceived this way is no longer defined as just ‘getting a job’ or ‘going to work’. It is becoming clearer now that the work you do is what provides the substructure on which everything depends. It is by your contribution that you are known, that you build the network of dedicated clientele, build friends, sustain your family and for many other things. The notion of being the architect of your life comes handy here and I think it presupposes that you will make the right choice of what to do or become in life as well as establishing yourself as an authority in it. Once you accept this reality, it becomes easier to appreciate the primacy of a career. You have to be given to your endeavour until the same had revealed all of its secrets to you. This is what makes you outstanding and set you apart from every other competitor. It’s a level of vulnerability that ironically guarantees safety.

Another thing about a career is that, you are not limited by the walls. The dexterity of your functionality is not directly related to the number of office hours as before. Professionals can fix any problems via the net or through phone. The technology of this age has further enhanced the role of professionalism so much that as you become a master in one, you are also very well learned about its adjuncts. Work or jobs in the contract or part-time don’t make you a professional no matter how long you are in it. At best, you are only in the system for as long as your service is required. This is not so with a career. Even at the expiration of your deal with any client or organisation, you are still available to continue either on your own and providing rich functional services for another.

Career is a bold steps in the waters; you know it might drawn you but the risk of learning how to swim, or even of setting a new record for daring to try intrigues.
