|13.20||What a career really means.|
We spend our school years and early 20s striving to build foundations for our ‘ideal job’ – yet most of us are unsure of what we actually want to do with our lives.
Whilst skills and experience are important – your career starts with YOU!
This session will help us ask some tough questions – around what a career really means is; what happiness is for you and how your work can form part of a happy and fulfilling life.
