Career Definition

Job? Career? Calling? We at CareerCycles take a holistic view, and talk about making well-informed and inspiring “career and life choices.” In this context, and when we use the word “career” in conversation, in our tools, Career Sketch and Career Statement, or in our publications, we define it as follows…

Your “career” is

the full expression of who you are and how you want to be in the world.

And, it keeps on expanding 

as it naturally goes through cycles

of stability & change.
