Your work is going to fill a large part of your life, and the only way to be truly satisfied is to do what you believe is great work. And the only way to do great work is to love what you do. If you haven’t found it yet, keep looking. Don’t settle. - Steve Jobs
Live with Passion. Work with Purpose.
It may be boredom or not being challenged. It may be pressure or anxiety. It may be frustration. Over half of the US is unhappy with their work and careers (read the article here). When people are not sure about what they want to do with their lives or how to move up in their career, they may feel lost, stuck, and confused about what to do next.

It's time for more than a job.
Our economy demands that we be more than human robots, more than simple factory workers. It is time to have more than a job - we need you to have a calling. College and career guidance helps youth and adults reach their full potential; it facilitates space to create work that we are deeply interested, so that we may make a positive difference in our world. Like building a muscle, career’s can be developed - having a job that makes you happy is possible.
