It takes a lot of time and effort to discover who God designed you to be, your strengths and interests, which careers would be a good fit, and what the best path may be toward achieving your goals.  Waiting to start this process can delay progress toward a future career and income.


It’s a well-known fact that college is costing more these days and taking longer to complete; one reason for this is because many students get to college and realize that the major they chose was not right for them, and then waste time and money trying to figure out a better fit.


Picking a career is more than just identifying strengths and interests. There are many other factors to consider that can impact happiness and success in life. With thousands of job possibilities, it is important to determine what is important to you and learn more about your options.  Taking the time to plan well can help ensure sustained satisfaction in your career.  We will walk through this process step by step.


It’s all waiting for you right now, so you can complete this course at your own pace!  Watch the 14 videos, complete the journal exercises, and use the on-line tools to create your plan for a satisfying career.  The more you put into the process, the more  you’ll get out of it!
