Career builder expectations

True career builders hope and aim for success at the start of their careers. Building that success is a part of their daily concerns as they evolve and mature. A career builder may not fully achieve the dreams he or she had at youth, but it’s the aiming that counts, and the status achieved will be certainly higher with that aiming than without it. Having a look at the main expectations career builders have at the beginning of their careers helps to visualize the entire process. These are the main expectations widespread among tenacious young people willing to build a career:

Social status. Human beings need acknowledgement by their community or at least by their circle of relatives and friends. Achieving a good social status is a legitimate goal present in all career builders’ list of objectives.

Professional reputation. Just like social status but even harder to achieve. A medical doctor may be socially respected just because he or she is a doctor, and still be despised by his or her pairs as a mediocre professional. Achieving a high professional status is certainly a career builder’s objective.

Economic well being. Whatever may be said by the collectivistic critics of property, wealth and riches are a legitimate aspiration of every human being. A genuine career builder will not just dream of obtaining them, but will plan and organize a whole lifetime career to become richer than the average. The market rewards those who provide other people with what they need, so getting rich (legally) actually means that you have served others and society acknowledges that fact. Envy often makes many people despise the hard-earned comfort and luxury achieved by self-made persons, but career builders want those benefits and will work hard (and, especially will work well) to obtain them.

Security. A succesful career means among other things security. Security that you will not lack a job. Security that you will have the economic resources needed for you and your family. Security that you will feel useful and realize yourself professionally. Career builders, irrespective of their social origin, are determined to get (or preserve) that security.

Fun. Yes, “fun” in the broadest sense: joy. Let’s not forget that career builders are people who have chosen a certain profession because it is interesting to them. A career builder willnot choose to be a lawyer if he or she feels bored by Law. Career lawyers have fun doing what they do. There will always be boring or harder parts in their work, but generally they love their profession, they find it interesting and they wish they can bring it accross a new frontier. The hard-working lab scientist who dreams of reaching harder and making sense of a particular process is a typical example of a career builder. He or she will escalate positions at any price in order to reach that long-wanted research position that allows for the discovery dream to happen. To a completely different extent, the devoted salesperson who loves selling will enjoy conducting sales daily and will be thankful for that. So, yes, “fun” is one of the main expectations of a career builder.
