I’m finding through the years that I am again enjoying things I’ve done earlier in my career. What about you? Indeed, is a career linear, or circular? Is it want vs. need? Of course, I’m in a field that has remained dynamic and refused to plateau for decades now.
In our teens and early twenties, we’re still figuring out what we want to be when we grow up. As we get older, we start to settle into a career. In between, we switch jobs in the search. Based on data from the Current Population Survey, this is when people make the switches and the jobs they switch to.
