By Barbara J. Cormack (France)
From the earliest memories of your childhood you will remember the days when you said ‘I want to be … when I grow up!’ Everyone is entitled to choose their own career, but as a coach, I often hear people talk about ‘the career my father suggested’, or ‘the career the careers officer at school suggested’, or ‘I was best at this subject at school’ or ‘this career sounded exciting’ or a number of other reasons that do not explain that you chose your career using conscious decision. It often feels as though the career that is chosen is one of convenience rather than one of conscious decision.
I am one of those people who went into a career my father felt was best suited to me, based on my results at school. Since then I have successfully had five careers and am moving into my sixth.
