The Career Ladder Myth (and Why You Should Pursue a Career Adventure Instead)

I think this article shares some wise advice from the founder of ProFellow.  She has done lots of different things in her life, and the insight she has gathered is valuable.  Such as:

“Our cultural definition of “success” is still deeply rooted in the career ladder myth. Big titles and high salaries are prized possessions we pursue despite the fact that our happiness, health and personal life may suffer in that pursuit.

But think about this – if we cared less about traditional career ladders and more about having a career adventure, we might focus our 20’s gaining the wide variety of skills, experiences, networks and resources needed to create our own jobs in our 30’s.”
