Both young people who have just entered the labor market and people with many years of experience who are reevaluating their priorities struggle with the problem of determining their direction of development. On the other hand, for some people it is a very easy task - from their teenage years, they showed interest in one specific field and are 100% sure that they want to choose a related career path.
Fulfilling your dreams about a career, achieving a specific position, and gaining particular experience can be called professional goals. Employers usually look more favorably at people who have strictly defined their ambitions. If we know what we are striving for and have set a clear direction for ourselves, it is much easier for us to find the internal motivation for self-development. It also favors better organization of work, increases the satisfaction derived from it, and facilitates achieving success.
