What career do your parents want you to choose?

Career Key

Parents strongly influence their child's career choice. As a new parent, I now understand better why it would be so easy to get overly involved in my son's process of choosing a career, especially if it were in a direction I did not agree with (i.e. professional skydiver/stuntman).

Reality vs. Opportunity in Careers: Find a Mentor

Career Key

Recently I was reading a book about TV watching and children and I came across a chapter on the unrealistic portrayal of "real life" by TV shows. Shows like "Friends," "Seinfeld," and so-called reality shows are all guilty of this distortion; who hangs out socializing in a coffeeshop all day (and makes a living)? Who can afford an apartment in NYC and appear unemployed (Kramer), etc.? TV is often an escapist fantasy for many of us, myself included.

Career Tests: Choosing the right career test to choose the right career

Career Key

A valid career test can help you in choosing a career. Career testing can give you valuable career help. You can, • Identify good career options, • Learn about yourself, and • Understand how the career you choose affects your job satisfaction and success. We have worked hard to maximize these benefits for Career Key users. And, quite frankly, I think we are the best on the Internet. What surprises me is the number and popularity of fake career tests online.

Career Key

We encourage users to see it as a process, to follow the steps in the self-help articles that apply. Most will agree that the breadth, depth, and quality of our articles are unrivaled. But, with a few exceptions, the percent of people who look at them is quite small.
