How have your career goals changed as you and your children have aged?
I have teens now and I am ramping up my career like I haven't done since I was in my 20s. I am putting the pieces in place to earn a masters, I am applying to jobs that require travel and I am willing to commute further. I want that big salary and the corner office! I am 46 now and have to work for another 20 years, it's time to soar!
We went to college in the 90s, started our careers when cell phones were a luxury that came with a shoulder bag and fax machines were the newest tech.
Here we are now, in what should be the best years of our career facing an ever changing work culture that sees established Boomers still running the show with Millennials expecting to be the next leaders. Meanwhile we just want to take a vacation, make sure the kids get to soccer practice and fund our 401k.
Keep it on topic, be decent humans, no keyboard warriors.
