Are you satisfied with your career ?

I am going back to school in January for another 4 yr degree. I love my career, been at it for 5 yrs but I'm not quite satisfied. I feel like I need to keep climbing that "ladder". I think I'll always feel that way all my life even after that 4yrs. Anyone else ever have that feeling where you need to keep climbing even if you are already "successful" ?

  • I just started but I know I will go back eventually. Not to keep climbing but just for more education. I love learning new things.

  • I'm happy and stay challenged. I really don't want to get into management, which is where 'moving up' exists in my company.

  • I was satified with my career until I retired. I have never been satisfied with what I know. I have always been a fan of continuing to take classes and to learn.

  • I agree with KTE I could never do your job, but if I could I bet it would be a fun job to be in.
