Your career values represent the beliefs you have about what is important in your work, and what makes it meaningful to you. We all value something different which makes us all very unique! Some will look for prestige, while others seek a creative outlet, and still, others want flexible hours and independence. The list of desires can include earning a high income and meeting and interacting with people. Of course, the chance for advancement in the career field is also a primary driver of why people will choose any particular position. One thing is constant; people who are most satisfied with their work or jobs are in careers where most of their values are being met. People who are most dissatisfied with their careers have values that clash with their jobs.
