Definition of Career:

  1. Move swiftly and in an uncontrolled way in a specified direction.

  2. An occupation undertaken for a significant period of a persons life and with opportunities for progress.

  3. The progress and actions taken by a person throughout a lifetime, especially those related to that persons occupations. A career is often composed of the jobs held, titles earned and work accomplished over a long period of time, rather than just referring to one position.

    While employees in some cultures and economies stay with one job during their career, there is an increasing trend to employees changing jobs more frequently. For example, an individuals career could involve being a lawyer, though the individual could work for several different firms and in several different areas of law over a lifetime.
