Lesson 6: Values & Interests


The purpose of this lesson is to remind us that our values will influence where we work and whether or not we are satisfied with that work. If there is incongruence between personal values and corporate values, you will be less satisfied with your job. Further, by identifying your areas of interest, selecting a course of study becomes easier since you become aware of what you are interested in doing.
