A suitable marriage: Careers and identities at work

Abstract

This paper aims to facilitate a shift in thought for professionals of all ages who have experienced, or are experiencing, a dilemma surrounding their career choice. The paper explores why multiple career roles can lead to ineffectiveness, burnout, and division in self-perception. I will illustrate a few important questions that can lead to a meaningful congruence between different career roles and ideas of self, a state that promotes clarity, collaboration, and well-being. This exploration will assist professionals to engage proactively in career crafting and seeking ways to merge their various careers into one meaningful whole.
