Poll Results: Is Your Current Job Aligned with Your Career Goals?

As we advance in our careers, we set goals for ourselves.

In October, we asked if your current job is aligned with your career goals. Here’s what they had to say:

With 51%, the top answer to the monthly poll was “No, my current job does not align with my career goals,” followed by “Yes, I’m right on track to achieve my goals,” with 39%. With another 33% of the votes, readers said, “Not exactly, but it’s a step in the right direction.”

What Does it Mean?

Most polled workers say their current position does not fit where they want to be in their careers. However, some workers think they have headed in the right direction or that their position is a stepping stone to something bigger.
