Where Does yours Rank? And Does It Really Matter?

In continuing with our comments about our work, Money has just put together a list of the Top 50 Best Jobs In America. We are please to discover that our profession ranks rather high on the list. The synopsis of the profession is very general, but that statement is probably true for every profession listed. It is interesting to see the progression of one's career. We can truly remember sitting in the university library on a Friday night going on the 6th consecutive hour of studying asking ourselves if this would be worth it. To be honest, we still ask ourselves that question. Our education was very expensive as can be seen by our current student loan debt, yet we both would answer ultimately yes if ask would we do it again. However, at the end of the day, the positives still outweigh the negatives. And for us, the best part is that we love the fact that on a daily basis we are making a positive difference in the lives of perfect strangers.

After finishing the Money article it occurred to me that the worth of one's profession really can not be summarized by a few different categories, but rather a profession that allows for complete growth. One can not just measure the financial rewards or the annual job openings and declare a winner. We believe that for each person, the most rewarding profession allows one to grow as a complete person: financially, socially, spiritually, and mentally .
