Pursue a career that makes you proudAbridged: Mashable

CHICAGO, IL -- Regardless of industry, most of us enter the workforce with a few basic goals and aspirations: career satisfaction, financial independence and a steady paycheck. Here are a few tips on developing a career worth some serious bragging rights.

Don't Take a Job You Don't Like (or Stay at a Job You Hate): Try to consider the long run when on the job hunt or when making a career change. There's almost always another option available rather than staying at a job that makes you miserable -- even if it means taking a temporary pay cut. Whenever possible, find a position that aligns with your overall career aspirations. Exit Each Job Gracefully: The better option is to be civil and, above all, professional. You never know who your former boss knows -- and not having a proper (or graceful) exit strategy may negatively affect your future career. Learn to enter a new position with gratitude and humility and exit in the same manner -- this practice can positively impact your career and, ultimately, your life.

Find a Mentor: Learning from those who have journeyed down a similar path can offer you comfort when you're faced with tough decisions or new responsibilities. Pursue Your Passion: By being smart and intuitive, and by following your heart, gut and long-term goals, you're more likely to find yourself on a career path that fills you with pride.
