For many of us, that first job helps us get started on how to work, deal with coworkers, and understand how work differs from school. But at some point, it is time to get a job that offers benefits, provides security, and gives you the ability to plan your future.
A “grown-up” job, your career, is one where you can count on the number of hours you need to achieve your goals. It doesn’t have to be full time, but you should know what to expect from week to week so you can budget and plan ahead. Being able to schedule time with your family and friends, manage appointments, and refresh yourself is vital to being happy.
Grown-up jobs also provide different kinds of benefits, whether it is full healthcare, retirement, or other perks to being at work. It has been shown in study after study that preventative care is the best way to prevent serious illness, but without health insurance, that is difficult to manage. Employers provide health insurance to help their employees achieve their health proactively.
Retirement benefits are important so that you plan for your future. While it may not seem that important today, it is vital to have enough resources to manage your life while you are working and when you would like to stop.
