Seven work myths

Mythbusting with WorkStudyGrow is a great article busting some work myths, with some excellent links to work statistics and figures:

  1. It’s only ‘work’ if you earn an income from it
  2. Salary is the most important thing (this is something that comes up often)
  3. What you know is more important that who you know
  4. You’re not supposed to like your job
  5. Everyone has to work
  6. Once I get my dream job, I’ll be happy
  7. I need to work out what I want to do when I grow up first

Anyone at any stage of their career can gain some insights from this article. Number seven is most pertinent to our school students.
