Overview InfoScience and art coming together as one in this great story about career explorer Amanda Phingbodhipakkiya
Science + Art = 🔥
When it comes to career design or career development, we often talk about looking within to find out what makes you tick and what lights that fire within you.
We usually refer to this as finding your “passion” and a common misconception is that we need to find that one passion to pursue. Though we are multifaceted human beings and we do enjoy engaging in many different things, we rarely have just one passion. So why limit yourself to pursuing just one passion or interest, when you can combine several passions?
