How Can You Approach Work as a Calling?

Show #85: February 28, 2013

Dr. Bryan Dik will be our guest this week on this important topic. Bryan is currently Associate Professor of Psychology at Colorado State University ( CSU). He also is co-founder and Chief Science Officer of jobZology, a start-up company that assesses and provides feedback to job-seekers and facilitates matches to employers based on psychological fit.

Dr. Dik earned his B.A. in Psychology from Calvin College and his Ph.D. in Counseling Psychology from the University of Minnesota. His research is primarily in the area of career development, especially perceptions of work as a calling; in career decision-making and planning; measurement of vocational interests; and career development interventions.

We will be discussing:

  • What exactly does it mean to approach work as a calling?
  • How does your “calling” impact your job search?
  • How is a calling different from a job or career?
  • What steps can people take to discern a calling?
  • What is wrong with the “pray and wait” approach?
  • How can people take their faith to work?
