How are educational and career goals different? How are they the same? Why is it essential to set educational and career goals?

The individuals who are setting those goals might be a different group from one another.

For example if you're a college student interested in broadening your education..then you have a specific but different educational goal. Your horizon is focused on broadening your understanding of the world, classic literature, history, maybe sciences...but your goal is the degree predominantly.

However, a different social group has a different goal of establishing their career (to get and keep employment) as their goal. These two goals do not have to intersect and they may serve different purposes.

Where these 2 goals may intersect is, for example, someone who wants to become a professor or academician. They need a broad and deep education to teach or administrate and have the dual goals in their educational horizon.
