About This Class


Whether you’re in the early stages of your career and looking for direction, or you've been working for several years and wondering if this is all there is, this class is for you. 

You’ll determine your career sweet spot by using a Japanese technique known as Ikigai (pronounced “icky-guy”). This entails looking at four aspects: what you love; what you're good at; what the world needs, and what you can get paid for. At the intersection of these four areas lies your career sweet spot. 

As a class project, you’ll use a template that will guide you in discovering your sweet spot. 

Revisit this class regularly as your sweet spot will change over time according to your own interests and the changing world around us!
