Career Counseling Assignment

Don’t ask what the world needs. Ask what makes you come alive, and go do it.
Because what the world needs is people who have come alive.” ― Howard Thurman

A few years ago I developed an assignment called "Calling and Careers" that was intended to help students start to find their "calling." That assignment is posted here, although the formatting is a bit off. I'd be curious to learn of any other assignments like this that anyone else has incorporated into their courses.
