What Are Some Examples of Occupational Goals?

An example of an occupational goal is to earn the license or certification necessary to work as a doctor, financial adviser or other professional, according to CareerOneStop from the U.S. Department of Labor, Employment and Training Administration. Upgrading one's skills or specialization in a given field can require setting additional goals, which should continue throughout a career as few jobs last a lifetime, notes Shelagh Dillon for the Houston Chronicle.
