I am writing a document where I need to describe a decision I’m making that is beneficial both to my finances and to furthering my career. I’m more partial to using two
-lyadverbs to match the rhythm of the rest of the document. The first is obvious: financially. I am struggling with the second: an adverb to describe my career. Professionally came to mind, but that sounds a bit too stiff, and I would like to place the emphasis on the learning opportunity. Is there a more apt word? Or should I drop the
-lywords altogether and try others?
You could use vocationally, if that fits for you (even without the
ly) – but there is no real surrounding context here, we’re going to be putting words in your mouth, so to speak.
