What would be the best Latin word(s) for "career", to be used together with a specification such as "academic", "military", or "industrial"? The Roman phrase cursus honorum might refer too specifically to the sequence of public offices (perhaps closer to "political career" than "career"), but that is up to debate. Another related concept, curriculum vitae, refers to a specific kind of document, not the career itself. The most suitable words I could think of are curriculum, decursus, and cursus, but I may be missing some good options.
I am currently inclined towards cursus academicus/militaris/industrialis. (I don't know whether industria is a good word for "industry". If anyone is interested, please take it to a separate question. You can also ask and answer yourself!) What do you suggest for "career" and why?
