Finding the right job for yourself
It’s important the nature of the job fits your personality and salary requirements, otherwise, you’ll have spent a significant amount of time to find a day job you dread getting up for every morning.So be realistic about what you expect, but be open to what you explore.
It’s always good to have your passion and expected happiness guide your job choice. But if passion and expected happiness can’t be your guides, you can begin by choosing a career that fits well with your skills and values.
Here’s what you can do:
- Firstly, get to know yourself – your strengths, values, interests, and ambitions.
- Make a list of all of your skills, determine which kinds of businesses and industries need them most (ask around for advice if you need to) and find businesses that will benefit from having you and your skills around.
- Next, do your research on your chosen job – make sure you know as much as you can about what the job’s really like and if it’s the right job for you.
- Finally, get some advice from a professional – there might be other options or funding schemes open to you that you didn’t know about. And it always helps to have someone impartial as a sounding board to check if you’re doing the right thing.
