Career. It is a big word. It can be a word that gives you great happiness, or in contrast, give great dread. There are thousands, hundreds of thousands of careers out there that you can try and make your mark on, but finding the perfect career can be tough. Are you looking to change your current job? Or are you new to the world of work, and trying to find your way? Let this article be the start of helping you get your feet on the ground when it comes to finding the career of your dreams this year!
Changing Jobs can be tough
When you are currently in a job that you don’t enjoy, it can be daunting even thinking of jumping ship to something new, especially if it has been your job for a while. Things may be a little stagnant in your job, progression may be slow, or your passion for the job just isn’t there, and you wish to do something you really enjoy. You have to be prepared to take on many risks, moving ahead in your career is not an easy thing, but the reward at the end is worth every bit of effort to get there. We only live one life, and wasting it on something that you really do not enjoy, is not the best way to fill it! Take the risks, and take the plunge if you really feel you can and have the power to do it, long term you feel much better for doing it!
Where to Search?
There are many places you can search for that next chapter in your life. You can look online, asking friends who may be in the industry that you want to go into can also be a great way of getting your foot into the door. People hire people, not resumes, so if you can get a personal recommendation from someone in the company already, that could really boost your chances of successfully going into the career of your dreams!
Advice on Career Searching or Building
The first piece of advice is to not get downhearted with rejections. It could take hundreds of rejections to get the perfect yes. Do not give up after a little while of searching. Some people could be searching for a few months, whilst on the other hand, some people can be searching for years, but like said previously in the article, it is all worth it if you land your dream job. Also, it is a personal search. Do not go by the example of others when it comes to searching for jobs. Obviously taking proven advice is always welcome, but your search is completely dependent on your personal needs. Is your job going to be a work from home or an office job? It is 9 to 5 or it is a shift working job? Will it require traveling? Relocating? All of these are factors when coming to find your perfect job.
What Career Suits You?
So, do you feel a little better? Don’t give up, life is for the taking, don’t limit yourself, search for the job or career of your dreams, and take it with both hands! Good luck!
