What’s Your Dream Job?

 

Find a job you love and you’ll never work a day in your life is what they say.  What I’ve found with some of the people I work with though, is that this is paralyzing.  It’s such a massive task to find your dream job – how on earth will you know what your dream job is? And what if you find something that you think is your dream job and there is something better out there that you don’t know about yet?  So what actually happens is that you end up going round and round in circles, not committing to anything and not really knowing what to do next.

So how about thinking a little bit differently? What about looking into the jobs that are being advertised? Find out where the skills shortages are and focus on the one that you think might suit you best?  This can be hard if you’ve been told all of your life that you must achieve your best.  But thinking that you’re too good to do a job just isn’t a good attitude to have.  If you want to get on in work, one of the most important thing to have is the right attitude.

None of us start at the top, we have to work to get there.  This article highlights that David Potts, CEO of Morrison’s, started out his careers stacking shelves.   Of course, not everyone who starts of stacking shelves will become the CEO of the company. It is the attitude and perseverance of an employee that will be ultimately be rewarded with a promotion.

The jobs market is competitive, so make it a little easier on yourself and choose a vocation that is looking to expand it’s workforce such as care work, construction, cleaning, and call centers.  There are many common misconceptions about these industries, however it is worth researching them to see if any of them suit your values.  This is the most important considerations when thinking about work – do your values match the company you are applying to? If the answer is no, then you won’t thrive in that environment.
