We all at some point in our lives have to work in a job which we do not enjoy. It is called being an adult, many parents will say to their newly graduated children who are toiling away in minimum wage jobs. However, it does not have to be the career you forge forever. Here at the advertiser.ie we highlight the best ways to find that job that will provide you with contentment.
Think about what excites you
They say if you are doing something you love, you will never work a day in your life and it is true. You should be energised to go to work every day, not dreading it. Now, obviously passion is not the only requirement for a job but it is that passion that will help you push through tough days, leaving you with a sense of contentment when you clock off for the day.
Remember what you are good at
Most people enjoy what they are good at because they can overcome obstacles and succeed. However, if you find that you are struggling to find a career why not base the choice on your personality, "Do what you are; not what you love".
Try an internship
Yes, many internships are unpaid these days, but it is a great way to find out whether the job is suited to you.
Make a career plan
"By failing to prepare, You are preparing to fail" said Benjamin Franklin and when setting out on your job journey you should set out a specific path. Ask yourself what career do I want? What qualifications and experience do I need? How long will this take me?
Never give up
Getting a job is tough, never mind your dream job. Everyone out there is your competition. You will get plenty of knockbacks and closed doors. But all it takes is for one door to open and you are in.
So there you have it. Go chase your dreams.
