Tips On Finding The Perfect Occupation
For some, finding their ideal career is like meeting the love of their life. They simply recognize it when they come across it. For most of us, again, it’s like finding the love of our lives; extremely elusive and very hard to find. But with the correct guidance, anything can be found; including your ideal career. Here are a few of our tips on how to find the occupation that suits you to perfection.
- Find out what interests you – you’d be surprised at how many young adults actually have no clue as to what interests them. More often than not, they’ve allowed their friends’ interests and parents interest to set a guide line to their own interests. So take the time to think about what really interests you. What intrigues your brain and makes your heart race? Find out if there can be a career path based off this interest.
- Evaluate your strengths and weaknesses – whether it’s for a job search or not, it’s vital that you know your own strengths and weaknesses. Are you a team player? Or a solo player? Do you make your own decisions? Do you prefer having someone else making it for you? How well do you follow instructions? Ask yourself these questions before choosing any career.
- Know how big your dreams are – and by how big, we mean how expensive they are, and how willing you are to meet those expenses. For example, if you want to have a popping social life while living in a huge and flashy home, driving around on expensive cars; your dreams are pretty expensive. To reach such dreams, you’ll have to work smart and find the correct jobs in Auckland that’ll pay accordingly. There might even be a chance you’ll have to go back to school to hone your skills and get your qualifications and education expanded. Are you ready to meet all that that will entitle?
- Have a trial; try an internship program – who says there are no trials in the business world? If you’re still in college and pretty sure you’ve selected your career path, then it’s a great time to start looking for internship programs in said career path. If you get lucky, you might even get a chance to work in your “dream company”!
- If all fails, hire a professional – despite all the above, if you still fin that you’re confused and maybe a little more that lost; that’s completely ok. Not everything will and can fall into place at the same time. Take you time to think it through; it’s worth the time you take. And if by chance you feel you simply cannot wait any longer, get professional help; speak to your college’s career counsellor, or hire a career coach.
