June 24, 2016

Are you having trouble finding a job that you will enjoy? Then take a look at these 3 simple steps on how to discover a job that you will love:

Reflect

Before you start the job search you should work out what you are good at and identify the things you enjoy. This will give you the basis of the perfect job for you. Your career should be based on something that you enjoy doing and what you are good at. Reflecting on your past experiences can also help with this. Was there a particular job you enjoyed? What interested you about your past role(s)? What qualifications do you hold? By doing this you will be able to recognise what works best with your abilities.

Build you own job post

Write down on paper what your ideal job would be. Give details about what it would entail, your responsibilities, the company you would love to work for and don’t forget to think about where you would like it to be located. You should be specific about every last detail.

Search

With this information you should then perform a job search. You may need to consider a variety of job titles for your chosen career in order for you to get the best results. You should also keep an eye out for vacancies when you’re out. When you have found a job that you are interested in apply for it! Keep on sending applications – the more you send the more chance you have of being asked through to the interview stage and achieving your dream job!
