Landing your self that dream job that you love for the rest of your life is perhaps out of most people’s reach. But maybe it’s possible to achieve this for a few months, maybe even years.
Work will become a huge part of your life, and if you don’t enjoy what your doing then you come to hate it given time. Here are a couple things to consider before walking in for that ‘dream job’ interview.
What will make me the most happy at my future job?
The most important thing to think about when considering getting a job is: will it give you purpose? Doing something that you feel is right and meaningful is the ultimate pleasure of getting a job. After all, creating or helping something of somebody everyday is typically what a dream job is all about.
What type of companies should I consider working for?
You need to take into account whether or not you like working one-on-one or with a group of people. You also need to consider your morals and ethics when deciding where to get a job because if you don’t agree with what someone is doing on a moral level then you won’t perform your best and will end up not feeling passionate about what you do.
What type of work should I be doing?
You have to decide that for yourself. You can start out by choosing between human oriented work, knowledge driven work, community centered work, or structure driven labor. Find out if you like to make connections with people or if you like to look at data and compare statistics. Considering these things will be an important factor when deciding where you want to work.
You can either love your job, or you can hate it, and by deeply contemplating what you really want out of your job you can ultimately set yourself up for future success.
