How To Find Your Dream Job
Why is it that your dream job is still just a dream?
Here are 3 reasons that could actually be holding you back from landing that dream job:
Reason #1: “I Can’t Do It”
This is when you feel you are either too underqualified or inexperienced to get that dream job. The biggest thing that can come in the way of your dream job is the lack of self-belief. The times have changed. Today, your skill sets and your ability to perform are much more significant than your grades, qualifications and experience. So, don’t stop yourself. Time is precious. Look out for opportunities and go for it!
Reason #2: “I’ll Never Find My Dream Job”
Many of us look at our dream job, or the idea of it, as this great job that lies far into the future for us. It’s too dream-like to feel real and achievable. However, it’s important to realise that the dream job is a journey, not a destination. Instead of looking for a single, specific “dream job”, identify a career that satisfies your creative urges and makes use of your skills and abilities. From there on, it is a journey to success.
Reason #3: Using Traditional Job-Seeking Strategies
The facts are stark and simple. Only 1% of traditional CVs lead to a job offer. And about 70% of people are unhappy in their current jobs and seek something different. So, it’s fairly obvious that traditional job-seeking strategies don’t work. To land your dream job and to get the attention of a great company, you will have to make use of something smarter than the CV.
Something as simple as changing the way you think about your dream job can take you so much closer to finding it. Just because it is a ‘dream job’ does not mean that it can’t be your reality!
