Getting Started with Your Dream Career
You are in need of a change, you know, something really important that needs to happen in your life. You’ve done all the thinking about it, you’ve planned it out and now it’s time to take action. But what exactly should you do? Where should you start? How to find your dream career? Well, these questions and much more are answered below!
If you’re looking for a new career – or simply trying to achieve a new level of success with what you already have – finding good career advice can be tough. Most people, when looking for a new career, will consult the same people who’ve been successful at what they are trying to accomplish. On rare occasions, with a few of the more senior management also along for the ride.
But, what happens when YOU get to the end of the rope and want a change? You start by asking yourself a few questions: Do I have the key skill sets required for achieving my goals? Do I have the perseverance to stick it out? Do I have the energy? Are my relationships with those like me strong enough to withstand obstacles and keep me on track? These are all the ingredients that make up the recipe for finding your dream career and once you have them, you can pretty much know that you’ve found them!
The next thing that most people looking for good career advice forget is that they need to first find the right “field” to enter. If you are struggling to break into the industry you want, how do you know that you have found the right one? How do you know that you will be able to make it as a “good one” if you don’t take the time to really look at each industry and see what the field has to offer you? This is an important question and it’s one that you must ask yourself (and your manager) early in the process. Once you know what your options are, you can move on to determining what type of career you can be successful at.
Once you know what you are passionate about and what you plan to do with your new career, you need to take the time to really figure out what you have to offer prospective employers. This is the hardest part. You might not think that there are things that you can sell to employers, but then again, no one has ever succeeded without knowing that they have something unique to offer. One of the best ways to sell your abilities and passions to future employers is to write down some sample tasks or projects that you have completed in the past. These can help you put out there a little bit of who you are and what you have done.
One of the most important things about your dreams is that they should match your needs. If you know exactly what you are looking for in a new career, you are more likely to find it. To this end, you may want to get some professional help. There are many great career coaches around who can help you discover your true passions. This can help to provide the direction and focus you need to make your dreams become a reality.
