How to Discover Your Dream Job.

How to Discover Your Dream Job.

by Mallory Brock, on July 27, 2021
Are you are motivated to find your dream job, but unsure how to start a search? If so, you have the advantage right now as the market has more jobs to choose from than ever before. To find your dream job, it is important to set goals and know what you’re looking for. Where do you see yourself at the end of the year? What can you do to get there? Answering these questions can help you visualize the steps for landing your dream job and all the benefits that come with it.

Know What You Enjoy
Think about the jobs or experiences you’ve had in the past. Experience is key for knowing what area of expertise you enjoy and want to advance your skills in. Plus, your application will stand out if you have experience related to the job you’re applying for.

Don’t worry if you don’t have any previous job experience. There are other ways to determine your likes and dislikes when it comes to a job. To get a feel for a career you think you would like, consider working temporary positions. You may find that the temp job is a great fit, or it could surprise you by being different from what you thought. Either way, you get valuable experience to build your resume.

It is also important to reflect on your personal hobbies, interests and any previous volunteer or internship experience to determine if you have transferrable skills that could lead to a job you would enjoy.

If you have interest in a specific role or industry, but lack experience, it’s a good idea to talk to someone in the field or research online to get a better idea of what the job is like. If the job you are interested in requires skills, qualifications, or certifications that you don’t have, you will want to gather information about local or online resources that will help you gain what’s needed to land your dream job.

Don’t Lose Hope
It is normal to feel discouraged if you're consistently applying to jobs with no success. Just stay positive and know that each application is a step closer to your dream job.
