Everyone wants to find a career they love and it’s important to find a career that’s a great personal fit. However, when looking at your options, it can be difficult to pin point which option you’ll enjoy the most. There are a range of factors that will weigh in on your decision from how interested you are in the area to how much you may get paid. To help you navigate your path and discover what career best suits you, here are 5 tips to help you find the career you’ll love.
- Find your passion.
You want to enjoy your career so choose a career that excites you! Make sure it’s something that you are truly passionate about. There’s no point becoming an Accountant if you hated Maths at school!
- Pick a career for you, not somebody else.
Friends and family can offer great advice, however it’s hard to find happiness when your life is dictated by somebody else’s expectations. You deserve to find a career that fits who you are.
- Find your working style and strengths.
A career that is well-matched to you is a career that will suit your work style day in, day out and play to your strengths. Are you a self-starter who thrives on a challenge or are you more of a procrastinator who works well in a structured work environment?
- Think beyond the money.
While money is a considerable deciding factor for your career choice, it shouldn’t be the primary factor. As the saying goes, money can’t buy you happiness. If your salary is your primary criteria for choosing a career, you instantly limit your options and getting to do what you love will be tough.
- Speak to people with experience.
The best way to find out how satisfied you’ll be in a job, is talk to talk people already in the industry. Reach out and ask them about their experiences, you may surprised by what you discover!
