Happy Tuesday Jobcasers, I hope your searches and interviews are successful this week! So, finding a job that makes you happy.. Might seem like a pretty easy thing, right? Unfortunately not all the time as we often get caught up in just finding a job and not taking the time to wait for the right one. I know what you’re thinking, sometimes you just really need to get back to work and you can’t wait or take your time. I understand that completely and this may not apply to all situations but still take a look for your future job searches! Here we go: It needs to be about the people too - Sitting back and thinking about how much time you spend with your coworkers, you should know that you’ll want to work with people that you “like”. And by “like” I mean you want to find people whose company you enjoy, and who you’ll like working next to day after day. You also want these people to help you continue to be better, and that can challenge you to do your best work possible. Take your time (if you can) - When you find yourself in the midst of a job search try to take your time and do some research to make sure you are going to a company that allows you do the work you enjoy. Be confident in knowing what you want - Try to take the time, at the beginning of your search, to sit down and really determine what it is that you want and what matters the most to you. This is definitely not one-size-fits-all so make sure you create your own unique list of what your requirements. Remember, this is all about YOU - I’m sure you have people to take into consideration when you’re deciding on a job, it could be family, or commute, or the hours, etc. But don’t lose sight of this being all about you and your job. I’m not saying completely ignore the above reasons, I’m just saying make sure you’re making the best decisions for yourself and not sacrificing what you really want to do. One of my favorite quotes, or motivational sayings, is “Life isn’t a dress rehearsal” so go out there and find what makes YOU happy.
And again, I know this situation is not the same for each of you and is not a one-size-fits-all approach but I hope it at least gives some things to think about. Have a great day and good luck!
