Listen to the "What do I want to do when I grow up" video intro
Before you do anything about changing jobs – know where you’re headed. Know what type of job you’re targeting.
“Well, I just don’t know what type of job I want to do when I grow up.” I’ve had 60 year old's tell me that.
Sometimes we just go through life, feeling like we are never fully satisfied on what we do. Some people fall into a great job, others are more strategic about it. The goal – As Confucius says – to choose a job you love, and you will never have to work a day in your life.
If you’re not happy in your job, then move to something better. I know that makes logical sense, but how do you know what job will be better for you? There are a number of factors that will influence what type of job is most satisfying for you.
The sad part is that because of the frustration around searching, applying, meeting employers and self-promoting, all with the possibility of ending up in something worse off than where they are now, most people don’t even try. So they stay stuck. But they don’t have to, and you don't either. Go through this vital step properly and you'll end up in a job you love.
With this important step nail, the rest of the process is made much easier.
