Choosing a Career/Changing a Career – Part 1
Many people can’t seem to get their careers off the ground. Others have seen their careers reach a certain point and stall. These are some pointers that will help you choose a job or a career:
- If you want to feel a sense of satisfaction and fulfillment about the job you are doing on a daily basis, choose a job or a career that enables you to do what you love doing naturally. When you are doing what you love and enjoy, your job is likely to be a happy and fulfilling experience.
- Evaluate your own skills and talents. A job that enables you to use your intrinsic talent is probably the best career you can choose.
- Do some research on the companies that you are considering joining. Is it a company or business that is over a hundred years old or one that is a decade old? What is the company’s culture? What is their reputation for promotion from within, recognition and rewards or for growing employee talent? These are important issues to consider if you want a job that will bring satisfaction and fulfillment.
