Are you in the right career?


Many of us stroll through life and end up with careers that perhaps don't suit our personality or our purpose. Instead of exploring this, we tend to just keep going and continue doing what we know. rather than seeking out what we love. But what if, seeking out what you would love to do, gave you more joy in your life. You don't have to leave your current role to explore career paths, there are always ways around this. Find Work that you love

  • Make a list of your strengths and interests, and how they could translate to an inspiring career – get creative!

  • Research the career options you’ve narrowed down. Gather information about the paths you’re considering and how they could influence and shape your long-term goals.

  • Reach out to professionals working in your field – people who can give you information, support, and/or guidance.

  • Join professional organisations to create authentic connections and make yourself visible as an expert in your field.

  • Contact prospective employers to learn about potential career opportunities. Be professional and enthusiastic, and remember that even if a company isn’t hiring, it’s never a bad idea to pass your resume along.

  • Be patient – finding a new career that you love may take time, and you might try a few different positions before finding an ideal fit.

Love the work you do

  • Request to work on projects that interest you. Voice your interests to your employer – it’s often the same area you’ll produce the best results in!

  • Surround yourself with peers and colleagues who are supportive.

  • Accept constructive feedback and work toward improving your weak points.

  • Stay motivated by giving yourself small rewards for accomplishing goals – short massages, long walks, body brushing.

  • Make your office environment/space more attractive – add fresh flowers to your desk, invest in a comfortable chair, and hang up motivating quotes and pictures.

  • If it’s time to transition to another position or company, make sure you continue doing work you love. Seek fresh opportunities that satisfy your desires, and always maintain business relationships with previous employers.
