Have you ever questioned yourself if you are on the right career path or not? How will you choose the right job when there are thousands of choices? Actually you have been so engrossed with your current job that you have not spent an hour to think about what you would rather be doing. And the moment you start to think about it, your mind morphs into an overly hazy mess. I have been in this kind of situation too but the day when I found what I was looking for; since then I am spending time by coaching friends and colleagues who are going through the same thing. The challenge may seem insurmountable if you have no clue about what you want to do. The only way out is to put enough thought into it, and eventually you will be able to boost your decision-making opportunities.
First step is to start thinking about what you are good at and what kind of works you like doing in your free time. Do you like writing? Are you good at interacting with different kinds of people? Do you have strong interpersonal skills? Do you like teaching? Answer to all these questions can guide you in your career search. All you need to do is to do some research in order to connect the dots.
It is always very important to be in touch with your values while choosing the right job. You need to get a clear vision about what you want from life. Want to settle overseas? Have plans to make a lot of money? What’s more important to you– your family or your dreams? These questions will also play a crucial role in the career possibilities that fit you.
Your choice of a right job will play a significant part in determining your income, status within your society, chances of achievement, circle of friends, and even your life partner. The profession you choose will help in shaping your sense of self-worth and identity. By using personal awareness techniques and peer assessment surveys, you should be able to identify your skills, values, and needs. The next step is to review and search for the various sources of occupation that matches your interests and select the best occupation to pursue. At this stage, don’t worry about making an ultimate choice. However, it is not possible to determine if a job is right for you unless you try doing it and there are multiple ways to do it. You can do a part-time job within your selected domain. Finally, if you find it appropriate you should be able to find a right job in your selected domain.
