Are You Preparing For Your Dream Job?
Leaping Into The Future
Are you thinking about changing your career? Are you planning on investing a significant investment of time, money or energy going back to school? Are you finally ready to do what you love for the rest of your life?
Laying Down Track
If you want to get a great job or work at your dream job ... you need to lay down the tracks to take you to your destination. And even if you do not know exactly the company or industry you want to work in, you need to start preparing for it.
Taking chances with your future is like gambling against the house with loaded dice. Nothing will ensure you end up where you want to be .. better than a plan and taking the actions you need to get you there.
Building Bricks or Walls
There is a tremendous push by society to have people do the work that needs to be done. Often, that means leading people who have no clue, into filling jobs in demand. And the vocational training can feel like you are either building bricks to pave a path to your future, or being walled off from the life you want.
It all depends on how well you know yourself and the life you want ... making smart choices and working towards it ... and fighting for what is right for you.
Prepare For Your Dream Job
And that plan starts with getting a clear idea of the work you need to do to become the dream candidate. You need to take stock and see clearly where you stand in terms of skills, knowledge experience, attitude compared to where you need them to be.
Once you see the gap, you can start to build a bridge to span it.
Fixing The Dice To Land Where You Want*
To land your dream job (or start your dream business , what you need is a process to acquire all the skills, experience, resources, contacts, industry knowledge, and proven results you will need.
That may mean going to school and letting the university or college dictate the process to give you all the skills, experience, knowledge, work results and contacts to land your dream job.
But .. and it is a big BUT ... what you may lack is the specific skills and experience your dream job requires. Not the generalist background that comes with a basic college degree.
If you already have a college stamp of approval ... you may just need to grab the right work experience, a couple of hands on workshops or take the time to teach yourself the skills you need.
