Here at Citirecruit, we understand the importance of finding a career you love and can see yourself doing for the long term. It can be difficult to find the exact match for you, which is why sitting down with one of our recruitment consultants to discuss your career options can be the vital first step to securing a job you love.
If you’re completely unsure of your options, the first thing to consider is the experience you have and what about it you did or didn’t enjoy. Narrowing down the parts of work you have enjoyed will help you see potential career paths.
The other important area to consider is what you are actually good at. What are the skills you have developed so far in your academic life or career and how do these play a role in your future pathway? You may be really good at maths, but you don’t necessarily enjoy it; it’s about finding a balance between what you enjoy and what you know.
That’s not to say your skillset is limited to what you currently know. If you find something you want to pursue, but it requires a certain set of skills you don’t yet have, you can look into further training that will help you head in the right direction.
In order to succeed, you need to be ambitious. To get what you want, you need to work for it. It all comes down to your determination and how much you’re willing to put in, in order to get the career you want. This will also be a true test to how much you want it, as you either won’t stop until you reach your goal or give up and realise that maybe that wasn’t the career path for you.
Be honest with yourself. Are you really enjoying your current role? Do you think there could be something else out there fore you? Take those first steps towards finding a career you love by accessing your current situation and whether you really see yourself carrying on. If not, do something about it. It’s important to remember that you don’t have to stay in one place forever if it isn’t right for you.
