Job hunting can be intimidating. Getting nervous about trying something new happens to all of us now and then. But don’t let these excuses stop you from pursuing your goals and landing the job of your dreams.
You might think having a great career takes a certain amount of luck – being in the right place at the right time, or knowing the right people who do the hiring – but that isn’t really the way it works. It’s like the old saying, “Luck is just being prepared for an opportunity.” When you logically build your skills and career, you’ll be the successful candidate. Taking strategic action toward your defined dream job will make you luckier than you ever imagined.
Just Need to Work Harder?
Do you feel you’d be happy in your current role if you only worked harder? Maybe you think things would improve if you worked longer hours? While working hard is often a part of a successful career path, working smart is often more effective. If the job you’re in isn’t fulfilling, you’ll find it difficult to work hard and engage in your job. You’ll find more satisfaction if you’re working in a job that helps you fulfill your passions.
My Current Job is Good Enough
Good enough is never good enough. Good enough eventually leads to dissatisfaction and lack of engagement in your job. Your productivity drops, you become disinterested, the quality of your work begins to slide, and before you know it you’re face-to-face with a supervisor trying to explain your poor performance. To have an active career, you need to do a job that you feel good about; something that makes you feel valued.
If life is what you settle for, why settle for less?
If you’re unhappy with your current position, take a few moments and consider the reasons why. If you start making excuses, don’t worry. Recognizing them is the first step to eliminating them. When you’re honest with yourself you can be more of who you really are. Being your authentic self, especially when you’re looking for a new position, is important. It will help you find a job that’s more aligned with who you are.
