Three Tips for Finding a Job You’ll Love

Three Tips for Finding a Job You’ll Love

Take a moment to picture your ideal career…

Is it the job you’re in now, or were you just daydreaming about greener pastures in another role or company? If it’s the latter, don’t worry. We’ve all been there.

Maybe you’re worried that you don’t have the right skills or experience to get the job you really want, or maybe you’re not even sure about what you want to be doing, but you know it’s not this.

Whatever the reason, we’re here to help. Here are three tips that could help you find a job you’ll love.

Know What You Want (What You Really, Really Want)

It may seem obvious, but having a solid idea of what you want out of your career is the first step to getting there.

It starts with understanding your values, goals, and strengths, and then using that knowledge to reflect on what careers you’ll really find fulfilling. What are your key skills and weaknesses? What tasks do you excel at (or dread doing)? And where do you really see yourself in the future?

Armed with these answers, you’ll feel more confident that your next career move is the right one because it matches not just what you want out of your job but out of your life too.

Do Your Research

One of the most challenging parts of changing jobs or careers is making sure you land in a sector that isn’t in decline. That means digging into current in-demand and stable sectors, such as AI or education, to see where your skills might fit.

It’s also a good idea to look into the companies you’re interested in to see if your values align and if they’re financially stable. You won’t want to jump ship only to find yourself in a company you don’t like – or worse, that could lead to your job being at risk a few months down the line.

Get Networking

The truth is, the word ‘networking’ has become synonymous with things like sweaty palms at awkward social events and DMs from strangers on LinkedIn. But it doesn’t have to be that way.

When you strip it down to its essentials, networking is really about connecting with people who can help you (and vice versa). It could mean going for coffee with a friend to pick their brains about a sector you’re interested in, attending an event and just getting to know people, and yes, DMing semi-strangers on LinkedIn – which can actually be really effective if approached in the right way. Remember to personalize your message.
