Identify Your Dream Job

Part 1 in a series on How to get your dream job?

The 1st step to find and get a dream job is to identify it.

You should know what your dream job is. Not many people do and still they say that I am not happy with my job or I do not like my boss, ascariasis
colleagues or work.

Unless you know where you want to go, sales it will be hard for you to reach there. So identify your dream job. Here is how to do it.

Think about the work you really enjoy – not because it is simple but because it gives you enough opportunity to learn. Also think about what do you enjoy learning about the most. Look for this action and learning in your dream job.

Q: What makes a dream job?

A: A dream job should help you grow and make you satisfied.

Such growth does not come from doing something that you already know. It comes from learning what you do not know yet. It helps if it is related a bit to your current skill set and experience. But there should not be an exact overlap.

With this understanding, take about 30 minutes to think about your dream job. Once you finish this exercise, list down 10-20 companies that you’d like to work with. Now do a search on big job boards and the websites of these companies for jobs that are already advertised in your area of expertise.

Put all these in a document or spreadsheet so that you will not have to go back to find these. After you have made this list – you need to start working on preparation.

Chances there will some gaps in your skill set and experience based on what is required to do your dream job.

During preparation phase, you will work on filling these gaps and get ready to show your best side to the world.
