With the job market at its most competitive, it seems that people no longer want a job for the sake of having a job. People want PURPOSE. Meaning. Applying for the RIGHT job has never been more important 🙏🏻
Hence why, before submitting your application, you should always ask yourself: “Does this role fit into my life? Will this make me happy? Can this job take me to where I want to be ?”
I have always carefully nurtured my career, in the same way I would have done with my children, have I had been a mother. But life decided differently, my job became my core focus, and making strategic choices were always key.
I was never put off from applying for a specific job, because I didn’t have the right skills (at first). I knew that being passionate, and driven, can overcome anything on the workplace.
I have always found that applying for diverse positions is what led me to grow stronger, and led to having a successful career.
Yes it can be scary to start a new job with a deep learning curve, but from experience, I can assure you that once you get there, it’s never as bad as you think.
All you really need is to be resilient, patient, and to not give up. So next time you look for a job, do me a favour and ask yourself before anything: “Does this job light me up?” If the answer is yes, then you know what to do next 😉
