Tips to Identify and Pursue a Fulfilling Career -Infographic.

You’ve probably heard the old adage: “choose a job you love and you will never have to work a day in your life.” While no one can deny the benefits of choosing a job you’re passionate about, the process of identifying and going after your dream role isn’t always so simple. You need a focused plan to help you get there. Here are tips to identify and pursue a fulfilling career.

Whether you’re searching for your first job or are looking to break out of a career rut and try something new, there are a few steps you can take to give you some direction and increase your chances of landing that special position.

When you’re trying to pinpoint your passions and translate them into a desirable career, it can be helpful to start with some personal reflection.

Ask yourself these questions:

  • What did you love doing as a child? Many of our strongest passions go back to our younger years. Therefore, think about what brought you joy long before you entered the workforce.
  • If money was no object, what career would you choose? Sometimes our job choices are overly influenced by the size of the paycheck we want. Financial security is a necessary part of your career. However, it can be easier to identify roles you’re truly excited about when financial pressures don’t dictate your decision.
  • What is something you enjoy, that you’re also skilled at? The perfect job is usually an intersection between your passions and your skills.

Finding a job you’re truly passionate about might seem daunting, or even impossible. But with some dedicated time and effort, there are always opportunities to determine a more fulfilling career for yourself.
