Tips on Finding a Dream Job
So after my blog “Be an Entrepreneur - Do not suppress your career potential!” I received emails from readers suggesting “there are people out there interested in a job career, I should write for them as well!
So I asked myself, what is a dream job?
1. Comes with loads of money?
2. Provides career growth opportunity?
3. Less volatile?
4. Or all three?
Anyone with very basic intelligence would say yes, ALL THREE. I do not think one should not ask for the best, however, without self diagnostic it is not possible to expect all that falling into your lap!
Market forces together with your education, experience, will to accept challenges and your Unique Selling Proposition (USP) that helps you stand out in competition determines what will be your career opportunities.
I highly recommend James Caan’s book “Get the Job You Really Want”. James was born in Pakistan in 1960. Migrated to UK where he changed his identity. He graduated from Advanced Management Program at Harvard Business School, and known for building and selling businesses. He made his fortune in recruitment business “Humana International” with 147 offices in 30 countries.
His book not only addresses the challenges for experienced job seekers, but also provides tools for new market entrants.
Caan says: “It is possible to have the job of your dreams. Together we are going to set about getting you there..”
Enjoy reading and get your dream job.
