Finding the Right Job

Every young person ready to enter the job market should raise this question “is this a right job for me”?

Professional degree holders such as engineers, doctors, accountants and lawyers would respond more strategically just because during their degree, they are exposed to certain sub-fields to learn in advance of their career search and develop a focus. However, those who have general qualifications usually lack a clear roadmap!

I know that almost 90% careers start without any clear direction!

Such people need to analyse the job market and align their interests as per market needs. During the process, they may need to learn a new skill or attain an additional qualification to succeed in their job search. In my opinion, your first job often does not determine your career path. Richard Branson, Steve Jobs, Jeff Bezos were all did some strange stuff before they became owners of brands such as Virgin, Apple and Amazon. There was one common trait, which was their passion to succeed.

Perhaps one should try to assess personality and skills-set that you are blessed with. If a person is an extrovert and enjoys social recognition, options are wide open in customer service, public relations, media etc. Introverts are special too, they can easily get adjusted into research and desk work. Another interesting thing is about learning while working.

Those who have not heard about The Myer Brigs Personality Test, I recommend them to experiment with this great tool. It is a great tool based on a set of 93 questions and is being used by business leaders across the globe for analysing personalites. The tool is designed to help in discovering the personality types as extraversion, introversion, judging, perceiving and sensing, etc.

The personality evaluation is not only for the people seeking jobs. In the contemporary world, the employers assess people skills, personality traits and abilities based on the personality tools. The tools provide them with an idea about attitude, behaviour and levels of motivation. This is crucial as the business in the modern world demands dynamism. Companies are looking for solution providers and people who can learn quickly to deliver desired results. If you know yourself, showing-off at an interview becomes piece of cake!

Finally, those who have passion to grow and believe in their capabilities are always quick learners and this helps in harnessing the right skillsets to grab the exciting opportunities. My believe is in constant learning, and I know that constant learning can bring constant growth!
