The most confusing phase in anyone’s career is the stage when they have landed a job, but they are unsure if they have chosen the right job. It is really hard to land your dream job even when you are highly talented and have got relevant experience. So, if you have got a job that feels right, and you want to make sure that the new role will prove to be beneficial in your career advancement, we are here to help.
Here are some points to evaluate to make sure that your job is somewhat closer to your dream job:
You love it when someone asks you about your job profile
Whenever someone asks you the question “What do you do?” you can’t stop smiling and start telling them everything about your job. Even when the person could care less, you keep jabbering away about each and every aspect of your job. Your job not only represents what you do but is also an important part of who you are.
You aren’t in Survival mode
People have a tendency to approach work like a battle. They try so hard to somehow survive until the next day. If you aren’t in the survival mode, you have chosen a right job. You should be engaged in your work and love what you do.
You don’t expect every day to be amazing
Sometimes, you will have bad days, but that won’t give you a thought of quitting. Every employee goes through a good phase and a bad phase in their career, but if you are content with your job, you will know that there is no such thing as a ‘perfect job’. Occasionally you might have to work on something that you don’t like or are not interested in, but you won’t let that have an adverse effect on your motivation.
You just want to climb the career ladder that your job offers you
The worst thing that can happen in your job is not having a career path to follow. It is necessary to have career goals, and as you achieve them, set higher goals. Working without goals is boring and monotonous. You need to have a path to look forward to.
If even half of these points are true in your case then you are lucky enough to land a right job.
