“Looking for a Job is a Full Time Job”

by Mickey Mixon


Finding the best job that suits your personality and your lifestyle is never easy.  It’s actually a full time job itself.  To better understand your needs and increase your chance of succeeding in your chosen field, you need to conduct a personal evaluation.  Is this the career you want?  Is there room for growth?  Are the salary and benefits good?


You can’t really evaluate a position unless you do the research.  From a recent survey in the U.S., graduate degree holders earn an average of 35% to 50%  more than just bachelor’s degree holders.  This is a reason why more and more are taking their Masters.  There could be an offer or two, all you have to do is make an informed decision to ensure the right job for you in the present job market.


Know what you want


Knowing what kind of personality you have and your interests gives you an idea how you would like to spend your day on a job.  The activities you’d like to get involved in plays a great role in keeping you motivated.  You could make a list of the kinds of people you would like to be working with.  Say, people who like being told what to do or authoritative types; how about loud people or quiet types; and would you like a place where people love socializing or not?  There are different sizes of companies; small, medium, large, as well as overseas, local, and regional companies.


The Internet is a valuable tool that assists online job seekers in looking for a job they could fit in.  Trim down the choices depending on your needs and wants to get the more possible pool of companies you can try submitting resumes.


Your major strengths and weaknesses will help indicate how well you will perform in the work you have chosen.  Finding the best job for you is a full time job itself.  Don’t allow yourself to get discouraged. It requires time and passion to get positive results.  No matter what job you choose, it should always be a place where you can identify yourself and remain happy.
