Choose a job you love, and you will never have to work a day in your life…

May 11th, 2017

So said Confucius apparently.

Unfortunately he doesn’t give us any info on the best place to start.

What makes a job one that you would love?

A solid place to start is to work out your values.  What are the most important things in your life? What personal code/people/activities keep your energy high, put a bounce in your stride, and a smile on your face?

Once you’ve checked in with your values, you might ask how do my values translate into a job search? The key here is to work out your own personal job spec. in terms of your personal values before you start trawling through the various company specs of job sites, agencies and LinkedIn listings.

Make a list of 3 to 5 values that you want to experience in your future role. These could translate to particular organisational culture, flexible working, challenging work, opportunity to learn and develop, potential for ambition, exposure to entrepeneurial mentors, convenient location… the possibilities are endless, and everyone has their own unique formula for career success and fulfillment.

  • If you feel that you want to make changes but worry that you have gone too far down the rabbit hole of a particular career direction to change…
  • If you want to find a job you love but to do that in the business of day to day life seems too overwhelming…
  • If you want to get clear on your own unique recipe to start a focused search for the job of your dreams…

…Hire a career coach who will help challenge you to to get started on your “working wishlist”. A year from now, you will wish you had started today!

All the best from Park West,
