If you’re frustrated with how to identify the right job and career for you — you’re not alone.
I’ve met thousands of smart and capable professionals who were confused, parallelized or overwhelmed by the process.
Well, let me tell you something…
… You can get clear on the best job and career options in as fast as 2 or 3 weeks.
Step 1: Identify Your Strongest & Favorite Skills
When you choose a career that uses your strongest and favorite skills, you’re much more likely to love your job and be great at it. Discovering your strongest and favorite skills is one of the most powerful things you can do for your career.
Step 2: Identify Your Innate Talents
Skills and knowledge can be acquired, but our talents are much more innate and instinctual. When we use our talents, we feel content, confident and energized.
Step 3: Identify Appealing Industries
Many people want to have a job and career that feels interesting or exciting. Others want to be in a career field that makes a difference in the world. Some want to be in a position that is prestigious. Many want to work in a field that matches their personal values. An essential step for having a job and career you enjoy is knowing the career fields and industries that best fit you.
Step 4: Name Your Aspirations
It’s important to choose work that helps you achieve your goals and have the quality of life you want to live. In this step, make a list of things you want to do in your lifetime, places you hope to go, skills you’d like to learn or develop, and possessions you’d like to own someday.
Step 5: Learn the Alternate Job & Career Options That Fit You
In the United States, we are fortunate to have thousands of job and career options. With knowledge of your strongest & favorite skills, innate talents, appealing industries and personal aspirations, you are now ready to identify the job and career options that best fit you.
Step 6: Research Your Favorite Options Carefully
I always tell my clients that you don’t want to change from a job situation that’s not working for you to another job situation that’s not going to work for you – it’s exhausting, wastes time and can kill your career momentum. That’s why it’s very important to gather all of the accurate and unbiased information you need so you have confidence that you are choosing the right new job and career path for you.
