The career world can be an overwhelming place. However, we are all part of it in some way.
A lot of people have a straight focus and a goal since they been a child and aim for it till they archive it.
Others are more floating and are not so sure what to do. That’s ok, sometimes not to know can be an exciting journey in a personal or professional environment. Don’t be scared.
If you are still finding out where you belong make sure you get to know yourself better first. Considering everything around you, your personal and professional skills.
Take notes of your improvement areas – the good old flaws and habits.
You can use both to your advantage, if you view your let’s say flaws compering to your existing skill set you can already identify in which area you can develop.
In terms of the right industry sector make sure that both sides fit into the chosen industry, this will motivate your progress, there is no point to choose a path just based on your grades from school and college. You have to bring a certain passion with you, something that will keep you on your toes even if you have a not so good day.
This will help you to enter your desired sector and is a selling point when you are getting to an interview stage, you can already bring a strong skill set and also eager to develop further.
It is sometimes underestimated when you enter an Interview how much your personal skills set is as important as your professional background, are you suitable for team work? Individual Projects? How do you approach a challenge?
You need to be sure that you are aware of the role and its requirements such as the company environment, if you choose a career path based on this it will be easier to enter, as you will be natural in your interview process rather then trying to convince yourself to something you don’t really would like to do and most important you are not reflecting as a real being.
The modern world is more open to different career backgrounds – Uniqueness became an ongoing trend. Employees view your CV based on the skill set for the role you applied for but never less they look at the bigger picture, educational background and qualifications such as your personality, and point of views.
Sometimes we tend to doubt when applying for a role as we are not sure if the company would even consider us, but if you can you use your experience in the relevant role it’s doesn’t matter if you have been working in different environments, this an overall view, it will defiantly be different in certain individual industry which there is no option to enter without the professional education.
Let’s take a bilingual job, for example, you are on a win-win side when you speak more the one language, the global industry is growing and therefore looking across the world always for bilingual speakers. This also allows you to experience different industry sectors in which you gain a wide skill set. Which will help you going further? – Don’t be shy, just try.
Courage is a small word with big meaning.
