9 tips for job seekers to win their dream job

These tips have been made accessible so that you can apply them right away:

  • 1. Know thyself

Identify what really interests and excites you. Understand that these traits define you and use them to explore career choices and opportunities.

  • 2. Take a career assessment test

There are a lot of career assessment tests available online. Find the time to take one. The trial gives you a lot of insights about your core competencies and work preferences.

  • 3. Ask others

It’s actually quite challenging to see yourself as others do. It would be to your advantage to ask friends and family on your traits and skills. Your co-workers are also a good source of information. Knowing how they perceive you, what they like and don’t like about you and what skills or traits that need to be changed can help determine your professional profile.

  • 4. What moves you?

Would you be more interested in status or a six-figure salary? Do you want to make a difference in your community and the world or just on your company’s net worth?

  • 5. Take charge

In the ‘80s, when you worked for a large company, you usually could conclude that you would be working there for your entire career.  In those days, the corporation drove your career path, advancing as it saw fit.

At the turn of the century, times have changed.  In the span of your career, you would probably work for at least five companies. In most cases, you will probably work for more than five.  Know which career track you desire, and make sure that track brings you to where you wish to go.

  • 6. Determine the company fit

With the current emphasis on streamlined and productivity-focused companies, the cultural and company fit are just as important as the professional goals. Consider the values and principles of the company and compare them with your own.  It is essential that you feel comfortable and fit in with the company.

  • 7. Free your mind

The career path you choose is about change and more change. It includes expansion and new opportunities. All of these changes require a desire to journey and discover.

  • 8. Balance is the key

A considerable amount of time is devoted to your career when you are in your 20s and 30s. When you reach your 40s, your personal life might take precedence and maybe more relevant to you. Find a corporation that will provide you with a balance in your work and your life.

  • 9. Don’t hang around

If you’re not satisfied with the way your career is going, go do something. Always be in control of your career path to have a satisfying career.
