How to get the job of your dream


I’ve been searching for the job of my dreams for more than a decade, and I’m still not there yet.

While it feels like there are hundreds of thousands of opportunities out there waiting for me to grab them, it’s important to remember that we all have our own paths and schedules. And while some people might be able to work around their limitations or find ways around obstacles by using shortcuts or whatever other method works best for them—that’s not always how life works! So if you’re in this situation right now (and maybe even if you’re not), here are some tips on how I’ve navigated mine:

Figure out your passions.

When you’re looking for a job, it’s important to figure out what makes you tick. What do you love to do? What do you enjoy doing? What are your natural talents and interests?

In order of importance: hobbies, hobbies and more hobbies! Take some time to think about the things that interest or excite or bring joy into your life. Do they relate at all with the career path that interests you? If so, then there might be some overlap between those things and how certain careers could fit into them (and vice versa).

Clarify your goal.

The first step to getting the job of your dreams is to clarify what it is you want. There are no wrong answers here, but there are some things that can help make the process easier and more fun.

First, know where you want to go. When we’re in the middle of life’s ups and downs, it can be hard not only keep motivated but also stay focused on our goals. One way I’ve found helpful when I’m struggling with this is by making a list of all the places I’ve ever wanted or wished for myself—and then writing down how many days have passed since I thought about them last (or even if they were close). This helps me keep track of my progress because it forces me into action! It also helps fill out my vision as well as reminds me why certain things matter so much at this point in time.”

Find a mentor.

A mentor is someone in the industry who can help you learn about the industry and how to get a foot in the door. A mentor may also be able to connect you with people at their company or organization, which will give you more opportunities than just applying online. Mentors also tend to be very motivated, so if they’re on your side of things it’s pretty much guaranteed that you’ll succeed!

Do what it takes, even when you don’t want to.

You will find yourself doing things that you don’t want to do, but it is important for your career development. In fact, there are many times when you might feel like quitting or avoiding situations altogether because of the fear of failure and embarrassment.

However, if you continue with this attitude of “I don’t want to do this,” then eventually people will stop wanting anything from you. It may seem like a win-lose situation at first—you’ll lose out on opportunities or promotions and maybe even get fired—but remember: if nothing else comes from all your hard work in college (and afterwards), then at least now we know what kind of person we can have working for us!

Ask for feedback and use it to grow.

Ask for feedback and use it to grow.

Feedback is important because it can help you improve, identify your weaknesses, strengths and career path. It’s also a great way to identify career goals that are aligned with the company culture as well as values of the organization.

Don’t worry about what other people think.

Don’t let other people’s opinions of you hold you back.

It’s easy to get caught up in the negative, but it’s important not to let that stop you from doing what makes you happy. You might be worried about being judged by others or wondering if your goals are too big or unrealistic, but don’t worry! There’s no harm in trying new things and learning something new every day—and if they aren’t working out for some reason, then there are plenty more opportunities out there!

Know that you will be doubted.

You will be doubted.

I know this because I have been doubted many times. When I was younger, my father would tell me that he didn’t believe in me or my ability to do anything and that no one else would either. He was wrong: people believed in me—they just didn’t know how much yet! And even though they thought they knew better than him (like all parents), they still supported me by listening when things got hard or when I needed help getting back on track with something important like schoolwork after being sick for several months at a time during elementary school due to illness caused by food allergies as well as other things like asthma attacks so severe that it made breathing difficult at times…

If you’re committed to getting where you want to go, nothing can hold you back.

If you’re committed to getting where you want to go, nothing can hold you back.

Be prepared for a lot of hard work. You’ll need to put in the hours and do things that don’t necessarily appeal to you (but are necessary).

Be prepared for criticism from others—even if they’re family members or friends. You will get negative feedback from time-to-time on your job search efforts and it’s important that this does not deter your motivation or cause discouragement; instead, use it as motivation for future resilience!

Be prepared for failure when applying for jobs; sometimes employers reject candidates without even looking at their resume! But if there is more than one application out there with similar experience under my belt then I’m confident I will be considered because my ability speaks volumes louder than any other factors involved here…


We hope you’ve found this post helpful and inspiring. If you’re committed to getting where you want to go, nothing can hold you back. We wish you luck on your journey!
