Scroll down to get 5 steps closer to the career you’ve always wanted.
1. Networking Is Your Friend
The more people you know in the field you want to work in, the better. You will learn about their experiences, understand what the challenges are, and get exposed to so many things you otherwise wouldn’t have. Overcome your shyness and approach people who could possibly share their expertise mentor you.
2. Shadow A Role Model
Identify one person you idolise, who is living the life you want and doing the work you aspire to do, and literally stalk them on social media. Follow them, see what they’re doing, and try contacting them and set up a meeting.
3. Collect Them Skills
Always remember — no skill is a waste. Everything is a learning experience and you’d be surprised when it would come to use. Enroll in online courses, join different classes, read books about the particular field you’re interested, and even watch movies about it! It will help a lot.
4. Trial And Error
It won’t happen overnight and you will have to work hard towards achieving your goals. Bad internships, cruel bosses, shitty colleagues, pathetic work hours, tiring travel, and so much more will come in the way, but if you really want to be part of a career that enriches your soul, you have to follow this drill. Make mistakes, but learn from them.
5. Be A Pro
You may think that you want a particular job just because it looks fancy. Don’t judge the book by its cover. Go all out and research in depth about what you think you want to do. Jot down the pros and cons, and then decide if you really want to get involved in it. We have heard so many stores where people end up hating what they once loved to do — don’t be one of those.
