Now, there is a bit of a presumption that there is something! Ok, some folks may need dig deeper than others, here! But like many situations in life, I’m a firm believer that there is always something – something great, that one can apply to the next opportunity!
As I was at the 2008 Leadership Forum and Networking Event this past Friday, there was no shortage for companies that provided jobs to love! This event was pulled together by a great team of folks at BestCompaniesAZ, led by Denise Gredler. To top things off, this event was highlighted by Derrick Hall, the president of the Diamondbacks. Talk about a person passionate for what he is doing! Wow!
Building off of our question, “What do You Love About Your Job?”, this is your launching point in looking at your position. As small or as big as it may be, what “enjoyment factor” can you take with you? This “joy” needs to be the cornerstone of your job search!
As a career and life coach, I see so many folks just going out there and searching what they perceive as the open jobs – the few that are posted. But the big piece missing here is the “what” – what are you looking for? What do you enjoy? What are your passions, abilities, and even hobbies? This is like a road map, you’ve got to have it, if you want the results – a career of your dreams!
Do this little test: keep a log for a week and just jot down what gets you going – what are you passionate about? Let me know how it goes! By hitting the “comment” button below, you can drop me line directly.
