Choosing the Right Career Path

What do you want to be when you grow up?  This can be one of the most perplexing questions a child is asked, and that question follows many of us into adulthood. Whether you’re a recent graduate, have been laid off, or simply seeking new opportunities, discovering the right career path can be a major challenge. This being said, there is a lot of truth in the statement “If you love what you do, you’ll never work a day in your life.”

  1. Say to yourself: I love to______. Really think about what makes you happy, and what you love to do. There’s a good possibility that what you’re passionate about could be found in a job somewhere.
  2. What are you good at? If someone asked your friends and family what your best skills and attributes are, what would they say? There might be a job related to one of your greatest strengths that you might never have thought about!
  3. How and what do you want to be remembered for? This is an important question to ponder, because most people are remembered for what they did and what they were passionate about.

After you’ve asked yourself these three questions, look back at your answers. Do you love to help people and give direction? A job in HR could be perfect for you, it gives you the ability to create relationships and guide employees throughout their careers. Are you good with software, and known as the most creative one in your family? Are you a Kinesthetic leaner? What about a career in engineering? Finally, maybe you want to be remembered for your exceptional people skills and work ethic. That could mean that you would make an exceptional member of a sales team!

When determining what career is right for you, don’t make your decision hastily. Take your time and determine what’s important to you, your life, and your goals. Search job posting sites, take a personality test, or ask for a conversation with a recruiter from our team to see what positions they think would match your talents. Choosing the right career takes time and effort, but it leads to a fulfilling and overall happier life!
