Find a job you love and you’ll never have to work again.

Find a job you love and you’ll never have to work again.

 

Let’s face it we spend more time at work than we do with our families and  friends.  So it’s important to find the right job.  When we speak to students about applying for their first step on the career ladder, we use a dating analogy.

 

Applications/Getting a date: You wouldn’t go out with everyone in the nightclub (being polite here) just in case Mr or Mrs Right was amongst them.  So don’t apply for every job – do your research – figure out which is your type of job.

 

Interviews/1st date: Can be like 1st dates.  Both you and the interviewer are out to impress.  So make sure you can/want to deliver on whatever you promise.  If you pretend to be someone you’re not at the interview and you get the job, you’ve got a lot to keep up when you start.

 

Job offers/Proposals: You wouldn’t marry someone just because they asked you, would you?  So makes sure when that job offer comes through, it’s what you want before you accept.

 

Starting the job/Moving in together: Understand the ground rules, what’s expected of you, what do you expect from them? When you enter a relationship with someone, you make sure you want the same things – house, car, holidays, children – don’t you?

 

Happy Valentine’s Day for Friday and here’s to finding the love of your career.
