Knowing what kind of job you would like will really help you in finding your ideal job and will make the process a whole lot easier.

To find out what job you would like to have ideally is definitely a journey which will take a lot of time and effort. You may have to apply to jobs that you don’t want to just to get that experience to land your dream job.

To find out what job would suit you, you would ideally be looking into this at a young age. When you are at school, ask teachers about jobs and which sector they think you would be good at. If you like the sound of what they are saying, then make a mental note of this and pursue it in the future. If not, then still think about it and look for other sectors which might tickle your fancy.

Another good way to know which job you would be happy in is to do internships or placements. This will allow you to pick out which parts of the internship/placement you enjoy and which you want to steer clear from. I utilized internships to kind of gauge what I liked to do and what I wanted in my ideal job. Getting that hands on experience not only looks good on your CV but it also allows you to pinpoint what kind of worker you are and this will definitely help when job hunting.

Do loads of research on the internet and just look at job sites to see what kind of jobs you like the sound of and which jobs you absolutely hate. You may want to do manual labour and so you may want to look at jobs such as construction, parcel sorting etc. Some of you may want to look into the teaching route.

Whatever it may be, if you do enough research, you will more or less know the job you want to have in the future. If you don’t know the job you want after all this research, you will definitely know the sector you want to go into or the aspects of a job which you really like. From here, you can ask friends and family if they know of any jobs which you may be good at.

Knowing which job suits you will definitely help you because it will allow you to be happy from the very first moment you step into the job industry. There are many individuals who have to go from one dead end job to another just to rack up that experience to land their dream job. If you could skip that horrible process and go right into your ideal job, then you would be one of the lucky ones.

  1. The best thing that can happen to us is to have a job that we like. To be upset is to do our job badly and we will not do it well. It is important to read it so as not to make mistakes and have a guide for it, since it will alleviate our choice. Very good your entrance.

    • This is absolutely correct. We need to find a job which we enjoy, that is the only way we will grow. Thanks for reading πŸ™πŸ“–

    • You are right. It’s very hard to find jobs, period. That is why you must do research so that you have an advantage over your competitors

  2. For what I believe, we arent meant for just one ideal job for the rest of our life but I think it is important to ask ourself few questions , especially in our early age. First what am I interested in ,what am I good at and what is imortant to me. It s important to direct our future job to what is already meaningful to us in order for us to enjoy what we are doing and grow in that area. We can be more productive as well like this.

  3. Great advice. It’s always good to plan ahead of time to land on a desired job. In my own time, students ‘marketable’ courses of study . A course capable of landing one in good paying jobs other than liked jobs. I studies the course I hated to for this reason and was left with the job I hated. I had to take some other course in the career I love but wished I had followed that career part.

  4. “There are many individuals who have to go from one dead end job to another just to rack up that experience to land their dream job. If you could skip that horrible process and go right into your ideal job, then you would be one of the lucky ones.” That’s true. But usually the process is iterative. And it’s also not bad – gradually find a job of your dreams.

  5. I was 40 before I worked at a job I enjoyed, and I landed it by chance. I think most people, at least when first entering the work force, have to take what they can get. And hopefully, with time and experience, find their niche.

    • Yeah, me and my colleague were actually talking about this. He says that luck is a huge factor when looking for a good job and I agree

  6. This has been an ongoing thing for me my whole life.
    I just turned 45 and I am in the midst of a major career change. Like MAJOR lol….
    I guess in retrospect I would tell people to make sure they choose a career path that resonates with them 100% and that they aren’t making choices based on what others want for them. When I was younger I didn’t pick a career path that resonated with me – I chose something that was ‘safe’ and in accordance to my families wishes. I regret that now, but the good news is that I am now making steps to change careers to do something that will fulfill me.

    Follow your dreams and your gut!

  7. As one who is now retired, I can say I would not want to be in the work force these days. When I was hired to my last job (38 years 7 months), I was told of the job by my then current supervisor (saying I was wasting my time with his company and could do so much better at the new job opportunity), there were no computer apps with algorithms screening me into a neat little pigeon hole. I got to apply face to face and make my best pitch. I was offered the job on the spot and when i hesitated, the interviewer encouraged me to take it. I worked my A off, sometimes working 18 hour days and once working 37 days straight without a day off. I never said no. I went through 8 reorgs, including having to reapply for the job I had been doing for 25 years, turned down 2 moves and was told I would eventually have to move anyway. I went from an entry level position being supervised by a Manager of a one region province (67 branches) to managing 3 people and looking after 4 provinces and 250 branches). I never had to take a move. Did I always like my job or the people managing me? Hell No! Some of them were pretty awful. But, I knew what I had to do to survive and get the best promotion I ever worked for…. Retirement! I am told these careers no longer exist. Pity! They build skills and character and at this point I do not regret a moment. Happy job hunting everyone. Allan
