Get started on your new career today!
By now, most of us have come to terms with the fact that we will probably not become astronauts, actors, rock stars, or NFL athletes. Instead, we have opted for more realistic careers and are getting the education we need to become medical assistants, massage therapists, business/administrative professionals, and many more. So what’s next?
We have to decide how we will apply our skills. Finding the right job is not always easy. For many, it can take months or years to find the right fit.
First, get your foot in the door in your field. Employers like to hire people who are already using their skills and actively learning new ones. This may mean you have to accept a “starter” job instead of your dream job up front.
Once you have some solid workforce experience in your field, it is time to go after the job that you really want.
How do you know what job is right for you? You take a career test, of course! CareerPath.com and CareerFitter.com are just some of the many sites offering FREE career aptitude tests. These can help you identify jobs that fit your interests and skill set, and might help you find a dream job that you never knew existed.
