What You Need To Do Before Even Think Of Looking
For A Job
Ever wonder why some
people are happy in their jobs and some people are not. Aren't you curious why
some people simply love their jobs and can work all the time while you are
dragging your body to wake up each morning to work? Maybe you think they are
faking their enthusiasm and deep down in their heart they are like you who only
look forward to 5 p.m. everyday. Sure, everybody got their ups and downs. But
their ups seems to be far exceeding your downs in your job and they seem to be
smiling every other day. Let me show you part of their secret for being happy
with their job.
By now, anyone who
has read books or research on finding jobs will find a beginning favourite Job
Tip on every human resource author's lips or books. What am I talking about ?
That's right, Job Fit or Job Match. Every good human resource article or book
has been harping on job fit or job match before even looking for a job. It has
become so trendy and fashionable for every book or article to state this before
embarking further. Sometimes, one get tired of the message and ignored it
totally. Chances are most people do not even think that it is important. Maybe
some do not have the luxury to choose what type of jobs that will fit them
Whatever the case
maybe for not thinking of finding a job that fits you perfectly, it is still a
very important stepping stone towards your happiness in your job and long term
career plan. Just pause and consider this few questions. Would you go to a war
in a terrain without any maps given a map can be obtained easy? Or would you
drive in a foreign country without any road maps? Think and consider what are
the chances of your success of finding your way to your desired destination
without any road maps? Would you like to go in circles and keep stopping and
asking people for directions? Imagine how much time and efforts are saved with a
road map in your hand!
Ever had a friend who
seems to be always resigning and changing jobs? Looking a little bit lost career
wise and appears to be like a fish swimming in circles? While another of your
friend seems to be having the world at his feet and moving very rapid in his
career. Sure, your successful friend may be lucky or blessed with good looks.
Might it be possible that your friend has that little bit of advantage of the
knowledge that helps him what he is today. Bet, he will not tell you how he did
Not convinced of
understanding the importance of job fit and match. How about you try to go and
meet your friend wearing a very ill-fitting and not matching colour shirts and
pants? Would you look like a fool and a clown with mismatched attire?
Still confused what
is the Job Tip that I am presenting to you? Yes, You got it. What you need is a
road map of yourself, the type of jobs desired that will fit you and what you
wanted or always dreamed to be. Don't be like all the ignorant majority; who too
read the human resource books or articles about job fit or job match but sadly
they do not truly follow. They just read for the sake of reading or reading for
the sake of showing to others that they are reading.
Get the distinct
advantage that I have presented by making you seriously consider a road map of
job fit and job match for yourself for total happiness and a excellent career
forward. You are already one up on the rest when you pause and seriously
consider what I told you. Most people don't. They just read through and never
bother a second thought. Or maybe most authors are not marketers like me who
knows very well how to present a point across that makes you sit up or should I
say : "Why didn't I realise that?".
If you religiously
and seriously dissect my words, you would be puzzled why did I mention excellent
career forward in the earlier paragraph. Mmm, why did the author say a excellent
career forward for people who listen to him?. What does he want me to see?
Very simply, a happy
person in a desired job is excellent productivity and unmatched enthusiasms. I
would literally need to drag you away from your job or work or "leisure". You
loved what you are doing so much that you would call your job or work as your
leisure or hobby. And most likely, a happy person in their job will be wondering
: Huh, what overtime is everybody talking about?.
Now, you see the
power of being happy in your job and an excellent career forward. All this
begins with a very humble job fit and job match tip. Don't just read like every
others do, pause and sit back and think once in a while. Or maybe go find a
better book that is written like a true marketer who can bring the point across
and knock it into readers head. Can't blame most authors; they are authors with
great ideas. They need people like me to drill it into people or else I too got
no job. Just kidding.
Anyway, now that you
have been sufficiently trained to hold a rifle, you can now poise and bluff the
enemy. The loading of bullets and firing of rifle will be reserved for next
article. Enjoy bluffing the enemy for now.
