It is true that we work for a living. But, if you are really looking for your dream job it’s not going to be monetarily driven. Because, really, if it’s money that motivates you or makes you happy, then what does it matter how you are making it? Instead of worrying about the paycheck, you want to look at your why and focus on why this is your dream job in the first place. Often our dream jobs will be a mix of our skills, interested and values – what makes your heart sing? How would this job make you feel on a regular basis?
If you have to do other jobs as a stepping stone in the meantime, then understand that it’s all part of the process to get to that dream position. The exposure and experience the job gives you is your why in this case. The job will enhance you personally and professionally, making you more competent for your dream job once it’s yours.
Keep a closer eye on your dream companies. Track their employment offers. The best positions are filled before the vacancy list hits the public portal. Set up informational interviews with professionals at those companies, to get your face and name in front of them. Follow them on social media, share their content. You can even ask to guest post on their blog. Keep tracking them constantly and make a few contacts. Show how passionate you are to get into the organization and do not hesitate to show off your skills.
You may not be monetarily driven but, always remember why you want this job. Explain and reiterate to yourself how much you need this job. Make sure the others around you realize your worth and passion for it. Have distinctive goals and try to be out of the box. Implement your course of action appropriately.
Make sure you have a look at the job requirements and work on those skills you haven’t acquired yet. You can make up for the experience with expertise. Stay up to date and keeping abreast with the advancements help. Make an attractive resume and get into the interview with realistic thoughts, dreams and feasible demands.
Focus and dream. Strive to make your dream a reality because it 10% is idea and 90% is execution. People who achieve are better in executing their idea rather than having a lot of capability. Getting a dream job is not a dream after all.
