5 tips leading to self-career discovery
These things can be a certain subject which you studied at school, a hobby or even a favorite DIY (do-it-yourself) project. These things should be so captivating for you that you lose track of time whenever you are doing them. List out all such activities and then try to figure out the similarities between all the things which you love. This will help you in pinpointing the fields and areas of interest which overlap with your passion and vice versa. You must have also noticed that most of the people who love their job have worked in different careers for some years beforehand.
Analyze the things that you love
Analyze yourself for the strengths that you may think you have and also ask around for your family members and friends. Sometimes the people around you are more aware of your strengths than you are.
Life changing moments
Everyone experiences some incidents, events, accidents in their life which change the way they look at life and also have a profound effect on who they consider themselves as a person. Amongst those events, there must be some which you are happy about and which made you the person you are today. You can cross-examine those events to get to know why you are thankful for those experiences and can eventually let you know of the career path which is related to that.
Do you know yourself? How well? Start by jotting down your traits as a person which you consider as your strengths. You can also incorporate your family and friends in the process since in many cases the people who are close to us know us thoroughly well as compared to ourselves. Once that description of you is complete then you can carry on figuring out a career path which fits your description of yourself fairly well.
Define your weaknesses and strengths
Your strengths and weaknesses tell a lot about you then you can ever imagine. Make a list of at least five strengths which you think are your stronger suit and in order to balance that out making a list of your weaknesses as well. This will help you make an informed decision because you can find a career which requires the skills which are matching with your strengths. You can so steer clear of the careers which require the skills mostly concerned with your weaknesses.
Broaden your choice of careers
Never hesitate to learn more about the careers which you don’t know about such as geologists, renewable energy consultant, biomedical engineer etcetera. You can always find more about these careers and much more like these at our website or from the internet of things. Never limit your choice of careers to a few just because you don’t know enough about a certain career. The list of careers which you narrow down for yourself can be as vast and vary in nature as you want. You can be a tour guide to an architect designing skyscrapers. The world is full of endless possibilities.
