Many of us have been collectively holding our breath waiting on the job market to improve. Now that 2021 is here, we must come to the realization that the current employment demands are on par with those of 2020. If you have been procrastinating on finding a new job because you are unemployed or are looking to find a new career that is more satisfying, now is the time to get started. Alexander Graham Bell, the father of the telephone said, “the only difference between success and failure is the ability to take action.” Don’t let pandemic setbacks deter you from finding a satisfying career.
There are many steps you can take to shake the proverbial dust off and get busy finding your new dream job. You can start by taking a self-inventory to see exactly what your dream job looks like. Now is also the time to do some soul searching to identify your skill sets. You might want to be a sous chef but not be able to boil water. However, you might have an engaging personality and the ability to organize which might better be a better fit for being an administrative assistant instead of a sous chef. Also, the hospitality industry is one of the industries that the pandemic has taken its toll on. Do your research to identify the industries that are thriving in the pandemic.
You owe it to yourself to find a role that is exciting and inspiring; however, most of us do not fall into our dream jobs on our first try. Look at companies where there is growth and opportunity. You might have to take a position that you are over qualified for to work for a company where you will have the ability to move up. Don’t let a job title deter you from working for a company that you will find rewarding.
