What’s your dream job? For some, a dream job has been brewing from a young age. For others, it may be something fairly new or an interest that has been developing over the years. Or maybe you still aren’t quite sure. People might find careers that they have wanted their whole life whereas others end up in jobs that they love that are completely different than their original dream job. Either way, that dream job is out there!
I think that the image below pretty much sums up what most of us would like to find in a job and there are ways to make that possible. The key concept is to be proactive. Below are a few ways to figure out what is the right niche for you:
- Take a variety of classes in college to see what sparks your interest
- Do internships in fields that you are interested in and you can get a better idea of what that job could actually be like
- Browse around online to look at different career options and employers in that field
- Find a way to get involved in the community. If your dream is to work with animals, volunteer at a local shelter. If you want to be an actor or director, give some time at theater in your area. This way you are giving back and learning more about what you want to do.
