5 Juicy Steps To finding A Fulfilling Career.
It can be hard to find that perfect job. It is said that the average adult changes careers up to seven times before finally settling into a job that engages and fulfills them. So pretty much, every time your style changes, so does your occupation. It seems a little much, does it not?
Even though it can be important to gain exposure to different occupations and lifestyles, many of the jobs that we dedicate years of our life to don’t really give anything back… not a very juicy lifestyle! Read this article from the Eat Your Career blog on five essential steps to creating career fulfillment. It’s easier than you think!
Five Essential Steps to Create Career Fulfillment
Written by Chrissy Scivicque
Career fulfillment (or, as I like to call it, career nourishment) can often seem like an elusive beast. Figuring out what it is and how to find it is a difficult process for many.
The first thing I tell my coaching clients is that career fulfillment isn’t something you FIND, it’s something you CREATE. And the process, while different for everyone, involves five essential steps:
1. Know Your Needs
The vast majority of the people I coach know quite clearly what they don’t want from their work. More often than not, it’s everything they’re currently experiencing. But that’s not enough. Knowing what you don’t want doesn’t give you a big enough picture. You have to know what you do want and, more importantly, what you need.
Your career goal isn’t to simply sidestep misery. You want to achieve (at least some level of) fulfillment. In order to do that, you must have a clear understanding of your unique personal and professional needs. It takes a lot of self-reflection but the good news is I’ve created a free mini-workbook to help you through the process. It outlines the Eat Your Career Hierarchy of Career Needs and helps you determine what’s working and not working in your current situation. If you don’t have it yet, pick it up here.
