Tips to Find your Dream Job:

  • Grab a piece of paper and write down everything you like to do, including your hobbies. Ask yourself which one out of the list you would want to do for the rest of your life. While doing so make sure you decide solely based on interest.
  • Take a quiz online
  • If your struggling to chose between two careers, write down the pros and cons of both of them and then decide which one you want to do. 
  • Know your motive. Know what you’re looking for in your dream job. Be it job security, satisfaction, or pay. When you know what you want, it’s easy to decide. 
  • If none of these helped, then ask the people around you. People who know what you’re good at and know what you like. If you like any of their suggestions, first do some research. DO NOT let anyone force you to be something you don’t like. 

And most importantly, don’t overthink it. More often than not, the answer is right in front of us. I know the question “What are you going to be when you grow up” has traveled with us since the day we spoke our first words and it can be stressful. Do something that you’ll wake up every morning and feel happy and proud about.
