Thought of the day: Choosing the right career

Have you ever wondered if you were making the right decision when accepting a job? Or have you ever been in a job, enjoyed some of the tasks but not feeling completely in your place?

Sure I believe that we don’t have to feel great every single day at our job, but I’m also a strong believer that you shouldn’t let yourself be defined by a job title but rather by the tasks that you do.

I’ve seen first hand that the same titled job can be very different from one company to the next. Every company has their own way of working and hence a description for a job that fits within their structure. I am currently a sales person, I’ve just changed company a month ago and my job has nothing to do with my previous sales position! What I love about being a sales is that you get to actually talk with clients – the end user of the product or service you sell – and see what is missing in their day to day. Our job is to figure out what is not going right and making a change. Doesn’t this sound amazing?
The issue is, being a sales also means a lot of prospection and honestly I don’t find this really stimulating.

I have a very creative mind, I’ve always loved drawings, photos, theatre, interior design, fashion and so on. For some reason I’ve ended up on the wrong side of the business world you would think! I’ve really loved what I’ve been doing until now but it just doesn’t feel right.

So here I go, out into the world again, looking for the perfect job description that can answer my desire for communication and understanding a message that brands want to put across while helping in a more creative and stimulating way, being able to get all my ideas out there.

So here is to the thought of the day to ask yourself if you feel stimulated and energetic when you think of your job because even though you don’t have to be happy to go to work every day, you should still enjoy the majority of your tasks!
