Utopia Living’s Naya Powell is here to give you her best advice on how to find a job that you love.
What is the first step someone should take when trying to find a job they love?
Brainstorm a list of everything that makes your spirit come alive, including industries, dream jobs, places activities, colors and things. Second, take an inventory of your strengths, gifts, and areas of passion. From there, begin to take a look at the connection and what industries offer a path to the job love of your life!
What actions can you take to hone your skills?
Internships will allow for experience with a reputable company. I also suggest volunteering, asking to job shadow someone in your desired field, or asking someone working in an ideal job for a career interview.
What three questions should you ask yourself?
Would I do this job for free? Why do I want to do this job? Does this job give me a sense of purpose and fulfillment?
If you didn’t have your current job, what do you see yourself doing?
I could see myself being a photographer, fashion stylist, interior designer or college professor. At this time, I play around with the first three in my personal life and have done the latter part-time on occasion in the past.
