Know your interests
When building a career, it’s ideal to have a foundation based on your interests. This is because through your interests and hobbies, you’d be able to find a job that helps you feel fulfilled doing every day. That even if you have to stay up all night and wake up early, you’re willing to work hard because you enjoy every minute of your job.
So if you want to begin your road to a lifetime of fulfilment and fun, have a foundational understanding of who you are and the interests you have.
Another reason to know your interests is that they hold the key to your skills. That through doing the same activities or building up certain knowledge over the years, you’ve become an expert without even having professional experience. This allows you to shine in whatever you’re doing and give the world something that only you can offer.
If you’ve yet to discover your skills, go over all your interests and see which one gives you the skills/knowledge necessary to help you find a job. Another way to learn your skills is by asking close friends or relatives about what you excel in. They’ll most likely make you realize that you have a talent that can make you a lot of money.
Each person is built differently. Some are extroverts who enjoy working with lots of people, while there are introverts who enjoy the solitary peace of working alone.
Finding out if you’re an extrovert or introvert is important because your career can be filled with both—with some people being more introverted or extroverted than others. With this in mind, you need an environment where you can work excellently with people whose type are the majority.
Once you’ve chosen a career, all the tasks associated with it are what you’re going to be doing for the rest of your life. So before you begin doing a certain job, ask yourself about the work process that allows you to flourish.
Are you more of a process-oriented person? Or do you prefer doing things at your own pace? Once you’ve answered these questions, search the internet and ask people in your interested industries what their work lives are like. Should you like the answers you’ve found, it’s then time to be part of the industry you’re interested in.
