Ready, Set, Go-Get Job Goals!
Ready, Set, Go-Get Job Goals
What does it take to set a job goal? First, is
knowing what you want, job seeker!
If you're willing to take anything, that is not
a goal. It's a desire, maybe, to NOT think
or act upon job goals. Taking any job, too,
often is a response made out of desperation.
Some times, you, job seeker, don't want
to take the time necessary to find out what
true values or interests you possess. That
can be a result of laziness, fear or plain old
procrastination. And, there is not a life
manual somewhere that will tell any job
seeker, who THEY REALLY ARE!
Finding out who the true you is, is often a lifetime
goal. That's a good start to find a life, out or
inside of work. Maybe work is, after all, the
continued life meaning. Job seeker, it is up to
you to define a life with passion, dedication and
Now, what about a current job goal? It is still
the same old story as the song said to find out
what you want, who you want to work with, what
you want to do, what skills you have and linking all
of that up with an employer.
If it helps, set a job goal for one day, increase it
up to two weeks, and on and on. Is that what will
get you to take action? And, are you ready?
Are you "set" to make your priorities in looking for
a job, real? Are you just daydreaming, hooked into
fear that no one will hire you or taking the lazy route?
There is ALWAYS a job out there for ANY job seeker!
Sometimes luck plays a part. Often, though it is
because of great preparation in truly finding work.
Which one are you, job searcher? Are you really
ready, are you intent upon putting action into finding
a good job?
You can be ready, set, and going for that good job
you need and want. Just like a long distance runner,
use these tools to get you out and in the race,
your own job race! Ready, set, go!
