How to find your dream Job
Are you feeling the bombardment of messages from family, friends and the media telling you ‘a desk job (like a manager or an accountant) is the only respectable way to make a living’ - the exact kind of job that bores you to tears. Or you’re in a job that isn’t fulfilling and you can’t stop dreaming about doing something completely different. What should you do?
Too many people put off pursuing what they really want in a career. In many cases, the problem isn’t a lack of opportunity; it’s a lack of information about all the amazing opportunities that exist. But as I can tell you first hand, your dream job is probably out there waiting for you; all you have to do is choose the right path towards it.
There are over 3 million American jobs that need to be filled. We are currently experiencing what economist call a job-skills gap, which is simply a mismatch between the skills people possess and the skills employers actually need.
One of the best ways I have found is through Vocational and practical skills training. This is not just what was once known as ‘blue collar jobs’. In fact, it can be the ticket to well-compensated careers in business and entrepreneurship, hospitality, aviation, health care, graphic design, mechanical engineering, information It’s never too late. Anyone, at any stage in their career can pursue a skills-based education.
In short, there’s never been a better time to seize these opportunities to follow your dream.
