Have you ever thought about finding your dream job? So what is the percentage? Ladies here are the stats:
"LinkedIn surveyed more than 8,000 professionals globally, and found that just 8.9% currently work in their childhood dream job, though another 21% say they at least work in a career that relates to their original dream job.
In the U.S. specifically, the breakdown is slightly worse: About 7% of those surveyed say they work in their actual dream job, and 21% say they work in a related career."
The Woman Hub’s goal is to introduce you into discovering ways, especially if you are in a rut, on how to find if not a childhood dream, at least an employment choice that is closest to your ideal. Find one you can wake up early every morning to pursue.
Yes, these jobs are available, but they may take some soul searching and Google, research for you to discover. We hope to discuss some ways, to find to hopefully find your life's calling.
Yes, I know what it is like to enjoy a dream job, because I have been doing my dream job now for over 20 years. It took a lot of inner search for me to find it, and following this blog may help you do the personal necessary research on your own, or with a firm like Careerleaf that may help.
Amit De is the Co-found of Careerleaf has created a platform used towards helping people search for their dream job. Unlike many other head hunter firm trying to help you search for a job in a regular firm, which Careerleaf will help you here too; it also will help you discover your real dream job of something that you feel you are meant to do.
Careerleaf breaks a person’s dream job down into 7 types of employment.
I will identify its dream job breakdown so if any reader has an interest she can contact the firm or go out on her own out towards a new lifestyle direction. Look at these twists as a lifestyle choice that may be available to you with a bit of research, and more inquiry.
1. CoolWorks ~ you create your very own job board for example a person might decide to live in France, Italy or any other foreign destination using her skills to not only finding an ideal place to work, learn a language, but also gain a real world experience. If not working in another country, then maybe working on a Cruise Ship might be another idea of finding a CoolWorks job or even becoming a Flight Attendant for an airline flying abroad.
2. The Muse ~ here is where you decide to work for a regular firm but you begin a study into different aspects of the firm like you are interviewing them instead of them interviewing you. It is for you to decide what firm for which you would like to work. What is the product or service that you might or might not like? What sort of culture do they have? What do their offices look like? Are they cramped or do employees have more personal space. It is like “Window Shopping” your job. Why this works is because you have done such a thorough investigation of that firm that very few other potential employees do. HR firms will recognize your work and especially if you have a firm like Careerleaf who can talk for you in your behalf, that way the firm will have a hard time turning you down for an interview. Why? It’s because very few job applicants will go to that amount of research as you have done.
3. Care.com ~ most caregivers occupy this designation. In fact, there are so many different Care Centers and not just nursing and working in a doctor’s office or a hospital. There are firms that do Senior Care like Angeles. There are firms that handle Pet care and if there aren’t you might be able to help out a Veterinarian. One of the advantages of this type of work is its flexibility. This type of job might be easier for you to find, especially if it may become a second job.
4. FreelanceSwitch ~ here is where you search for your not non 9 – 5 job. Here are jobs like online professors, beauticians, consultants; market traders, where there woman may even become nurses involved within the senior care industry and where they can trade time off, here or there. Many of these people make enough money due to the demand of their training and because they receive enough money per hour, to pay their bills while working less. Also job or personal coaching is another possibility of making a FreelanceSwitch.
5. BilingualLink ~ if you are fluent in one or two other languages you might be able to work for an international firm or government as an interpreter. You may have a 9 – 5 job or you may even begin working out from your home as a sales or even customer care representative helping people from other countries other than the US. Working for a company you may also be involved in writing newsletters and other forms of written correspondence to maintain good relationships if not with customers with foreign firms in non-English speaking countries.
6. Flexjobs ~ there are a lot of these jobs that are available but seem to offer rip off artists who can take you in. That is where Careerleaf can enter. They have over 50 legitimate career categories from which oy can choose. What I would suggest if you decide you want to pursue a different career, remain at your present job, while starting your Flexjob, Do so on your own time in the evenings or over the weekends. It’s like growing a business, it may take you over a year or two to carve out this new career, so don’t leave your present job until you are making enough money to support this new transition.
7. Joblux ~ I know of some women who may complete a degree in fashion merchandizing who might decide they may or may not want to work for Macey’s but may be part of this category maybe as a consultant within their own business. There are people who sell clothing, jewelry, and some for a firm and many owning their own business even as an MLM representative or doing it alone. Many of these occupations are niche jobs, for creative people to enjoy. They are called Joblux because they do work that most people feel they are professionals and have networked to interface with many of the rich and famous and or more affluent individuals withi9n their own communities.
