How to only apply for jobs that you really want
It is important that when you go for a job, you are sure that you really want it, and will be happy to stay in this job for some time. It looks really bad on your CV if you have bounced from job to job over a period of years, and this inability to stay in any job for very long means that potential employers may pass over you for a job that you actually really want.
Obviously you can’t be certain of whether or not you will fit in and enjoy a job when you first apply, but there are some things you can do to make it more likely that you will choose a job that you work well in.
- Know what you want to do. If you are still deciding what you want to do then you will end up in jobs that aren’t necessarily a good fit for you, and lead you down a path that you don’t want to go down. Try to take some time to think about what you really want to do before you start looking for jobs.
- Research the companies. If you know what the company is about, what it would be like to work for them, and what your chances are of progression within the company, then you can be sure that you will be happy working there if you do get the job.
- Ask friends and family. The people that are closest to you really know you the best, so you can ask them if they see you in this role, and being happy doing this sort of work. Take any negative feedback seriously and rethink a job option if the people that love you don’t see you being happy in it.
- Wait. Even if you are in difficult financial situations, it is better to wait for a job opportunity you are happy about than to rush into something.
