Find the Perfect Job

Posted on: February 6, 2013

finding the good job- career

Sometimes the desire for a steady paycheck is so strong that we’ll talk our way into jobs where we won’t be happy. And that’s not good for anybody. Here are some simple ways to make sure the job is right for you.

  1. 1.    Be honest about who you are. Let them know what kind of person you really are, and what kinds of challenges you’re looking for. If this isn’t the right job, they might know of another one that is.
  2. 2.    Ask about the company. Find out what it’s like to work there, what their plans are for the company, and what kinds of people succeed there.
  3. 3.    Be open. While it may be tempting to hide undesirable things, like a long lapse in employment, it can work against you. But if you can be open and honest about even the negative things, and tell them what you’ve learned along the way, they’ll be more likely to trust you over somebody who tries to say they’re perfect.

Remember, even though you may really want a job, you should also want the right one. When you enjoy your work, you’ll be more successful.
