3 + 1 Things To Do To Get Your Dream Job


Did you know?!

Gillian Barbara Lynne
, a British ballerina who was diagnosed when she was young with what today is called as something like ADHD (Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder). She performed badly at school and everyone thought that something was wrong with her. When her parents took her to a psychologist, the doctor said: ‘There is nothing wrong with your daughter. She is a dancer. Take her to a ballet school’. That’s what her parents did. She is the choreographer of Cats musical and the famous Phantom of the Opera.

Tom Cruise joined a seminary to become a priest. At 18, he abandoned this idea and decided to become an actor. In his own words, ‘I don't really keep counsel with others. I'm the kind of person who will think about something, and if I know it's right I'm not going to ask anybody. I don't go, "Boy, what do you think about this?" I've made every decision for myself - in my career, in my life’. The rest, as they say, is history.

Johnny Depp worked as an over-the-phone pen salesman before he became an actor.

If you’ve got some time on your hands, browse through the biographies of your favourite celebrity (or celebrities). You are likely to see that their career and fame did not happen overnight, some of them perhaps, would not have even thought twice about themselves becoming starts. For others, however, this would have been their only goal in life.

Possibly, your first job will not be your dream job; it will be, on the other hand, one of many others jobs that you will be doing while you’re working yourself to the top—or wherever you are happy to be. Even YOU however can get your dream job. Muovo would like to share with you these (3 + 1) quick tips that will help you in fulfilling your goals and start living your dream.

1. Learn about yourself – Take Time Off
Take all the time you need to find what you are really passionate about. Study yourself and see what you enjoy reading or browsing through the Internet or watching TV. Now brainstorm about these ‘finding’ and see what jobs can be related to these activities. Interested in taking a Gap Year? Or what about doing an internship?

2. Find a mentor
Finding someone who is already in the field, and possibly achieved what you would like to achieve, is indispensable. Besides giving you sound advice on how you should formulate a strategic plan to achieve your goals, he or she will or can open a lot of doors for you. You will also have an ally who will be willing to recommend you when you feel ready to apply for a new opportunity.

3. Speak to a career coach
Counselling services can be provided free by many institutions. The counsellour is likely to give you a self-evaluation test with a series of questions that you would need to answer (sometimes just tick Agree or Disagree, and so on). This will give you a heads up on what career is suited for you. Of course, you would already have had some directions (albeit small!) or inclinations perhaps, towards one subject or profession. The self-assessment will reinforce and unleash these ingrained feelings.

+1. Do this Career Test!
Click on New User. Create a log in username and password. Go to Match Careers and start answering the questions. After a set of questions, the test will ask you to either go straight for the results or else to continue answering more likes and dislikes. The more questions you answer, the more reliable the test results would be.
