If you’ve been stuck at the bottom of the line in your career, and you’re just getting fed up with the monotony of daily life, then it might be time to step up your career. We’re so bad at sticking with what we know, rather than exploring all of the options we have out there. We’re so bad at enduring long days at the office, sitting in front of a computer, doing a job that we don’t even like. But you’ve got to think of it like this.
“Growth is not about shifting to a funky new resume format or subscribing to the latest exclusive job website. It’s about having the right mindset, taking your career seriously and doing a whole bunch of little things, day in and day out, to ensure you stay highly connected, current and marketable.” – University of Washington
You’ve probably got around 30+ years until you find you hit retirement age. That’s 30 years of doing the same thing over and over. That is unless, you decide that it’s time to step up your career, and you follow the advice we’ve got below to make sure you do just that.
Do Something You Love
Life is for living, so you might as well live it doing something you love! There’s plenty of careers out there that will be able to accommodate for this, you just need to figure out what your dream career is going to be! For some, it’s a career that they have a trade-in, or have educational qualifications towards. So, in school, you might have absolutely looked cooking class, and it might have manifested into a love for home baking. So why not see if you can go down a career in this line of work.
Even if you just have to get some experience to begin with, at least you’re doing something you really find interesting. Baking was just one option that a select group of people will have. Your likes and dislikes will be unique to you, so see if there is anything that you love in your personal life, and see if you can make a career from it.
Do Something Well Paid
There’s nothing that’s going to spur you on more to work than being in a job that’s well paid. It instantly makes the role more attractive and getting up to go to work every day all of the sudden doesn’t seem to hard. One role that seems to get a lot of money is truck driving. They might have to work the long hours and be away from home from time to time, but the pay in return is great for it.
If you get your heavy rigid licence, you could be on the roads with a trust company within no time. You just need to make sure your driving licence is clean at the minute, and that you would prepare to tackle all of the demands of the job. If you hate driving as it is, then this job is definitely not going to be suitable for you!
Do Something Rewarding
A rewarding career really will change your life. It’ll give you something to look forward to in the morning, and something to be proud of at the end of every shift. Rewarding careers are those like nursing, teaching, policing etc. Or, you could even venture into volunteer work to potentially lead to a full-time role as something like a volunteers coordinator.
