Before you begin job searching, you must do this!

Finding a job is complicated enough, but not knowing the type of job you want, or if you will even like the job is worse. Remember the adage, “Choose a job you love, and you’ll never work a day in your life.” No one wants to be stuck in a job they hate! According to an article by the University of Southern California, “Being happy at work and loving what you do helps you become more productive and enhances your performance; when you enjoy your job you are prone to be more optimistic and motivated. You’ll also be a quick learner who makes fewer mistakes and more well-thought-out decisions.” So, before you begin your job search, here are 8 things you must do, to ensure you find a job that’s the right fit for you.

1. Learn more about yourself

The first thing you must do is get to know you. This means finding out your personality type, what your likes and dislikes are, and what interests you. Identifying your core values is also key. When you know what you value, you will know the type of job environment you need to work in to thrive. Choosing a career that fits your personality helps you know your strengths and weaknesses when interacting with coworkers and customers and better understand the type of people you work best with.
