Wow! Today you have made it to step 10. You are 1/3 through! Congrats! How did you score your desire to take actions to find your dream job in step 9? Hope it’s higher than 7. And if still isn’t, don’t worry. Our topic today will have you see things from a different perspective. You see, when looking for their dream job many people start with assessing if they are good enough for it. Naturally, after a few minutes of analysing if they fit and meet the criteria, they come up with a big list of things they can’t do or why they don’t fit. This either drives them to give up, try to fit in or simply look for a different opportunity …

“Fulfilled people know where and how they make a difference in this world.”

When you are looking for your dream job, one thing is clear. Unless you know WHERE and HOW you make a significant difference to your future employer in your dream job, why should they know? Making a difference is not about giving exciting promises which you may find challenging to deliver. It is about being aware of the impact your actions and behaviour have on others. Have your actions or behaviour resulted in improved situations, circumstances, perceptions or services for others, be it your colleagues, managers, customers, clients, users, patients? What have they gained, learnt, discovered from your work?
