Finding a job can be one of the most stressful things we do. Unfortunately, many of us find jobs we don’t love, and are often afraid to make the leap to something else when we are in a place we know isn’t a fit…if we even know what “something else” would be. You can actually find a career you love and be successful in it. Surprisingly, though, the first step to doing that does not involved searching through job sites or polishing your resume. It starts with doing some introspection to understand who you really are, what you really want in your career, and what tradeoffs you are and aren’t willing to make to get there. Once you understand those deeper questions, you may be surprised how quickly you find your dream job.
