CAREER: Major key to choosing the right career

Hey friends! Its been a while I posted something for you all. I’m really sorry it took this long. I was involved in so many things at the same time. But I can assure you that there are loads of posts in store for you all.

This is my first career article so am writing about the major key to choosing the right career. My dear, there is nothing worse than being in a job that frustrates the living out of you. A job where you are not happy going to, dancing when its friday morning and feel sad when its sunday evening. A job you don’t put in your all and feel reluctant to do anything but you have to stay because of the pay. This is the plight of many Nigerians who are in the wrong career. You do not want to join their clique right? Read on!
It doesn’t matter if you are a secondary school student, an undergraduate, a graduate or even working, you can choose to live right and enjoy your career life. The major key to it is identifying your “natural talent”.

***
We all have natural talents, certain tasks that come easy to us. When we use our natural talents, time moves fast and we tend to receive compliments for our abilities. Knowing where your natural talents lie is the key to choosing the right career. Of course we’re capable of doing other things, but those other tasks usually feel more like work. Focus on the things you love to do. What have you dreamed of doing in the past? What do you naturally enjoy doing? Jot down what comes to mind, no matter how improbable it seems.
Look for clues everywhere. Take note of projects or topics that stir your compassion or excite your imagination. Reflect on stories of people you admire. Ask yourself why certain activities make you happy, and pay attention to times when you are really enjoying yourself.

What do you always enjoy doing, and how can those skills be applied to a job?
Search or explore jobs related to those skills. Write down as many as possible even the silly ones too. Research well on these jobs. Have a discussion with your “inner man” and even people around you. With time, you’ll be able to strike some off and keep a good number which am sure would bring fulfilment and true satisfaction that is key to having a successful career. Its only in the right career that you can bring out your best.

Be patient. Remember that your search may take some time and you might have to go down a few different roads before finding the right career path. Time and introspection will help you identify the activities you most enjoy.

You can avoid the headache of being in a wrong career. Save yourself the frustration, anger, stress and worry that comes with choosing a wrong career. Save your energy, time, improve on your natural talents, increase your worth, earn right and live right. Thank God its friday!!! Have a wonderful weekend friends. Put a smile on someone’s face this weekend and stay grateful to God. *kisses*
Word for the weekend“Don’t paint yourself to be a bentley when you are a camry. You can do well to improve your model, step up your game. You would still be appreciated anyway”
I hope you found this very useful.

  1. Anty, such a nyn one right there. But I v got a question ao. Do we negotiate a career path with an uncompromising parent? Pls help.tks

    1. Olusegun, its going to be a difficult one especially when our parents have made their decisions clear. But we can pray to God about it and prove to them we are more successful and happier in the area we love no matter what it cost. Its definitely going to take a lot from us but time would solve the issue. Thank you
