Dream Job Hunter

December 19, 2007 at 7:22 pm 1 comment

We speak to a lot of people who are desperate to find their dream job. It’s one of the perennial problems of the modern day and there are many good reasons for getting it right. Work doesn’t seem like work if you’re doing what you love and you’ll most likely be much better at it and even better paid.

We believe that jobs which contribute towards sustainable development help give people a heightened sense of meaning and therefore love for their job – that is why we do what we do here at Bright Green.

But, it’s not at all easy to find that position. Even if you have an idea of what you want to do, which many people don’t, it takes time, dedication and self-awareness to find something that’s ‘right’ for you.

Here is a great article by Liz Ryan, which helps answer some of those questions and offering some valuable advice for people looking. After all, the first step in finding that dream job is being proactive, visualising and then going out and finding it. Additionally, if you’ve found the company you want to work for, and the ‘right’ job isn’t on their website, be persistent! It’s often easier to persuade someone to create your dream job for you (if you’re passionate enough) than it is to find it.
