6 Tips to Find Your Dream Job

Some people expect that their employer or their colleagues are responsible for creating the circumstances whereby they love their job. However, your dream job begins with you: the degree to which you know yourself and know what you want from work, the extent to which you are curious and seek opportunities for personal and professional growth, and your ability to ask questions, clarify expectations and engage in the work at hand.

Most people love learning about themselves: their strengths, their personality, their gifts and talents. More than just a learning exercise, however, all of these aspects are important in understanding what would be ideal for you. You also want to choose work which engages you.

Make. Work. Better.
